Green Gulch Farm, Muir Beach, CA
Meditation and Stress Reduction Practices
Build Resilience and Learn Tools to use during Busy Work Day
Increase Physician/Clinician Well-Being

       Mindfulness is defined as “the non-Judgmental awareness of the present moment.” It is the art of paying attention in a compassionate way, a strategy that brings both relaxation and energy leading to a greater sense of control, agency, meaning, and Well-Being.

        The retreat will provide teaching of the forms of meditation shown by meta-analytic research efforts to have the most benefits. Attendees will be able to teach Mindfulness techniques to others such as partners, colleagues and patients. Attendees will directly experience the benefits of Meditation during the retreat and be able to employ them daily at work.

     The purpose of the retreat is to introduce mindfulness to physicians who are facing burnout, who want to learn this approach for their own health, and for greater balance in their relationships with colleagues, patients, and families. The retreat will be held at Green Gulch Farm, a gorgeous retreat center in Marin County adjacent to Muir Beach.

  • Proven techniques based in Positive Psychology, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Meditation
  • Practice of sitting and walking meditation, mindful yoga, and body scan
  • Group discussion on ways to incorporate mindfulness in the Clinic or Hospital setting
