Mindful Practice in Medicine


Core Workshop


May 10-13, 2023

About Our Online Workshop



A retreat-like workshop. Please join us for a retreat-like online workshop designed to energize your clinical work while helping you find joy and resilience, through honing your self-awareness and deep listening skills that are keys to navigating stressful and demanding situations you face daily. No prior experience is required.

Developed by physicians. This workshop, developed by physicians to help medical practitioners and educators respond to the erosion of joy in their work, provides an experiential and interactive learning environment. Our approach is evidence-based–as it lessens the effects of burnout and improves well-being, engagement with work, and patient-centered compassionate care.

Clarify and focus on your own learning needs. Contemplative practices, dialogues with colleagues and inquiry-oriented group discussions will enhance your ability to focus, connect and communicate with patients and colleagues.

World-wide community. Join physicians, PAs, NPs, and other health professionals from over 20 countries worldwide.

At the conclusion of this activity, you will be able to:

  • Apply self–awareness, and self-monitoring during clinical work and teaching
  • Demonstrate skills in attending to patient’s needs, effective clinical practice, and compassionate care
  • Effectively manage challenges at work and practice ways to attend to your own well-being



Mindful Practice enters its 13th year of offering transformative programs, building resilience, and promoting flourishing for health professionals. We now provide this program in a live online format using state-of-the-art educational technology, where this retreat-like workshop can be experienced without the need for travel. Participants in the online program have described the online experience to be just as intimate, connecting, and life-changing as it has been for the more than 800 physicians, nurses, psychologists and other health professionals who have experienced the program in person.

Here are some comments from previous online workshop participants:

“Being in community with the participants and especially in the small groups/dyads/triads were the most helpful parts of the program. I really had not expected being able to share so deeply with people I had never met.”

"I loved the rich and varied resources of music, intellectual studies, poetry, artwork, and meditation and having the different areas of my brain stimulated. You had a lovely balance of left and right brain activities which served to keep me alert, interested, and endlessly curious to see what was coming next. This vast array was the most helpful for me because I had wondered if sitting in front of a computer so long would fatigue me.”

“I am especially inspired by how well the Zoom format went for something so personal.”

“It is such a privilege to have participated in this class and to be a part of this community. The shedding and growing that occurred, in me personally, and for the whole group, was unexpected.”
