Mindful Medicine’s Retreat for Healthcare Providers is a restorative retreat by healthcare providers for healthcare providers.
Based on the well-established Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course, this is a highly accessible and valuable program for anyone seeking to improve health. Our experience, supported by evidence in the medical literature, is that mindfulness training can significantly improve the quality of life and medical practice of participants.
Our nonresidential, interactive retreat is offered by our highly experienced instructors, who foster an atmosphere of respect and appreciation, and create a space to create connections with other professionals for mutual support. Mindful Medicine is not associated with any healthcare system. It is a safe place to speak freely and be heard by those who share your experiences.
