As practitioners of meditation and yoga, we know that the conditions necessary for happiness and peace are always already available for each of us —in the present moment— regardless of circumstance.
We know that material possessions come and go, that financial successes wax and wane, that sensory pleasures are fleeting, and that each of us, in these human bodies, will at some point face sickness, aging, and death. We are each also aware of and have experienced the suffering caused by the wide-spread disease of cancer. Through mindfulness-based practice, we also know this: That while change and pain in life are inevitable, suffering is optional.
At the PFACF, we are dedicated to improving quality of life by providing funding for cancer research at Dana Farber, and through mindfulness-based yoga and meditation. We offer programs to cancer patients, survivors, and their families and caregivers, as well as to healthcare providers and to the greater community, including children and teens in local schools, teachers, those in recovery, and to anyone who desires the benefits of practice—regardless of affiliation, socioeconomic background, ethnicity, or ability to pay—so that all may be happy, healthy, and free from suffering: One pose at a time. One breath at a time.
