Renewal Retreat for Nurses

Relaxed and Balanced Retreat

To take excellent care of others, it is essential to take care of yourself.
If you work in a stressful environment with constant demands, and are so busy caring for others that you have little or no time for yourself, then this retreat is for you.

At the Renewal Retreat for Nurses, you will:
•  participate in activities that enhance self-renewal and can be used with patients
•  explore breathing techniques to balance the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system and turn off the stress response
•  learn the clinical application of relaxation exercises you can do with your patients that quickly create calm and ease
•  learn the surprising truth of how sugar and fat influence the human brain and body
•  learn an easy technique that stimulates your body meridians to release tensions, refresh your energy and calm your mind
•  discover an easy meditation method to still your mind so you can be present with your patients and be “the eye” in the storm of life
•  re-connect to your passion to serve others

Join us in Paradise Valley for a remarkable weekend of rejuvenation, relaxation and renewal along with education on how to better care for yourself and others.
