Guided Meditation and Yoga (one-on-one)
Call to schedule your appointment today: 919-401-9333.
Facilitator: Beth Farlow, Integrated Health Coach
Mindfulness Meditation is based on the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction program taught by Duke School of Integrative Medicine. When we practice mindfulness meditation, we cultivate our awareness of the present moment. During our sessions, we will use various meditation and gentle yoga techniques to practice present moment awareness, calm breathing, mindful movement and deep relaxation. With mindfulness, we open the possibility to becoming fully alive, living in the richness of each moment of our lives. Within this awakening, we gain access to our deepest inner resources for living, healing, and coping with stress.
Acupuncture addresses many health issues including joint pain, muscle tightness, digestive discomfort, stress and anxiety, and much more. The National Institute of Health has found acupuncture successfully treats many common side effects of conventional treatment, such as post-surgical pain, chemotherapy-associated symptoms, insomnia, poor digestion and emotional stress. Read more about this non-clinical treatment’s benefits here.
We partner with Triangle Acupuncture Clinic (for patients in active treatment) and Chapel Hill Acupuncture to bring the best possible acupuncture care to our participants. Please call us at 919-401-9333 to schedule your appointment today.
Our Art Cart volunteers visit cancer patients, family members, and caregivers while they are in the waiting rooms or receiving treatment. Participants choose an art piece to design and decorate for themselves or loved ones.
You can find the Art Cart at Rex Cancer Center 1st and 3rd Wednesdays 9:30-11:30am

Caring for Caregivers through Respite Care
Since our founding in 1995, Cornucopia has always supported caregivers and family members of those in cancer treatment. We want to make sure these “frontline advocates” have the mind-body-spirit support they need, too. Part of that commitment is through respite care.
We have trained volunteers who provide temporary non-medical support at your home to relieve family members from the physical, emotional and spiritual stressors and demands of providing around-the-clock care. This enables caregivers to take a worry-free break and participate in a favorite activity like going to a movie with a friend, shopping, visiting a park, or taking a yoga class. Or, perhaps you need to take care of your own physical and emotional needs with a doctor, dentist or counseling appointment. We know caregivers, like cancer patients, experience fear and uncertainty, loneliness and isolation.
Our Respite Care Program can give you rejuvenating energy, empowerment and hope. For additional information and to schedule Respite Care assistance, please call us at (919)401-9333.
Our Respite Care Program is made possible by a generous grant from the Home Health Foundation of Chapel Hill Endowment Fund of the Triangle Community Foundation.
