Event description


MultiCare- Healthcare Provider Wellness Retreat (May 18-19, 2019)

Offered by Advanced Physician Wellness (APW)


Contact: ddeepmala1129@gmail.com

Recharge and Learn Sustainable Mind-Body Practices

As healthcare providers work tirelessly to improve wellness of their clients, APW invites all the healthcare providers to dedicate a weekend to their personal wellness – renew and recharge by using easy to master mind-body relaxation techniques and mind management tools.

The core of the retreat includes 2 practices that have been sourced from traditional, ancient Indian meditation systems because of their time-tested effectiveness, fast-acting results and the ability to master them quickly

  • SKY (Sudarshan Kriya) -- a mind-body practice that utilizes the innate ability of the breath to trigger an automatic quieting of the mind, leading to a deep experience of meditation—whether you’ve never practiced meditation or have done it for years.

  • EDM (Effortless Deep Meditation) -- an automatic self-transcending practice that brings the stillness of deep meditation effortlessly, without watching or controlling the mind, even for beginners.

Research examining multiple biomarkers of stress indicates adding a combination of SKY and EDM creates rapid movement toward autonomic homeostasis and a physiological shift in the autonomic nervous system promoting the calming parasympathetic system in the body within the first two sessions.

The retreat includes:

  • Deep relaxation using simple Yoga stretches, SKY, EDM and other mind-body practices

  • Heightened clarity and more positive perspectives using evidence-based mind management positive psychology principles

  • Greater awareness and stress management using mindfulness-based principles

  • Improved sleep using special sleep meditation (Yoga Nidra)

  • Learning personal practice that can be easily practiced at home by the participants

  • 16 hours of CME, CNE, CEU
