About This Event
Increasingly, Copper Beech Institute is being called upon to meet the urgent challenges in healthcare— rising stress, disconnection and distraction, and burnout and compassion fatigue to name a few. Copper Beech Institute works with organizations and practitioners to develop teams and cultures who are happier, more focused, emotionally regulated, and less affected by stress. Evidence from now thousands of studies shows how mindfulness in healthcare is directly correlated to decreased stress and pain, fewer accidents and incidents, and a more engaged, connected environment.
Our expert mindfulness teacher will share some of the cutting-edge neuroscience and guide you in exploring how mindfulness and it’s many approaches to practice can transform the stress, chaos and conflicts into opportunities for connection, creativity and deeper wellbeing. Caregiving does not need to be disheartening and burdensome, but can be uplifting and gratifying as we practice healing with our colleagues and patients.
This lively session will include evidence-based teaching, guided exercises, conversation, storytelling and laughter, as well as clear, simple skills and practices that can be applied right away.

The Living Fully with Fear course with Amanda Votto was an incredible experience. I was able to connect with my emotions, dig deep and find what was underneath those emotions, and find comfort within myself and from the shared experiences of the others in the class. I found the practices to be extremely helpful and at times challenging (in a good way). And overall, Amanda did a great job of putting everything into context and explaining how we can relate to fear and tap into a more compassionate part of ourselves. I do wish it had been longer than four weeks. It was a lot of material to cover, and there was a lot to explore and work through. Perhaps Copper Beech might consider extending these online courses to be six or eight week experiences. Even so, I am truly grateful for the opportunity and for all that I gained from this class. Thank you to Amanda and to Copper Beech!

As always, a delightful evening!. Thoughts: 1. May want to publish an agenda in future. Not wise to be fashionably late. Reports were that the event was in full swing at 6:30 PM and 6:45 arrival felt like we were catching up. 2. Would be wise to provide the wifi information so everyone could connect for the text fundraiser. Verizon worked but several people near me said that they could not connect using ATT. The wifi would allow everyone to connect See you next year!!

The Copper Beech Institute offers a wide variety of courses, meditations, workshops and is housed on a beautiful peace of property. I enjoy the Wednesday Candlelight Meditation as a group or 30-40 of us meet to share this mindful experience and are led by the incredible Miranda who always gives a talk that seems to hit home. This place is filled with such love and kindness. Go check it out!
