CREATING MINDFUL HEALTHCARE

Our goal is to integrate a culture of mindfulness within healthcare-focused organizations by offering training for patients, employees, staff, and medical professionals. We assist both service providers and patients with science-based mind-body practices that support healing, relaxation and pain management.

PROGRAM OFFERINGS

We partner with hospital communities to create custom programming that results in greater health for both patients and healthcare providers. Program options for patients include weekly drop-in meditation, one-on-one patient instruction, and family training. In each of these programs, our experienced teachers will lead guided meditations with step-by-step instruction focused on different techniques including visualization, breath work, and affirmation; all with the goal of aiding in stress reduction and promoting healing. In addition, we offer a six-week training program tailored to meet the unique challenges faced by healthcare providers. This program introduces caregivers to the benefits of mindfulness and teaches tools and techniques to cultivate relaxation, access inner calm, which helps with more insightful decision-making and ultimately establish deeper connections with the patients in their care.

Practitioner Programs

Medical practitioners, much like patients, are susceptible to great stress based on the gravity of their work. Our six-week mindfulness training program is tailored to meet the unique challenges faced by healthcare providers. This program introduces caregivers to the benefits of mindfulness and teaches tools and techniques to cultivate relaxation and access their inner calm. By practicing stress-relief practitioners are prone to more insightful decision-making and even establish deeper connections with the patients in their care.

Patient Programs

Patients bear many burdens while receiving treatment, and often times these burdens create stress that detracts from the healing process. Our patient programs work to alleviate this stress. The programs include weekly drop-in meditation, one-on-one patient instruction, and family training. In each of these programs, our experienced teachers will introduce mindfulness concepts and lead guided meditations with step-by-step instruction focused on different techniques including visualization, breathwork, and affirmation to reduce stress and promote healing.

TESTIMONIALS

 As an Emergency Physician for over 30 years, I experienced a unique type of chaos firsthand. I had no control over what Emergency I was presented with or the volume in terms of patients per hour.  Through meditation and learning the gift of mindfulness I learned how to be the calm in the storm. Delivering care in the Emergency Department is really a team effort.  I greatly benefited from my experience with a mindfulness practice as I was able to use this skill to be a calm strong Physician leader and guide those who were assisting me to help our patients in the most beneficial manner. In addition, I was able to hear my patient’s needs, which helped me guide them in their healing process. I have discovered through my own personal experience the numerous benefits of mindfulness practice, which includes stress reduction, great clarity of focus, and being present for what my patients most need, an intelligent and compassionate healer.
