About This Event

Maintaining resiliency when working in healthcare is a challenge. Ultimate solutions will require collaborative efforts by all stakeholders. Healthcare providers can incorporate daily practices that provide significant mental and physical renewal. With intervals of renewal productivity increases, mistakes decrease and wellness improves.

Research examining multiple biomarkers of stress indicates adding a combination of SKY Breathing Meditation and Effortless Deep Meditation creates rapid movement toward autonomic homeostasis and a physiologic shift in the autonomic nervous system promoting parasympathetic arousal within the first two sessions.

Sustaining a practice requires tools that are easily mastered, provide high-yield results and take minimal time. The APW program provides those tools. Join us for this important event to learn best mind-body practices for wellness.

The APW program targets all 4 drivers of resiliency:

Energy renewal



Emotion regulation

The core of the training includes the unique SKY breathwork practice and Effortless Deep Meditation technique (EDM). SKY breathwork is an advanced breath-based meditative tool (body-breath driven), while EDM is an automatic self-transcending method to meditation. These two practices have been sourced from traditional, ancient Indian meditation systems because of their time-tested effectiveness, fast-acting results and the ability to master them quickly.

The training includes:

SKY breathwork practice

Effortless Deep Meditation technique (EDM)

Evidence based mind management principles used in positive psychology.

Mindfulness based principles for greater awareness and stress management.

Techniques to combat sleep difficulties.

Narrative medicine.

Belongingness exercises to develop stronger peer support.

Short form yoga postures.
