Calendar of Events

PSCI Center Stage Arts Workshops

This series of workshops offers opportunity to PSCI patients and caregivers to relax, pleasantly distract themselves and build community with each other, using the arts as a vehicle. The workshops are not taught by therapists nor are they offered as therapy; we deliberately choose accomplished artists who are excellent teachers and lead engaging projects in order to keep the workshops non-clinical and fresh. The series is based on the belief that thoughtfully-chosen art engagement is an integral part of health and well-being.

Joyful Movement Workshop

Joyful Movement offers cancer patients and their caregivers a way to enjoy the rediscovery of body and breath. Dancing in a chair, supported by holding the chair or standing free, we will move to music from Doo Wap to Motown and from Classical to Folk.
Joyful Movement workshops are designed to:
• improve breathing
• enhance self-confidence and grace
• give the opportunity to move with others
• bring you JOY!
