Providing patients, their care partners, and families an opportunity to attend free meditation classes focused on mindfulness, relaxation, and breathing


Mental health and wellbeing is a critical component of living with a brain tumor. As such, the National Brain Tumor Society is very pleased to introduce our “Meditation Mondays” program.

Victoria (Tori) Best, PharmD, BCGP, RPh, and her family have supported NBTS through the years to honor her mom, Margaret Mary Baczek, who passed away from a brain tumor in 2014.

To continue her passion for volunteering with NBTS and honoring the memory of Margaret, Tori – who is a meditation, mindfulness, and yoga teacher (RYT® 200) – has partnered with NBTS to provide free virtual meditation classes to brain tumor patients, their caregivers, and families.

Tori welcomes people from all backgrounds and abilities to learn techniques of meditation and mindfulness that may help manage stress and anxiety, improve mood and quality of life, enhance focus, and find peace in their daily lives.

These virtual meditation classes are held on the second Monday of each month at 7 pm ET/4 pm PT. You can sign up for free classes here. After you sign up, you will receive a confirmation email with information on how to connect to the class. For more information, see our privacy policy.

Meditation Teacher:
Tori Best, PharmD, BCGP, RPh

Tori has been cultivating her own personal practice for more than 15 years and teaching in her local community for three years. She completed her formal teacher training with Sanctuary Studios in Plymouth, MA in 2017, after her mom’s glioblastoma diagnosis turned her world upside down. Her personal practice helped turn it right-side up again, and she felt called to help others find that same sense of peace, connection, and resilience within themselves. She welcomes people from all backgrounds and abilities to come sit with everything they need to sit with, to come breathe through everything they need to breathe through, and to hold space within themselves for what is deeply human within us all.
