RISHI Clinician Well-Being Retreat

October 18, 2019 @ 9:00 am - October 19, 2019 @ 4:30 pm


TITLE: The Wounded Healer: Exploring Compassion & Empathy for Self and Others in Health Care

DATE: October 18-19, 2019

LOCATION:  Cedarbrook Lodge, 18525 36th Avenue South Seattle, WA 98188 

As health care professionals we are all wounded people, whether physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually.  Dr. Remen suggests “it is our woundedness that teaches us to be gentle with the wounds of others, to trust the natural and mysterious process of healing and to develop an innate compassion and empathy for others, so that those in pain are not alone when they are with us, and know that they are safe with us.  Our wounds do not diminish us, they make us trustworthy.”  This workshop offers an opportunity to reflect on the Wounded Healer archetype, Second Victim Syndrome, the impact of Imposter Syndrome in clinician well-being, and nurturing our resiliency.

Are you seeking reflection and renewal in your professional and personal life?

If so, please join us for an incredibly enriching experience! This 2 day workshop will draw on the award-winning discovery model methods of the Remen Institute for the Study of Health and Illness (RISHI) offering nourishment and self-care for healthcare professionals.
