Time to Talk

Intended Audience

All members including people living with cancer, family members and significant caregivers.

Program Description

Time to Talk is a gathering intended to provide just that, time to talk with people who understand what it is to have cancer. The Wellspring program leader begins each meeting with a TEDTalk or a short YouTube video, followed by deep and meaningful discussion. The topics may include travel, the environment, wellness, global affairs, science, research, arts, culture, and everything in between.

Benefits and Impact

This program is designed to be enlightening and enriching – with no stress or pressure. There is no preparation required. All you have to do is show up in this safe and comfortable space where you are welcome to share your thoughts and listen to each other people’s views and ideas on a new and different topic each time. For some, reading articles or a book right now is challenging, possibly due to time restraints, fatigue, lack of focus or memory, or other issues. Yet, you might appreciate the opportunity to engage in fun and interesting dialogues, and connect with others.

What to Expect at a Session

You will experience in-depth sharing of opinions and perspectives on different topics. You will meet individuals in a virtual roundtable who have diverse backgrounds and a wealth of experience that has led them to who and where they are today. Individuals will take turns sharing their stories and why they feel the way they do about a certain topic or issue. There will be fun, laughter, sadness and thought-provoking discussion.
