The system & culture of medicine is in crisis

Half the nation's doctors report feeling emotionally exhausted

The Stanford WellMD model identifies 3 critical areas of need

Culture of Wellness & Efficiency of Practice
Well-being & resiliency is the foundation for all 3
"We know the systems need to change but that won't happen everywhere anytime soon. I believe that when physicans have tools that help support renewal and expand resiliency, they will be empowered and have more energy to help change the systems."
Aditi Dave MD, Wake Forest Baptist Hospital

Transformative high-yield tools to renew and recharge.

INVEST IN YOUR WELL-BEING

INVEST IN YOUR WELL-BEING

Too busy to rest and renew is a common mindset that gives a false impression of higher productivity. Investing time to regularly recharge and build resiliency is made-up in greater productivity, fewer mistakes and the ability to sustain a longer career in medicine.

RESILIENCY ISN'T GAINED FROM A VACATION

A vacation may recharge you for a week but the benefits are not sustained. The practices learned on the APW workshop rejuvenate your system everyday, making you increasingly more resilient over time. The deep rest enhances energy reserves so you have more to draw upon when a crisis must be handled.

REVIEWS

REVIEWS

"We included this program [at MSU] as a way to help residents manage their stress and improve wellness...This is very well received and gets great reviews... I strongly recommend..."
Robert C. Smith, M.D., M.S. MSU Dept. of Medicine

“Learning SKY (practices) was quite straight forward and unexpectedly simple however the benefits were immediate and profound.”
Robert J. Fisher MD Carolina East Medical Center

"I have more energy, I'm better able to manage stress and I can sustain my concentration more easily throughout the day. The SKY practice makes meditation easy and it quickly and effectively settles my mind."

RENEWAL
SUPPORT AFTER THE WORKSHOP
  • Extended guided group sessions provide an extra boost.
  • Trainers are available to answer questions directly.
  • Periodic weekend retreats are offered to immerse in silence and deeper practice for powerful restoration.
This is unlike any other mind-body program.

The practices are mastered in a few days and results are seen immediately. Each practice has it’s own benefits but when done together there is a powerful synergistic effect.

What You Will Learn

The core practices do not require mental effort. They automatically quiet the mind to a deep state of meditative rest, even when the mind is busy. You don't watch thoughts, contemplate, concentrate or hold your focus on anything.
1. Breathing practices (5-15 min./day)
Use anytime to relax, restore energy, or for help sleeping. Powerful primer for meditation.
2. SKY Breathing Meditation (10 min./day)
A unique, breath-based technique that immediately quiets the mind deeply without engaging the mind or using any mental focus at all.
3. Effortless Deep Meditation technique (20 min.)
Ancient method of automatically and effortlessly transcending the busy mind. Quickly master deep meditation without using effort, monitoring or control.
4. Mindfulness Mind Management (apply when desired)
On the workshop you will gain insights into tendencies of the mind to help you consciously re-frame perspectives to greater positivity and improved self-care boundary setting. These conscious efforts are far easier and more productive after the practices have established greater calm and awareness in the mind.
