One Day Mindfulness Retreat for Physicians
Saturday, May 6, 2017
9:30am – 5:30pm
Still Water Hall, Green Gulch Farm
Mindfulness: A Powerful Response to Difficulty
This retreat introduces mindfulness to physicians who are facing burnout and want to learn a mindfulness-based approach for their own health and wellness, and that of their patients, colleagues, and families. This one-day event will be held at Green Gulch Farm – a picturesque retreat center in Marin County that connects to Muir Beach by a 1.2-mile walking path.
Retreat Day Information
The retreat will include instruction in various mindfulness modalities including sitting meditation, walking meditation, mindfulness yoga (suitable for beginners), the art of mindfulness “in the heat of the moment” and in actual everyday life at work and at home.
Mindfulness is the art of paying attention, on purpose, and moment by moment in a compassionate way. It is an attentional strategy that brings both relaxation and energy to present-moment experiencing – ultimately resulting in a greater sense of control, agency, meaning, and well-being.
There will be ample time for group discussion, and for personal rest and renewal on the extensive Green Gulch grounds and nearby Muir Beach. Coffee, tea, snacks, and a vegetarian lunch are included.
All-inclusive retreat fee is $149
The retreat leaders are David Weinberg and Karin Pfluger of StressCare, and Jack Edelen of Alta Bates Summit Medical Center. Karin and David regularly teach mindfulness courses in the Bay Area. Jack helps lead StressCare retreats for healthcare professionals and actively refers patients to mindfulness courses for their health and well-being.
