Insights Into Cancer: Restringing the Beads of Our Own Story

Tue, Jun 14, 2016
7:00pm to 9:00pm PT

Description

Michael Eselun, BCCJune is Cancer Survivorship Month! Join us for the latest lecture in our Insights into Cancer series featuring Michael Eselun, BCC, a certified inter-faith chaplain for the Simms/Mann-UCLA Center for Integrative Oncology.

The lecture will explore the power implicit in our own stories--the journey of our lives. That power that lies within our stories can help us explain us to ourselves and others, it can even sustain us... or it can sometimes haunt us. Either way, a diagnosis of cancer not only adds a new chapter to the story of our lives but it can sometimes insist that we reinterpret a previous chapter or two. How we interpret those stories can even help us to make spiritual sense of our lives... how do those stories intersect with our beliefs about any larger truth or reality? We might think the meaning of our story is fixed and unchanging or we might be surprised by what we find when we revisit it yet again.
