Break Out Sessions

Regaining Intimacy After Cancer

Presented by: Myra Durkin, LICSW

Many people have thoughts and feelings about intimacy and sex during and after cancer. If you are among them, you are not alone. I am a psychotherapist and certified sex therapist who has discussed these issues with countless people in similar circumstances. I have seen how incredibly helpful talking about it all can be. This session will be a gentle discussion of people’s struggles with intimacy, sex, and cancer, and will focus on concrete ways to get you through it.

Aphrodisiacs: Exploring the Anecdotal and Scientific Evidence

Presented by: Megan Leighton, RD, LDN, Oncology Dietitian

Since ancient times, people have used a variety of foods, herbs, and extracts as natural remedies to increase sexual desire and performance. In this discussion, we will examine historically used aphrodisiacs, along with current research, to answer the big question: do aphrodisiacs really work?

Yoga Exercises for Stress, Sleep, and Self-Soothing

Presented by: Liz Owen, C-IAYT

Yoga is a powerful practice for alleviating anxiety, stress, and insomnia they arise in the midst of life’s uncertainties. Liz Owen is a lead yoga teacher and co-author of three NIH-funded studies at Boston University School of Medicine on yoga as a tool for easing depression and anxiety. Liz is coauthor of The Yoga Effect: A Proven Practice for Depression and Anxiety, (Da Capo Lifelong). She will discuss the data to support yoga practice and presents gentle movements, simple breath techniques, and a deep relaxation that will help you meet your emotions each day and night with a calm mind. Appropriate for everyone, no experience required.

Songwriting - Double session to walk away with a group created song

Presented by: Antje Duvekot

Bring your thoughts about what helped you get through and create a song with Antje Duvekot. She is a singer-songwriter and guitarist based in Somerville, Massachusetts. She holds three top songwriting awards including the Kerrville New Folk Competition's Best New Folk Award, Boston Music Award for Outstanding Folk Act, and Grand Prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest. Play this NPR Podcast and go to 2:35–8:00 to hear about a similar songwriting session that Antje Duvekot held with Boston Latin students during the first year of COVID isolation.

Music Therapy

Presented by: Adriana Ausch

Come and reconnect with your inner source of movement to explore ways of connecting to music using motion and gesture. We will discover the therapeutic and wellness opportunities of music and movement and the relationships between music, shared experiences, gesture, and inner awareness.

Simple Psychedelic Drawing

Presented by: Sheri Kennedy

Grab a few pieces of paper and a pencil and whatever pens, sharpies, highlighters or markers you can find at home. In this virtual workshop, we will do a simple drawing exercise that just might produce a trippy visual experience, followed by a “mind manifesting” group conversation. No artistic experience necessary.
