Join us in beautiful Brentwood Bay, BC for this Foundations workshop which explores the theory and practice of mindfulness and meditation for physicians and for their partners/spouses. We will explore the unique challenges of medicine and learn tools of stress management, communication and self care to bring into our personal and professional lives. Partners and spouses are welcome to attend all of the sessions in order to share the understanding of these challenges and to share in the development of mindfulness tools.
The objectives of this workshop include:
1)To understand the definition of mindfulness and how its formal and informal practice can reduce suffering in ourselves, in our relationships, and in our patients.
2) To understand the current clinical and neuroscientific evidence of mindfulness in relation to anxiety disorders, depression, chronic pain and other common clinical conditions
3) To explore the epidemic of stress, particularly in relation to the unique challenges and opportunities of being a physician
4) To learn and practice the application of mindfulness skills such as the body scan, three minute breathing space, walking meditation and mindfulness meditation on the breath for use in personal and clinical practice
