From Burnout to Brilliance Workshop

October 5, 2018 @ 8:00 am - October 7, 2018 @ 5:00 pm


Taking care of people is some of the most rewarding work we do as human beings. When we do it as overworked healthcare professionals, it can burden and exhaust us at profound levels. Studies show that a great many doctors, nurses, and healthcare providers suffer from a jaded perspective, a decreased capacity to feel empathy, and a dwindling sense of professional satisfaction.

How did we get here?

In this weekend retreat, integrative medicine physician Dr. Akil Palanisamy and co-director of the California Center for Functional Medicine Chris Kresser, MS, LAc, examine the root causes of burnout for healthcare practitioners and the ways to overcome them.

Through discussion, writing, creative expression, and artistic activities you will:

  • Rediscover your passion for medicine and reconnect with a sense of meaning and purpose in your work
  • Explore practical steps you can take to reclaim your health and well-being
  • Rediscover important parts of yourself that lack expression and have been neglected in the busyness of life
  • Learn to create a practice that reawakens your sense of energy and vitality in the workplace.

Leave with tools and techniques to create the foundation for healing and transforming yourself, those you care for, and the culture of our healthcare system.
