Mindful Medicine’s All Healthcare Providers Retreat is a 3-day, in-person workshop. We are excited to bring you the best of evidence-based mindfulness training, specifically designed 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.
