    Dear Mindful Healthcate Summit : I am grateful to be able to be at all sessions of the 5 day Summit and I have also been listening to and learning the teachings from Grand Master Jheng Yen of Tzu Chi Foundation that the climate is changing and the dilemma is more imminent. As humans , we are interconnected with all living beings on Earth, so we need to seize our time and make every day count to upgrade oneself by altering bad tendencies and when we see others’ suffering, we need to recognize our own blessings as to put in our share effort to help and to save others. That way, we will create the flows of love and compassion for one another and we ourselves will be the greatest beneficiers of the love and help for others in return. Blessings.

    I would like to take a moment to thank the interviewers, Man Bertin, Hani Chaabo, Reena Kotecha, Rheanna Hoffman, Jacob Solomon as well as others I may have missed. You were excellent with the discussions
    Your point in the presentation often allowed for a break especially when I needed to focus on other priorities in the world of the home/office & delivery center here in New York City.

    Thanks Kelly for sharing your knowledge and enthusiasm for this topic. I feel that I have a greater understanding of the difference between compassion and empathy and how both can lead to burnout. I loved the heart-breathing visualization and as a yogi and someone in the fitness and wellness industry can relate to burnout…I think systems need to be repaired, and companies, systems, industry could benefit from mindfulness practices that help us deal with stress, burnout and provide a safe, mentoring environment to work in.

    Hello from Utah, USA. I became certified to teach yoga last year. After losing a 20 yr old son to suicide I began a journey in learning about mindfulness and trying to understand what I was experiencing in my overwhelming pain and sorrow. What I learned and have practiced changed everything for me and I knew I wanted to share it with others who were suffering. I will start teaching next month with an emphasis on meeting ourselves with mindfulness and compassion as we work with grief in the body. What Frank Ostaseski shared really touched my heart. It was filled with so many powerful truths I can learn from and use in my teaching. Thank you for sharing all of these skills and tools with us. Love and light to all, Jill

    All classes are excellent. But I feel one class per day is enough for ruminating and digesting!

    Thank you for making me better equipped as a person and in patient care, with hope and love.

    I really enjoy the balanced lectures. You have managed to give us some theoretical knowledge, some research, some practical information, as well as meditation practice in almost each presentation. This summit exceeds my expectations. Thank you so much.

    I am thoroughly impressed by your thought processing and how ethics, change management, leadership amd many more tenets I am yet to listen to.. are integrated into this holistic summit. It should be shared with all. My intention is to pay it forward so more can benefit from the insight held by just the first speaker I listened to!

    Hello from rural Kentucky! Thank you Rheanna Hoffman and Cynda Hylton Rushton for a very informative and moving session on moral distress and resiliency. I’m not in medical or mental healthcare. But, with friends and colleagues in nursing and meditation instruction, we’re developing a respite program for COVID frontline providers to help with their compassion fatigue and burnout, and what I just learned regarding moral exhaustion and degrading workplace adversity. I would like to know more about how to best help nurses, physicians and their assistants in the presencing of more humane systems that support their well-being while they care for others. Please reach out if you feel moved to do so, as I would like to continue the discussion. I can be reached in my email attached to this message, or through the website of my family’s farm,
