Mental health and well-being is a critical component of living with a brain tumor. As such, the National Brain Tumor Society created our “Meditation Mondays” program with the goal of providing patients, their care partners, and families an opportunity to attend free meditation classes focused on mindfulness, relaxation, and breathing.
Led by Victoria (Tori) Best, PharmD, BCGP, RPh, Meditation Mondays is an opportunity for patients with a brain tumor and care partners 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.
Please note that Meditation Mondays will not be held in May 2023 due to in-person staffing of our annual Head to the Hill event. We invite you to browse past recordings this May and join us for our upcoming classes on April 10 and June 12.
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 since 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. Tori completed her RYT®️ 200 with Sanctuary Studios in Plymouth, MA, in 2017 and studied with Indra Yoga Institute in 2020 with instructors and newfound family from across the globe to become an RYT®️ 500. She welcomes people from all backgrounds to come sit with everything they need to sit with, to breathe through everything they need to breathe through, and to hold space within themselves for what is deeply human within us all.
