Faculty workshop: Care for caregivers

October 18, 2019  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Physicians extend great energy and effort as they care for others. To be healthy and successful, they need practices and habits to renew themselves.

Come enjoy a renewing oasis. Experience techniques and strategies you can use every day to help bring more ease and care to your life. These will include gentle active (movement and breath) and reflective practices for the body, mind and heart. Give yourself permission to receive the gift of self-care. Come and take care, so you can give care.


1. Practice multiple body and mind techniques to bring ease, relaxation and calm.
2. Pick at least one technique, and a specific time and place, to bring more care and gentleness to your life.

Join this highly-experiential two-hour workshop! Due to the interactive nature of this session, the maximum capacity will be 24 participants.
