Mindfulness: The Art and Science of Well-Being
Speaker Phil Chard will join our conference in 2020 to present on mindfulness. Many caregivers struggle with chronic stress, burnout, compassion fatigue and poor self-care. Collectively, these challenges undermine emotional well-being, relationships, life satisfaction and, too often, our sense of meaning and purpose. Recent behavioral and neuroscience research has identified mindfulness as a critical attribute for optimizing well-being, increasing emotional intelligence and cultivating spiritual renewal. We will examine specific, actionable approaches to create and sustain a healthy mind and spirit through mindfulness and other applied contemplative practices.
