The Challenges of Clinical Practice in Turbulent Times

Sunday, March 12, 2017 - 15:00 to 17:00
All day: 


to join fellow members of the IMP community for a conversation about clinical practice in this era of uncertainty and change. This is an opportunity to share with colleagues your personal and professional experiences over the last few months. It is also a time to explore how meditation practice can be a healing resource in the midst of difficulty, fostering not only well­being and sanity, but also equanimity, wise action, and even liberation.

Our intention is to create a space for the IMP community to come together in conversation. Despite being a challenging time for many of us and for our clients, it is also an opportunity for deepening sangha and practice.

While this event is being organized by and for the IMP community, any clinicians with an interest in contemplative practice who share these concerns are invited to participate in the conversation, camaraderie, and professional support. IMP members, colleagues, and friends are welcome. 

NOTE: Attendance is limited to 15 participants.
