Join sought after Buddhist mindfulness teacher Dr. Stephen Dansiger, PsyD, LMFT, Senior Faculty at the Institute for Creative Mindfulness and EMDRIA Approved Consultant and Trainer, as he leads you through a day-long mindfulness retreat to bolster your own mindfulness practice, learn how to bring mindfulness into your EMDR work with clients, and strengthen your resilience to compassion fatigue.

Based on the Four Foundations of Mindfulness as well as the principles and practices outlined in the book Clinical Dharma by Dr. Dansiger, this retreat will help you improve your personal feeling of well-being, improve your skills and finesse as an EMDR practitioner, and help you toward working with EMDR Therapy as a complete mindfulness based psychotherapy, whether in an agency or private practice.
