The inaugural “Service of the Heart” event offers free, private, one-on-one DASA (Developing Awareness through Self-Actualization) meditation instruction for breast cancer patients and their primary caregivers on Oct. 12 and Oct. 13 in Courtenay.
The event runs from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. both days, at Crown Isle Dental Health Centre, 444 Lerwick Road, #220.
Instructional sessions are taught in a calm, private and professional setting. Breast cancer survivors are encouraged to add their name to the event waitlist.
DASA Certified Meditation Instructors join together in conjunction with October’s breast cancer awareness month; as a service of the heart, they will offer free meditation training to breast cancer patients and their caregivers. The goal is to offer 108 men and women in need personal meditation instruction, a donation value of $31,860.
“The DASA method has proven to lessen stress, reduce emotional and physical pain, and promote a sense of calm and well being; in combination, these improvements offer support for health and healing,” said DASA executive director Lorraine Alexander.
Crown Isle Dental Health Centre has donated office space for this two-day event.
DASA Meditation celebrates over 44 years of service in teaching. The “Service of the Heart” event is one of many ways DASA reaches out to those in need, providing a valuable tool for health and wellness.
The Service of the Heart event is being offered simultaneously in four cities, Courtenay, BC, Pittsburgh, PA, Santa Rosa, CA, and Sebastopol, CA.
