Through Our Own Eyes: A Retreat For and By Women Physicians

Oct 01 - 06, 2017 Begins in 1 month
with Leslie Waters & Ligia Giese

This is our twelfth meeting of women physicians since 1997. In a community of peers and colleagues, we will reflect deeply on our personal and professional lives, encourage a better balance of work and play, and support each other in our evolution as healers. Our theme for this conference is Healthy Body, Open Mind: Unleashing Your Creativity.
Each day participants will experience these activities:
· Facilitated small-group seminars to explore the creativity and joy, as well as the grief and traumas, of medical training and practice



A global network of seekers devoted to the belief that we are all capable of the extraordinary.
