Clinician Retreats are specifically designed for health professionals interested in learning how to incorporate mindfulness into their clinical practice and daily lives. Our retreats offer an annual retreat for health professionals in Far North Queensland and Thailand which offers a variety of activities and new learning opportunities. During the retreat your mindfulness sessions will be guided by one of our trained practitioners through mindfulness based breathing, mindful walking and other mindfulness based strategies for you and your clients.
