Training Courses

I will train your medical professionals to use meditation, breathing and awareness techniques as hands-on practices for patient care and education.

Sample topics

Wendy’s speaking engagements are workshop style, in that they are part lecture and part experiential. There will be some lecture-style presentation always leading into first-hand experience with guided meditation practices, short writing exercises or paired discussions.

Here are some sample topics for grand rounds or workshops that have been well received in past:

    • Visualization practice for learning procedural skills and overcoming real-time adversity
    • Compassion training based on the G.R.A.C.E. model by Roshi Joan Halifax (this can be expanded into a multi-day workshop)
    • Discussion of death and our own view on mortality that can affect patient care
    • The importance of team mentality especially in residency and how we can support each other
    • Recalling our purpose and intention for entering into medical practice as ground for our daily work
    • Burnout and physician suicide awareness


We are always open to discussing the specific needs of your program or department and customize a workshop or lecture for your staff.
