Contemplative Care is a dimension of healthcare practice that comes out of the great tradition of contemplative practice which is both ancient and universal. Contemplative Care enables the practitioner to develop better self-care, self-knowledge, inner reflection and intuition that informs their healthcare practice, and enlivens their personal presence with the patient.
In this two day seminar speakers from across the healthcare spectrum will dialogue with participants on the many ways Contemplative Care can be used to benefit both practitioner and patient alike.
