Description of Organization

Cancer Wellness House was founded in 1997 to complement traditional medical treatment. Programs focus on holistic wellness programming including mindfulness, meditation, hypnosis, yoga, massage and therapeutic touch, as well as providing support groups for patients, caregivers, and family members.

Grant(s) Awarded

In 2010, a grant in the amount of $2,000 was awarded to the Cancer Wellness House to provide scholarships to the Ski to Live Cancer Survivor clinics, which unites Zen Buddhism practice with the physical practice of skiing. The goal was to promote hope, health and healing among those affected with cancer by exposing them to Big Mind Zen Buddhism.  Created by Zen Master, Genpo Roshi, Big Mind is a simple, facilitated voice dialog which allows practioners to access consciousness from both an ego-centered and universal perspective.
