All of the Life Lessons shared are from:


Below are insights and Life Lessons from classes hosted by
Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan's Cancer Care Program

The Purpose of these Classes is to Expand Perceptions


Interested in hosting this series
for your organization?

I invite you on a journey of self-discovery as we explore
Life Lessons, experience healing harp meditations,
and enjoy inspiring insights encouraging us to
slow down and compassionately embrace
the fullness of who we are

Life Lessons below can be shared in 1, 2, 3, or 4 classes.

Sample Schedule for a 4 week class:

Week 1


When I'm caught in doing, I'm resisting being

Change is constant so dance within the moment

I have the choice to choose how to live my life

It's OK to have my own belief system

Week 2


It's important to take time for myself

Listen, trust and choose that which is most loving and supportive to me

The only way to know a feeling is to feel it


Week 3


A shift in belief, expands perceptions, and alters the experience

Judgment and assumptions restrict possibilities

My healing comes from within


Week 4


Release attachments and live fully without masks

Be open to love and allow it to flow freely

I AM not my experiences...I AM soooo much more!

Each Life Lesson comes from  personal experiences
with breast cancer outlined in my book:

Loving Life...all of it, is a journey of self-discovery.

It's about falling in love with every aspect of ourselves.

It's about expanding perceptions and compassionately embracing change ~ within and around us.

It's a journey I will walk until my very last breath because there is so much to discover! 

How others experienced this class series:


Thank you for sharing your class, “A Walk with Cancer, Compassion and Conscious Self-Care” to members of the Cancer Support Community of Greater St. Louis. In reviewing the program survey results, I learned that after participating in your program, our participants felt lower levels of stress, lower levels of anxiety, felt more hopeful and felt more connected with others.  


About your instruction, one member stated, “her teachings are practical, lovely and given gently.”


I am grateful you reached out to share your story, your gifts and your energy and provide the healing space for our community members to breathe. I would love to explore offering this class again in the future.
