Tigerlily Foundation’s Soul Peace Inner Reality Transformed (SPIRIT) Program’s is focused on providing young women diagnosed with breast cancer with transformative spiritual resources, that support holistic healing, provide inner peace, and foster deeper relationship with their Higher Power – and transformation – during and after breast cancer.This program will eventually offer a variety of spiritual resources targeting various belief systems. The goal is to give young breast cancer patients a foundation of faith, belief, love and deep gratitude that surpasses their physical experience. At its core, the SPIRIT program is centered on LOVE.
While many advances have been made in terms of treating breast cancer, there is still a need to treat the mind and spirit, as well as a need to improve the relationship between patients and healthcare providers. After a diagnosis of breast cancer, there is an immediate focus on your treatment plan, and often this does not include administering to the patient’s mind, spirit and soul. Integrating spirituality into your treatment plan addresses every part of you, and can offer many benefits during your treatment. It is important to note that spirituality differs from religion. While spirituality is defined as the expression or experience of the sacred, the individual search for meaning, the belief in transcendence or belief in a power larger than one’s own existence; religion is connected to an organized system or group of practices and beliefs in which people engage. Some people are connected to a religious institution, and others can be spiritual, but not religious.

Yoga is an ancient practice and philosophy rooted in Indian traditions. The word “yoga” comes from the Sanskrit word “yuj” which means to yolk, or to bind. Yoga practices such as pranayama (breathing), asana (postures), and dhyana (meditation) are some tools that are used to yoke the outer self to the inner being, the capital ‘S’ Self.
