One of the most difficult things after cancer treatment is the monumental changes you have to come to terms with when cancer treatment ends. 

We humans like to think life will go according to plan, and when that plan gets the rug pulled out from under it, we find ourselves shell shocked and confused.

Yet the truth is that everything in life changes, that's the one fundamental...nothing is permanent, everything will change.

In today's show you'll hear about 

- 2 psychological theories that tie into the reasons it's so difficult for us to process the changes  we face after cancer treatment.

-How being diagnosed with cancer can result in PTSD and the signs and symptoms to look out for.

-A simple way to come to terms with the impermanence of life.

-The science and philosophy that show how facing impermanence can result in living a happier life

You can get a FREE download of a meditation on impermanence that I recorded for this show HERE
