Mindful Practice® in Medicine Core Workshop: Find Joy and Resilience, and Enhance Quality of Care (February 2022)

A retreat-like workshop

Please join us for our online, retreat-like workshop designed to energize your clinical work while helping you find joy and resilience, through honing your self-awareness and deep listening skills that are keys to navigating stressful and demanding situations you face daily.

Enrollment is limited to 40 participants. No prior experience is required.

Developed by physicians

This online workshop, developed by physicians to help medical practitioners and educators respond to the erosion of joy in their work, provides a creative, online experiential and interactive learning environment. Our approach is evidence based–as it lessens the effects of burnout and improves well-being, engagement with work, and patient-centered compassionate care.

Despite the “virtual” nature of this online program, the actual experience is far from virtual. Rather, the program is dynamic and interactive and participants’ engagement is very tangible and present. We create a learning community using asynchronous multimedia presentations and reflective activities and live (synchronous) interactive large group presentations, paired dialogues, contemplative practices, and small group discussions to provide a fully embodied experience. The online format offers new possibilities for engagement educational and practice settings, time zones and continents, including opportunities for connections with one another beyond the confines of the course.

Learn how to:

  • find meaning in your work
  • be more resilient
  • effectively manage challenges in clinical work
  • listen more deeply
  • improve communication
  • cultivate compassion and gratitude
  • experience clarity and focus
  • become more self-aware
  • be a part of a larger community

Clarify and focus on your own learning needs

Contemplative practices, dialogues with colleagues and inquiry-oriented group discussions will enhance your ability to focus, connect and communicate with patients and colleagues.

World-wide community
