This meditation is for anyone, regardless of what has happened to you until now. 

Although you are in the home of The Menopause And Cancer podcast, I was told that many people listen to my meditations, even if they have not had a cancer diagnosis or are not in menopause. And that’s totally ok!

You are so welcome!

Many of us face ill health in so many different ways and this can be the most challenging time in our lives. 

We feel broken somehow, it comes with worries and fears and it can make us feel hopeless. 

Many people also have the perception that we must function at 100% to be worthy of love and kindness. That being ill somehow makes us feel lesser than.

This mediation welcomes in all our feelings and pains - Allows us to notice that everything always changes - and that we are good enough just the way we are.

We are worthy of love.

About Dani:

The Menopause and Cancer Podcast is hosted by Dani Binnington, menopause guide, patients advocate for people in menopause after a cancer diagnosis, and founder of the online platform Healthy Whole Me. 

There is lots of information out there about the menopause but hardly any if you have had a cancer diagnosis as well. Many people say to me they have no idea what their options are, who to ask for help, and that they feel really isolated in their experiences. 

I started this podcast because there was nothing out there when I was thrown into surgical menopause at the age of 39, which followed on from my cancer diagnosis aged 33.

Through the episodes, I want to create more awareness, share information from our fabulous guest experts, doctors and other specialists in the cancer and menopause field. 

And of course, I will share stories from the people in our community.

So that together we can work towards a better menopause experience. For all of us.

More educated, better informed and less alone.
