Course Information

Finding Calm Where You Never Would Have Looked

Do you find that having cystic fibrosis has come to define you?  It can be hard to find yourself in the midst of treatments, medications, doctor visits, hospital stays, and constant concern over that magic number, the FEV1.  Having a chronic illness like cystic fibrosis is stressful, who are we kidding?

What is often forgotten is that there is much more that is RIGHT about us than is WRONG!  Using the techniques taught in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, we can develop skills that will help us stay afloat in times of chaos, and get more in touch with aspects of ourselves that are untouched by problems with an epithelial chloride channel!

What is Mindfulness:

  • Mindfulness is simply purposefully paying attention to what is happening in the present moment, without judgment.
  • The present moment is where life unfolds, and it is only here where choice is possible.
  • By cultivating the practice of mindfulness, we begin to see where we tend to be on “autopilot,” and learn to use compassion and courage to make conscious choices about how we allow our lives to unfold, rather than feeling completely out of control.
  • Mindfulness practice is ideal for cultivating greater awareness of the unity of mind and body, as well as of the ways our unconscious thoughts, feelings, and behaviors can undermine emotional and physical health.
  • This class will be an 8-week intensive training in mindfulness based on ancient healing practices. In addition to the weekly classes, there will be one full day retreat scheduled toward the end of the course.  
  • The mind and body are linked.  We know this now through innumerable well-designed scientific studies, and we are learning more every day about how this works.  Don’t kid yourself into thinking that you have no input into your health simply because your disease is genetic.

Julie Desch, M.D., is the founder of New Day Wellness, a 501 (3) (c) organization with a mission to coach and train wellness to people with chronic illness.  She has been a wellness coach and personal trainer to people with cystic fibrosis for over five years.  Julie has been a meditator for over 13 years, and credits this practice for helping her live a healthy and happy life with cystic fibrosis.
