Managing Stress and Building Connections for Success: Three Day Stress Reduction Wellness Course for Mental Health Professionals


We live in a complex and changing world with increasing demands and expectations of mental healthprofessionals. It is widely recognized that mental health professionals make a key difference in the lives of others. They put other’s needs before their own; hence they become vulnerable to everyday stresses.

We know they are passionate about their work still, they are stressing out, burning out, and turning over in their jobs at alarming rates. Every day, science reveals more about the impact of stress on one’s lives as a primary cause of illness, low performance, depression, and reduced efficacy.

  • Perform better when your energy is renewed, stress is reduced, and the mind is refreshed

What is SKY?

SKY is rhythmic breathing based meditation that has been reported to bring immediate positive shifts in one’s energy, clarity, and state of mind. Breathing meditation settles the mind into deep meditation by
using the breath’s built-in ability to quiet the mind easily and naturally, so you slip into deep meditation without thinking about it. You don’t have to focus, clear your mind or watch your thoughts.
