Healing, Mindfulness and Compassion
UNITING WESTERN & EASTERN APPROACHES TO HEALING
OCTOBER 27 – 29, 2017
(Will be offered again March 23-25, 2018)
Health care professionals are invited to attend the semi-annual integrative medicine and Balint process program which will combine Western medicine perspectives, Balint group process, and the traditional Tibetan practices of Kum Nye yoga and meditation. Attendees will gain an understanding of the complex factors in the provider/patient relationship and the tools necessary to integrate conventional and complementary approaches to patient care.
The Tibetan Aid Project has facilitated the sharing of Buddhist insights and healing techniques for over 40 years. With this integrative approach, consideration is given not only to the body but also the mind. When elements such as empathy and compassion are fully integrated in the therapeutic process there is a boost in healing. Additionally, a natural connection with patients is developed and communication opened. As a result, professionals are more satisfied and effective when they are able to recharge their internal strength, maintain a positive inner glow, and avoid energy drain.
Ratna Ling, the host site, is an upscale retreat facility located in the redwoods of coastal Sonoma County. Accommodations are in luxurious two-bedroom cottages and delicious vegetarian meals are included.
