The Doctor's Lounge

Reconnect with yourself and your colleagues

It is no secret that the medical profession is stressed and overwhelmed. We need to care for ourselves as we care for others. Book the afternoon off and come for retreat with your clinic! Take the opportunity to rest and gain skills to help cope with burnout and empathic distress. 


This 3-hour retreat will allow you and your colleagues to release stress, rest and revitalize! We will:


  • Review the factors that contribute to Burnout

  • Mindfully move to understand where we hold stress

  • Experience the Relaxation Response and other techniques to release stress

  • Practice Self-Compassion meditations to restore ourselves

  • Learn how the practice of Compassionate Listening can help us provide care to our patients, while soothing our own Empathic Distress and Prevent Burnout. 

The program can also be tailored to meet your clinic’s needs. Programs can also be run in conjunction with other clinics to better suit your clinic’s coverage.


Cost: $250/per person

I  wish to acknowledge this land on which the my clinic operates. For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and I am  grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
