12th Annual Art of Presence Health Care Renewal Retreat

August 17-23

Assisi, Italy

12th Annual Healthcare Renewal Retreat  Art of Presence – 12th Annual Healthcare Renewal Retreat

Health professionals and care providers from all faiths, beliefs and cultures are invited to participate in an interdisciplinary retreat designed to provide respite and renewal, reflection and nourishment, and to reconnect with their original call to serve in the healthcare field. It provides time and space to immerse oneself in our own spirituality (that may oftentimes seem disconnected from our professional lives), and provide space to reflect on ways to integrate our spirituality into our daily professional lives more intentionally.

Now is your chance to visit a contemplative and beautiful city, visited by millions each year. During this one-of-a-kind retreat, we experience a much-needed pause, and reflect on what gives meaning in our lives. We explore the importance of being present not only with our patients, but with ourselves.

Be engaged in a contemplative week of personal and professional renewal with experienced guides:

Christina Puchalski, M.D., Renowned Healthcare Clinician & Educator
Michael Stillwater, Musical Artist & Educator
Doris Laessar Stillwater, Contemplative Psychotherapist
Edward O'Donnell, Spiritual Director & Educator
