What workshop participants are saying
“I found a renewed focus on the value of being authentic in my interactions with patients and colleagues, and how mindfulness practice makes this possible.”
“I learned that there is a whole toolbag of skills that I can utilize… to deal with difficulty, suffering, errors, depression, and anxiety.”
“I have an increased recognition of the importance that my formal mindful practice brings in helping me connect with patients.”
“Connecting with others who are interested in this and having the opportunity to reflect and experience the group meditations was helpful. I hope that I can share these practices widely with my colleagues.”
