Transforming the Personal and Professional Stresses of Medical Practice

As we learn to face and heal our stress and pain more effectively, we can and will better support our patients to face and heal theirs. We'll discuss and share the challenges, difficulties and opportunities inherent in being present with another human being who is experiencing pain and distress, our desire and effort to be of service, and the importance of being present with ourselves and our own pain. We'll explore and practice mindfulness, cultivating healing intentions and qualities of being, unconditional presence, compassion and mindful empathy to enhance the therapeutic relationship and the healing process. We'll listen, be present, give space, reflect, and learn from each other as we share and be with ourselves and our individual and collective stress and pain. This practical and experiential session will combine lecture, discussion, group sharing, and guided meditations.
