During the immersive three-day retreat, participants practice mind-body approaches, such as meditation, journaling, biofeedback, and yoga to realize the benefits (manage stress, and 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. Participants leave with the necessary training, tools, materials, and strategic thinking to help them implement the program in their home institution.
