Mindfulness Practice for Doctors:
a 3-day Experiential Weekend

Medicine is a stressful profession, especially in the current climate of accelerated change. Doctors are expected to provide first class care to patients at all times: but how do we take care of ourselves? Come and think about this mindfully and learn how to practice mindfulness in a calm and relaxed setting. There will be time to talk, walk, reflect, and meditate in beautiful countryside and in good company. All doctors welcome.

Suitable for both beginners and experienced practitioners.

 
Mindfulness Practice - Experiential Weekend for Doctors

Ammerdown – 30.06.17 – 02.07.17

“…the danger is that [people] become identical with their personas—the professor with his textbook, the tenor his voice…”
                                                        CG Jung: Memories, Dreams, Reflections

As doctors, to what extent do we identify with our social roles?  Why do we do this? What impact does over-identification with our social roles have upon us and our patients? What is the role of mindfulness practice in all this?
