Faculty Facilitator Mind-Body Skills Off-site Training Retreats

Adapted from a program implemented via the Institute for Integrative Health, Educating for Enhanced Self-Awareness and Self-Care: An Experiential Training in Mind-Body Medicine, faculty from UC are trained in mind-body skills by internationally-recognized experts to be able to lead student courses at their home institution.

During the immersive three-day retreat, participants practice mind-body approaches, such as meditation, journaling, biofeedback and yoga to realize the benefits (manage stress, foster well-being, among others) through personal experience. Lectures ground the practices in neuroscience and physiology, while experiential sessions demonstrate how to lead mind-body skills groups. Faculty leave with the necessary training, tools, materials, and strategic thinking to help them implement student courses.

Following the retreat, the Mind-Body Skills Program Coordinator supports faculty by aiding in student course scheduling, providing course materials and supplies, and convening monthly faculty connection meetings.

  • 3-day off-site retreat
