“Virtue is not left to stand alone. He who practices it will have neighbors.”–Confucius
Our experienced clinicians and instructors can help groups and businesses in wellness care and optimizing professionalism. We specialize in addressing burnout, demoralization and distress, as well as building resilience, energy, creativity, and hope. Our approaches are practical, effective and enjoyable, drawing on the rigor of evidence-based health care and the healing arts of wisdom traditions, customized to your organizational mission and needs. At retreats hosted here at our studio, located in beautiful downtown Iowa City with hotels and restaurants just steps away, or at sites around the country, we bring our fundamental commitment to the existential practices of compassion, courage, and authenticity to your unique objectives and team-building.
This is a small sampling of our customized lecture and workshop topics. We love integrating mind-body and mindfulness teaching, as well as incorporating the humanities including literature, art, film, and music.
