For caregivers, doctors, nurses, yoga teachers, aspiring writers, and anyone interested in personal narrative as a healing path to recovery.

Unlock the power of personal storytelling and compassionate listening to amplify the healing process. This trailblazing program is a full-body and full-spirit immersion with literary lions, innovative medical practitioners, spiritual leaders, and yoga teachers.

Narrative Medicine is an important and expanding new field that recognizes the value of storytelling in the healing path. The goal of this program is to create an inspired, rich, and multidisciplinary experience for everyone on a healing or caregiving trajectory. Immerse yourself in morning talks, afternoon writing groups, and many opportunities to practice yoga, work in groups, and contemplate in nature.

The one-of-a-kind program includes both hands-on techniques for incorporating narrative practices into a clinical setting and transformative experiences for individuals on their own healing journey.
