Physician Retreats

Build the strength you need to break through the vortex of burnout and get to where you want to be with an immersive weekend mindfulness-based retreat designed to help you renew and recharge.

What is a Mindfulness-based Physician Resilience Retreat?

This immersive, one-of-a-kind experience for physicians only is designed to help you break free of the demands of your medical practice and help you reconnect with the most important person in your life: yes, that’s you.

By disconnecting from your current environment, you can achieve a sense of clarity in your life and work. This retreat not only allows you to achieve greater perspective, but will provide you with the necessary tools to take charge of your career. Many studies have shown that mindfulness can have a significant impact in mitigating physician burnout. You’ll join a group of like-minded colleagues from around the country, and create a roadmap for success with our expert team. You can unwind in the hot tub, go on a ¾-mile stroll to the ocean, and enjoy delicious chef-made healthy food. All you have to do is show up!

Every step of this retreat has been created to give you the peace of mind of knowing you’re back on the right track thanks to an experience designed to tap into a part of you that has been neglected, ignored, and unsupported. You’ll be treated to a proven, data-driven curriculum of reflection, mindfulness exercises, and group coaching that will leave you feeling centered and focused once again.

Why should I participate in a Mindfulness-based Physician Resilience Retreat?

Participating in a weekend retreat gives you the opportunity to disconnect and start anew. In this uplifting, energizing and inspiring weekend, you’ll be with a group of physicians who share your experiences and hardships, and wholeheartedly understand your day-to-day struggles. Moreover, you’ll be learning skills that you can take back to work, that will help you regain the balance you’ve been longing for.

By combining strengths-based group coaching exercises and discussions, mindfulness exercises, Appreciative Inquiry, and personal reflection at this Physician Mindfulness Retreat you’ll learn how to:

  • Spend more time “being” as opposed to “doing”
  • Cure the Imposter Syndrome once and for all
  • Identify and shift limiting beliefs that contribute to burnout
  • Stay out of the vortex of negativity and cultivate positive emotions
  • Shift your patterns of reactivity
  • Prioritize care for yourself
  • Develop the muscle of self-compassion, critical for building resilience
  • Enhance your efficiency by focusing exactly where you want to focus
  • Implement practical mindfulness exercises seamlessly into your day

What clients are saying about their physician retreat experience

“After practicing Emergency Medicine for 12 years, I was completely burned out, experiencing profound dread prior to every shift, and a major sense of frustration. After working with Gail, my mind is more at ease while at work and the angst that I experienced beforehand has begun to fade. I now have a restored sense of what I want for myself, my family and my career in medicine going forward. I owe Gail my piece of mind and will forever be indebted to her.”

–Emergency physician

“I’ve tried many things to manage long-standing anxiety, reactivity, and self-criticism. From a very insightful and empathetic stance, Gail’s mindfulness coaching has helped me reshape how I approach work and life, utilizing concrete mindfulness tools to keep me grounded, less anxious, and with a whole new level of clarity and sense of control. I feel so much happier and less reactive at work. With Gail’s guidance, I’m living more and more as the best possible me.”

Is a Mindfulness-based Physician Retreat right for me?

Is the life you’re living today what you were expecting after medical school? You knew it would be hard, but perhaps you never imagined feeling the way you do right now:

  • Exhausted and on the verge of burnout
  • Unable to see a light at the end of the tunnel
  • Burning the candle at both ends, beholden to the demands of your practice and the EMR
  • Frustrated with feeling like you’ve lost control of work-life balance
  • Tired of feeling sluggish, drained, and unsure how you’ll make it through another day
  • Unsure where your enthusiasm for life has gone and if it will come back
  • Unable to focus or concentrate due to the constant rumination and mental chatter

If any of these statements ring true, you’ve come to the right place. This retreat is designed for high performing physicians who are tired of feeling stuck in their careers and are ready to break through the challenges.

You don’t need any previous experience to benefit from mindfulness. Whether you’re a beginner or an advanced practitioner, you will find yourself at home at our retreat and you will gain many useful take-aways.

“I came to Gail after realizing that my old ways of coping no longer worked as well as I wanted. From the start, Gail’s supportive and empathetic stance helped me see that I can cope despite the many stressors of practice. She brings much insight, and the multiple mindfulness tools we utilize have expanded my awareness and perspective. I am now more patient with staff, less judgmental, and much less reactive. I feel a sense of empowerment and success at handling the challenges. I am very grateful to Gail.”

– Internist

“Working with Gail has been the best decision I made since deciding to go into medicine. In the summer of 2016 I felt burnt out and overwhelmed.  Gail helped me understand the underlying causes and align my priorities, transforming my professional and social life. Now I have more free time with my family while still maintaining my salary. Gail even helped me secure a significant raise! Most importantly, I now feel better prepared to handle any new challenges that will come in the future. I can’t thank Gail enough.”
