THE BIRCHTREE CENTER
The Integrative Healing Arts Program
Session Three: Manifesting the Healing Environment
Carmel Retreat Center
February 25-28, 2010 ~ Mahwah, NJ
The Integrative Healing Arts Program is an opportunity to revitalize your nursing practice and rejuvenate your body, mind
and spirit. You will study with the top faculty in the field. In Session Three we examine the meaning of healing
environments. We deepen our exploration of concepts from the seven core curriculum areas as we place an intentional
focus on defining, re-defining and co-creating healing environments in various health settings. The foundation and
framework for integrating medical music therapy and guided imagery is offered within the context of holistic nursing
practice. Integral with the learning experience is the inclusion of time for inner reflection, relaxation and connection to a
supportive community of nurses. A pre-requisite to Session Three is completion of the Reflective Papers assignment.
Session Three provides 27 contact hours. Participants who wish to achieve a Certificate in Integrative Nursing
can continue by completing Sessions One through Four in subsequent sessions.
The program will be held at Carmel Retreat Center, a 30 acre forested and landscaped country estate that is adjacent to a
wilderness preserve and nestled in the rolling Ramapo Mountains of northern New Jersey. This retreat center provides
quiet serenity and a comfortable, reflective atmosphere. It is 45 minutes from Manhattan and is close to both bus and rail
lines. Massage and yoga will be available. This is a sacred place to truly nurture your body and soul. Give yourself the
opportunity to relax, renew and learn in a peaceful natural environment. Directions will be provided with confirmation letter
upon receipt of registration.
