OREGON KI SOCIETY - SALEM
Control Cancer's Stress 
A Therapy for the Cancer Community

Everyone in the cancer community, patients, caregivers, and healthcare professionals, feels stress that can be overwhelming.

You can control that stress and maintain strong mental and emotional health by the daily practice at home of Ki Meditation and Ki Breathing.
 
"Meditation and deep breathing have been shown to help in the healing process. Ki meditation and Ki breathing are effective relaxation techniques that will benefit patients undergoing treatment for cancer." 
- Natasha Tiffany, MD

If you do these exercises every day, you will create a condition of mind where the worries, anxieties, and fears do not have a way in, and you can live your life as if they did not exist.

The Oregon Ki Society teaches these exercises in a structured series of consultations over a four-week period.
 
At the first consultation, lasting 30 minutes, you will be taught both exercises and given advice on how to begin daily practice. The exercises are intended to be done at home for at least ten minutes a day, every day, as medicine for your mind.

They require no special equipment, no special environment, and no assistance is needed. Anyone can do it!

Three more consultations, one week apart, are meant to refresh and develop the exercises, and to answer any questions you might have about them. They last 15 minutes.

The instructor is Bob Jones, who has been teaching with the Oregon Ki Society for over 35 years. He is a cancer survivor.
 
"Bob Jones is a Ki master, and an expert, patient teacher whom I highly recommend as you start to apply the Ki method."
