Mindful Practice for Healthcare Professionals: A Contemplative Approach to Engagement and Resilience

  • Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Enhance your well-being, build resilience, and address burnout with
a mindfulness-based approach that includes meditation, narrative medicine, and appreciative inquiry. This embodied practice includes building awareness of and giving attention to cognitive, emotional, and somatic aspects of experience, weaving them into contemplative movement and reflection. This program includes both didactic and discussion elements, and is built on a base of published, empirical evidence that has demonstrated improvements in burnout levels, physical and mental well-being, and relationships relating to patient care.

You receive an overview of mindful practice and the evidence of
its effectiveness, and explore real-life challenges facing healthcare professionals, through sharing clinical narratives related to the themes of burnout, suffering, grief, errors, resilience, and teamwork. Mick Krasner and Ron Epstein also provide references and guided meditation practices for home use and further exploration.
