Mindfulness for Doctors

This retreat offers doctors from any specialty or grade a chance to practise mindfulness in a group with other doctors and is run by three doctors with a long-standing interest in both mindfulness practice and well-being in doctors. It was developed in response to the understanding of the emotional demands of being a doctor. The retreat takes the form of group discussions and periods of mindfulness practice.
No previous experience of mindfulness is needed; there will be spaces for those who are new to
mindfulness and those who already have some knowledge. Saturday afternoon is set aside for rest and recreation; and there will be plenty of time to enjoy the wonderful grounds of Ammerdown as well as the food! Includes silence overnight. Feedback from previous courses: ‘This is such a friendly group; I really felt relaxed even though I didn’t know anyone and hadn’t practised mindfulness before.’
