Cultivating the Inner Holding Environment:
An Intensive Mindfulness Retreat for Mental Health Professionals

August 5-12, 2017 Taos, New Mexico
Sponsored by Vallecitos Mountain Ranch.

With Bill Morgan, Psy.D., and Susan Morgan, MSN, RN, CS and Ronald Siegel, Psy.D.

By stepping out of everyday life in a retreat environment, we can explore the subtle habits of heart and mind more easily. This retreat will be experience-near, focusing on the development of mindfulness practice and its relevance in our work with others, particularly in the cultivation of accurate empathy and therapeutic presence. There will be daily mindfulness meditation instruction and three to four hours of meditation each day, study modules most afternoons in combination with small group discussion, and individual meetings with teachers.

The rest of the time we will observe silence, including during meals, to facilitate a deeper contemplative experience. This is a rare opportunity to immerse yourself in an exquisite natural environment and work closely with leaders in the growing field of clinical mindfulness meditation and compassion. Every effort will be made by the teachers and staff to give each participant a delightful, educational, retreat experience, so that you can return home with renewed enthusiasm for clinical work and for cultivating mindfulness and compassion in daily life. 

This retreat is limited to 32 participants. 20 CE credits available to psychologists, social workers and licensed mental health counselors.

Mindfulness: Inside and Outside the Clinical Hour
August 21-25, 2017 Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts
Sponsored by Harvard Medical School

This seminar provides an up-to-date review of the theory and practice of mindfulness meditation from its ancient origins to modern brain science and psychotherapy, along with opportunities for participants to cultivate their own personal practice. After reviewing how they work to alleviate psychological distress, we will explore which practices are best suited to different patient populations.

Through lecture, demonstration, Q&A, and experiential exercises, you’ll learn how to use mindfulness practices to help resolve anxiety, depression, stress-related medical disorders, and interpersonal conflicts in both adults and children. Participants with no meditation experience, as well as seasoned practitioners, will find this course helpful both personally and clinically.

You’ll also find that Martha’s Vineyard is a wonderful natural and culinary environment in which to develop and enjoy mindful awareness. 15 CE’s are offered to physicians and most mental health professinals.

The Nature of Mindfulness: Awakening The Senses in Paradise
January 13-20, 2018, Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica
A nature-lovers retreat

With Ronald Siegel, PsyD, Larry Cammarata, PhD, & Linda Cammarata, RN

From the Buddha’s earliest teaching to the wanderings of Zen masters, meditators have appreciated the power of nature to cultivate mindfulness and the understanding of interdependence.

This retreat will awaken your senses and enhance your awareness while surrounded by lush tropical jungle, wildlife, warm ocean waters, and pristine beaches. We’ll enjoy meditation, gentle mindful movement, clinical education, excursions into nature, and delicious cuisine, all within a beautiful eco-lodge in the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica, where sparkling ocean meets verdant jungle to provide a safe and nurturing container for our work and play.

This will be an intimate trip with ample opportunities to reflect on our experiences together as well as to explore their clinical implications.

Enrollment is limited.  23 CEs are offered for most psychologists, social workers, nurses, and licensed mental health counselors; 7.5 for massage therapists.
