AS Retreat Adv

Veterinary Mind/Body Wellness Retreat

Allen M. Schoen, DVM, MS, Phd (Hon), CVA

This retreat/workshop is a warm invitation to your inner self to be immersed in a healing environment with kindred spirits, choosing to take time to love and nurture yourself and to reflect on our veterinary and personal journeys.  Initially there will be opportunities to learn and experience various aspects of the latest in science based mind/body approaches to help us care for ourselves, our families, staff, colleagues, patients, clients and all beings.


This two-day retreat is a co-creative experience, where we will have time and space to explore all the challenges and opportunities we share on our veterinary journeys.   An ideal weekend to prepare yourself for the IVAS Congress in Cairns.


The weekend will be divided between four 3 hour sessions, each having a one hour lecture focusing on the challenges of our profession including compassion fatigue and burnout, as well as exploring the multitude of neuroscience based self-health care solutions and approaches to these issues.  Following the lecture, there will be time for group dialogue, then dividing up into dyads (one on one) for individual processing and practicing the science based techniques with each other and then coming together again for final discussions on the integration of the sessions topics and experiences.


We will review first aid mind/body medicine to long term visionary solutions that you can immediately integrate into your practice and your life.   There will be time for yoga, experiencing various meditation techniques, breathwork, relaxation techniques as well as rejuvenative, contemplative and fun times in the abundance of the surrounding natural beauty of where the rain forest meets the Great Barrier Reef.  There will also be time for self-nurturing in the relaxing spa and reflection in the magical surroundings of the Reef House at Palm Cove, situated directly opposite the beautiful Palm Cove beach, 30 minutes north of Cairns, Queensland.


We will also explore new visions of where we can all go in the 21st century as healers and how we can co-creatively be of further benefit to all beings in our lives as well as the world.


We look forward to sharing this experiential magical, healing and nurturing retreat with you, our kindred spirits.  You are welcome to bring along your partner, veterinary nurse or special friend who may also benefit from this
