Mindful Healing for Healers (CEU pending)~ Retreat Scholarship Eligible

with Dr. Sonja Williams MD and Dr. Maureen Hall

September 24 - 27, 2020

This is a retreat designed to further mindful practice of healthcare providers and empower them for improved resilience in a changing healthcare industry. With increasing rates of suicide and burnout amongst our healthcare providers learning new and innovative ways to sustain and enliven our healing practices is so vital.

The goal of this retreat is to teach concrete sustainable techniques to improve presence and stability with our clients in the midst of stress and increasing demands of the industry.

Regardless of the length of practice each provider has experienced, invigorating our compassionate intention for healing of others further invigorates ourselves.

The purpose of this retreat is to provide practices and trainings we can integrate into our daily lives that will, over time, allow us to live more fully from a place of compassionate intention not only for ourselves and our clients, but for our respective healthcare fields and environments as well. This is something many of us may have lost in the business of medicine, but it is something we can regain or develop.

Join us and become a stable compassionate force for positive change within your healing practice.
