A Well-Being Retreat designed for Healthcare Professionals
October 2-6, 2019 • Santa Fe, NM
Here’s an opportunity to join a small group of healthcare professionals who have a deep desire to unwind the nervous system, learn new tools and methods of self-care while having some fun.
Experience the ultimate combination of cutting edge transformational teachings, breathtaking beauty, peak adventures, and profound personal growth experiences.
Burnout among healthcare professionals runs both broad and deep. Numerous studies in the past decade show that nearly half of all physicians and one-third of nurses report at least some of the symptoms of severe burnout syndrome, if not all of them. The three classic symptoms of burnout are emotional exhaustion (feeling drained and hopeless), depersonalization (becoming detached and uncaring), and reduced accomplishment (feeling as if what you are doing isn’t helpful and doesn’t matter).
What is it about the physician culture that leads to burnout?
[The notion] that physicians are superhuman and that normal human limitations don’t apply to us. The way we trained physicians to do 36 hours on a shift and somehow, we thought we’d be as good in Hour 36 as we were in Hour 1. We know that’s not true for any profession. We also tend to have a culture of invincibility and … a lack of vulnerability with colleagues.
Even if you are not at the point of burnout, physicians and other caregivers are not immune to stress; in fact, rates of stress in healthcare professions are increasing as well. An emerging body of literature and research in neuroplasticity is demonstrating that practices of mindfulness, including meditation, yoga, heart coherence and time in nature, significantly improve feelings of resilience and decrease stress, anxiety, and depression.
Consider the following:
Is there a disconnect between the ideal of the sacred work of caring for other human beings and the actual work you are doing? Do you feel like you just keep giving and giving and can’t possibly do it anymore?
Are you suffering because your work is not what you had hoped or dreamed it would be? Is the work after work coordinating care for more and more complicated patients taking it’s toll on your mental, emotional and physical health?
Are the most important relationships suffering because of your career? Spouse, children, friends, and most importantly, the relationship with yourself?
Do you feel like most of your colleagues are struggling and that no one can see a path to different results?
Are you open to the possibility that you can increase your fulfillment at work and in life, despite the increasing external pressures we face as clinicians?
Do you feel like you need to take a few days to slow down, breathe, smile, and take care of yourself?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, this experience is what you’re looking for.
Imagine living your full potential boldly and loving each moment of your life.
Imagine KNOWING that you are living your sacred purpose, giving your gifts to the world and leaving a lasting legacy.
Imagine your life and work in flow, where your goals, desires, intentions, manifest with grace and ease.
Imagine living a life of true freedom, where you can stand unshakable amidst the chaos around you.
Imagine living a life where inspiration flows through you and you create abundance effortlessly.
You are already doing great things for your community and the world, it’s time to acknowledge it for yourself. I invite you to join us on this paradigm altering journey, Healing the Healer.

Lance Wilson, M.D.
As a physician leader, I’ve spent the last 15 years trying to make things easier for clinicians in order to improve their fulfillment in our sacred calling by improving workflows, and alignment and communication in several organizations. What I have found is that the most important, most meaningful changes that improve long term satisfaction and fulfillment are those changes that each individual makes within themselves.
I have struggled with low job satisfaction, even burnout at times and interpersonal relationships which have suffered because of how I showed up in them. As soon as I stopped blaming what was going on around me and started looking inward, I found sources of suffering that I was creating. When we are unconscious of a belief that may not be serving us, we tend to follow conditioned patterns of thoughts, emotions, behaviors and we continue to get the same results. That is exactly what was happening to me. When I backtracked from the results in my life into my psychological operating system, my core beliefs, I found paths to different outcomes.
You will be guided through experiences of self-discovery to understand how your beliefs and thoughts create emotions and how your unconscious reactions versus conscious responses to those thoughts and emotions influence (actually create) your results. Through awareness and choice, you can create anything that you believe is possible

SEE INSIDE THE EXPERIENCE
La Cienega Valley is a lush oasis within Santa Fe’s high-desert landscape. In fact, ciénega is a Spanish term meaning ‘desert marsh,’ in which slow-moving water flows through dense vegetation – making it an ideal home for a diverse range of plants and wildlife. This rare, natural wetland has numerous artesian springs that drain into two converging creeks that meet the Santa Fe River at the south end of the valley. The Sunrise Springs experience is customized for each guest to create harmony amongst the four aspects of wellbeing: mental, emotional, physical and spiritual.
