A Day of Art and Yoga
Walk With Sally partners with Resin Art Studio for a quarterly art healing program designed specifically for children impacted by cancer. The day starts with a yoga session led by a yoga instructor to connect the mind and body. From there, the mentees and mentors will have the chance to express themselves using their choice of art – photography, sculpting, painting, drawing, graffiti and music.
For this Mentor Roundtable we chose 3 of our Veteran Mentors to be guest speakers. We had an open discussion about creating boundaries, opening up about cancer with your mentee, how to create a deeper connection, etc. Our Walk With Sally Social Worker was there for mental health support and the newer mentors were able to ask questions and gain insight from our panel.
