Originating at Georgetown University School of Medicine, this experiential program provides faculty at health professional schools with the training, tools, and strategic thinking necessary to implement the course in Mind-Body Medicine Skills at their institutions.
During a three-day weekend retreat on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, participants will be introduced to meditation, guided imagery, biofeedback, breathing techniques, and other mind-body approaches that can alleviate stress and foster self-awareness and self-care. Participants will experience the power of these approaches first-hand while learning how to lead Mind-Body Medicine Groups for students and residents.
The intensive program includes seven group sessions, several individual activities, short didactic presentations, and daily yoga. Participants are provided with all course materials and guidance to enable them to launch similar programs in their institutions
Led by Adi Haramati, PhD, and Nancy Harazduk, MEd, MSW, the program is modeled on the format they’ve used to train more than 130 faculty at Georgetown University School of Medicine and over 100 faculty from other institutions. The intent is to develop mentoring relationships with each program participant, so faculty members may become agents for lasting change in their own institutions.
Tuition includes course materials, three nights’ lodging, three health-conscious gourmet meals daily, access to workout facilities, pool, and more than 80 acres of gardens and trails.
Enrollment is limited. We strongly encourage you to apply early.
