Une journée de ressourcement ce 23 septembre à Overijse

This workshop is cancelled, sorry for the disappointment. See you next time.

 

Cancer Support Group invite ses membres et ses adhérents à une nouvelle aventure dans l’espace du Tai Chi et du Chi Gong. Nos deux professeurs, Christiane et Ellen, vont nous guider pour mieux nous préparer pour l’entrée dans les mois d’hiver tout en gardant bien les trésors de l’été. http://www.cancer-support.eu/events/journee-tai-chi-et-chi-gong-le-23-septembre-a-overijse-accueillir-labondance

Constellation Community/New place, new start in 2014/workshop 24-27 Jan in Brussels

New workshops in Brussels

As we enter the third year of constellation community practice and training, Lena and Rainer are now coming to Brussels three times in 2014. The themes for the open workshops and trainings are about health, organizations, work and business, and family.

Find the dates and topics here: www.constellationcommunity.org/seminars

This 24-27 January you can work or train yourself in facilitating constellations around health in body and mind, integrating yourself for higher levels of performance at work and in life.

New place in Brussels

We are happy to move to the intimate place of l’art du chi in Uccle, rue des Griottes 43. Hosted by Simone and Jan Mattijs, we will be meeting and working in a warm open space, surrounded by their green garden, close to the Calevoet train station.

 

The practice spreads

The community has grown last year with 5 newly certified practitioners that now offer their own workshops in community style. This year, Lena and Rainer expand their training offer into more regions, like Austria, Sweden, Germany, and maybe Brasil.

Voici les opportunités de travailler avec Marie-Hélène Elleboudt en Belgique (et en français):

We are looking much forward to meeting you here and then. We are grateful for your recommending the community practice to your friends and colleagues that will benefit from exploring their complex and somewhat persistent issues trough body sensations.

Warm regards,

Lena Jacobsson and Rainer v. Leoprechting

Complementary care refers to treatments that are used along with regular medical care. Some treatments that are used along with regular treatment are meditation to reduce stress, acupuncture to help relieve pain, or peppermint tea to relieve nausea.

Some complementary methods are known to help, while others have not been tested. Examples: Reflexology, Aromatherapy, Yoga, herbal therapies, special diets …

CANCER SUPPORT GROUP asbl

Nobody chooses to get cancer and it isn’t a pleasant experience. But it can be much less unpleasant if you get the help and support you need.

In most EU countries, we get first class medical care and for us as officials, the Sickness Insurance picks up the bill but often some extra help is welcome particularly for those people whose family is not on the spot.

CANCER SUPPORT GROUP asbl

CANCER SUPPORT GROUP asbl

Personne ne choisit d’avoir le cancer et cela n’a rien d’agréable. Mais cela peut-être plus facile si l’on est aidé et soutenu.

Dans la plupart des pays de l’Union, nous bénéficions de soins médicaux de premier ordre et pour nous, fonctionnaires, l’assurance maladie prend en charge les factures mais bien souvent, une autre forme d’aide serait la bienvenue, a fortiori pour ceux qui résident loin de leurs proches.
