Through Our Own Eyes: A Retreat For and By Women Physicians

Starts October 1, 2017
Ends October 6, 2017

12:00pm - 12:00pm

Esalen Institute, 55000 CA-1, Big Sur, CA 93920


This is our twelfth meeting of women physicians since 1997. In a community of peers and colleagues, we will reflect deeply on our personal and professional lives, encourage a better balance of work and play, and support each other in our evolution as healers. Our theme for this conference is Healthy Body, Open Mind: Unleashing Your Creativity.

Each day participants will experience these activities:

· Facilitated small-group seminars to explore the creativity and joy, as well as the grief and traumas, of medical training and practice

· Exploration of self-care strategies, work-life balance, and effective personal and career transitions

· Open time to pursue activities that renew your vitality and creativity

Bring your journal, your watercolors, sunglasses, and a great book! We encourage you to attend with a colleague or friend from medical school, residency, or your community.

Bella will be instrumental in offering creative ways to move the didactic learning into the realms of embodiment.  She will be involved in the opening and closing rituals; integrative work with small groups; early morning movement sessions of yoga and/or dance; and a dedicated self-care module using the rollers and balls for release.

Note: This workshop will offer Category I Continuing Medical Education credit. All participants must be physicians (MDs or DOs).
