Our HEAL Series explores Zen leadership through the lens of healthcare. You’ll learn how to sustainably thrive and be a force for positive change in your patients, practices and systems.
We train “deep into the bones” how to face some of the most pressing issues for healthcare professionals. These courses apply the tools and “flips” in Zen training to overcome burnout and transform challenges into opportunities. Explore with colleagues how to become an instrument for healing patients and systems alike. We believe everyone in healthcare should take this course.
All Heal Series courses are accredited to provide Continuing Medical Education credits to the healthcare team. We recommend attending the HEAL series with a colleague to make it easier to apply learnings afterwards.
Now more than ever, the systems and people working within healthcare are close to collapse. Only through resilient, agile and wise leadership, can we be the difference we want to make – and that starts with the individual. Focusing on a leadership challenge of your choice, you’ll explore practical ways to reframe challenges, work with paradoxes, influence others and realize goals. You’ll also learn resilience practices, breathing exercises, zazen meditation, ways to manage energy, and how to apply all this to your team or system.
- Find a “new you” capable of thriving in a chaotic system.
- Know where you can make a difference. Reconnect with purpose and reframe challenges into opportunities.
- Learn to shift between four modes of leadership.
- Develop daily resilience practices including breathing exercises and zazen meditation.
- Apply and customise practices and learnings to your workplace.
The next step towards building unshakable resilience. HEAL2 is where we work at removing fear, first in ourselves and then helping others. We’ll trace the roots of fear and share several ways to overcome it, along with skills to resolve conflict, empower others and deepen relationships. You’ll also learn more advanced Zen techniques to work with your “shadow-side resistance” and its connection to fear, and how to “control the riot within” when faced with overwhelming situations.
- Lean into your biggest fears and workplace challenges – and discover how they lose their leverage.
- See conflict in a different light and use it to deepen relationships with colleagues and teams.
- Use multiple perspectives to resolve competing needs without getting stuck.
- Learn techniques to empower others and bring out their best.
- Deepen your Zen training and centeredness – and keep experiencing the results.
Putting it all together. HEAL3 prepares you with the physical condition to face challenging situations, work on a subtler level, and create what you are here to do. We’ll focus on how to sense and seize opportunities, realize a desired future and bring about change. We’ll ask you to come to this final course with a transformation project, then apply all the “flips” and practices you’ve learnt with support from instructors and a peer coaching circle. HEAL3 will bring out your healing presence and the inner power for you to make a difference.
- Seize opportunities and sense the right timing for realizing goals.
- Experience the “dropping away of separateness” and the “bigness of Samadhi” through guided meditations.
- Work through subtle fears that otherwise limit your success.
- Continue to deepen and open through breathing, physical conditioning and zazen meditation.
- Shape the future using a powerful shift in consciousness and a deeper understanding of what holds current issues in place.
