    Second Wind: Rebuilding Your Sex Life After Cancer | Juni Bucher

    Second Wind: Rebuilding Your Sex Life After Cancer | Juni Bucher

    When you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, sex is often the last thing on your mind. There are many different factors that may affect your sex life. Some of these factors include the type of cancer you have, what type of treatment you are receiving, how long you are going through treatment, and whether or not you have any side effects. You could be feeling so fatigued that you can’t even think about sex. 
    In this candid episode with my guest Juni Bucher, we're discussing this taboo subject and learn how to rediscover your sexual self as a cancer survivor.
    Juni is a breast cancer survivor. Her first hand experience handling her new normal caused her to see things differently. Eventually it led her to completely change her life and career after her diagnosis. She is now a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP) and certified meditation teacher, with a focus on the holistic side of healing. Juni also is the host of her own podcast: TATA, Cancer!

    Stay Anchored Meditation: Finding Compassion

    Stay Anchored Meditation: Finding Compassion

    Compassion is an attitude of empathy, caring, and understanding for ourselves and for others. It means recognizing when we’re struggling, offering kindness to ourselves and acknowledging those same struggles in other people. Compassion can transform the way we think about the world, giving us hope that even small actions can have a positive impact on our lives and the lives of others. 
    While difficulties come along with life, reminding yourself of how strong you have been in the past and that you have the capacity to make it through.  Embrace the hardships you encounter, for overcoming these will bring about new strength and more compassion.


    Mindfully connect and honor your ability to care with this compassion meditation…my gift to you!
