The American Meditation Institute (AMI) will host its 10th annual comprehensive training in Yoga Science as holistic mind/body medicine conference October 23-27, 2018 at the Cranwell Resort and Spa in Lenox, Massachusetts. This 32 credit CME training, which is accredited by the American Medical Association, will provide a proven curriculum that transforms the energy of stress, and furnish each attendee a set of tools and resources necessary for relieving and preventing burnout.
In addition to their enormous professional responsibilities, increasing numbers of physicians today are debilitatingly burdened with overwork, extreme stress, anxiety, and even “compassion fatigue.” According to the “2018 Medscape National Physician Burnout & Depression Report,” 42% of all physician respondents reported feeling burnout, and 15% admitted to experiencing either clinical (severe) or colloquial (“feeling down”) forms of depression. Taught by a distinguished faculty, this CME conference is a leading-edge program that presents practical and effective tools to aid physicians in bringing back the joy of practicing medicine, achieving personal and professional fulfillment, and providing more compassionate and insightful care to patients.
According to AMI founder Leonard Perlmutter, “By practicing the scientific meditation techniques taught at this year’s conference, health care providers will learn how to construct a practical, bridge between their own inner, intuitive wisdom and their actions in the world. This bridge between the inner mental world and the outer world of action empowers us to coordinate our human assets in ways that enable us to experience healthy, creative, loving, nurturing and rewarding relationships in our work and at home.”
In support of The American Meditation Institute’s initial continuing medical education accreditation for physicians (through the Albany Medical College), AMI conducted a 2008-09 retrospective case study of participants who completed Leonard Perlmutter’s unique curriculum. The findings included these positive, reproducible, long-term health-promoting changes: significant reductions in stress and fear, decreased anxiety and depression, lowered blood pressure, lowered heart rate, improved restorative sleep, improved energy levels, increased creative capacity, diminishment of migraine headaches, elimination of irritable bowel syndrome, enhanced happiness and optimism, reduced cholesterol levels, diminished or extinguished acute and chronic pain, weight loss and increased breathing capacity.
The 32-CME physician conference, to be held at the Cranwell Resort and Spa in Lenox, Massachusetts brings together an impressive faculty of distinguished experts who will present lectures and provide practicums on meditation, diaphragmatic breathing, mantra science, Yoga psychology, mind function optimization, trauma and PTSD, neuroplasticity, an understanding of the chakra system as a diagnostic tool, nutrition, functional medicine, epigenomics, ayurveda, easy-gentle yoga and lymph system detoxification.
Noted physicians Mehmet Oz (Dr. Oz), Dean Ornish, Bernie Siegel and Larry Dossey have endorsed Mr. Perlmutter’s ground-breaking treatise, which serves as the primary curriculum for the conference. According to recent conference attendee Pamela Shervanick MD, Psychiatry, “Life changing! Everyone in every facet of life should experience this conference. I’m so grateful for you and your institution and all involved for bringing truth to doctors with love and compassion. This is a light the world needs to see.”
