Overview

Being Well (Even When You're Sick): Mindfulness Practices for People with Cancer and Other Serious Illnesses by Elana Rosenbaum

Maintaining a state of well-being and equanimity in the midst of serious disease is a challenge, but mindfulness can help make it possible. It is a process of bringing a fierce but loving attention to everything that arises in our mind and body. The simple techniques Elana Rosenbaum presents here are the same ones she uses with the people in her practice of mindfulness-based psychotherapy and stress reduction—and that she uses herself as a cancer survivor. These are methods that offer proof positive that it is indeed possible not only to “have a life” while you’re seriously ill, but that the life can include satisfaction, ease, and happiness.

This book includes a downloadable companion 60-minute audio program with seven simple mindfulness practices.

About the Author

Elana Rosenbaum, MS, LICSW, is a leader in the clinical application of mindfulness meditation to cancer care. After she was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in 1995, her ability to embody mindfulness in the face of adversity led to the development of a mindfulness-based intervention for bone marrow transplant patients at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, Emory University, and Dana Farber Cancer Institute. She is adjunct faculty at the renowned Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, where she worked with Jon Kabat-Zinn as one of the pioneering teachers. She's been educating patients and healthcare professionals in mindfulness for over twenty-five years. Elana has a private practice in psychotherapy in Worcester, Massachusetts, and is a sought-after teacher, speaker, workshop leader, and research consultant.
