Featuring thought leaders in health and spiritual care and groundbreaking community organizers, this singular event offers an exceptional opportunity to learn from and connect with individuals who are at the forefront of healthcare innovation.
Through keynote addresses, experiential learning, workshops, and conversation, you will gain insight into best practices and developing expertise. You will learn new ways to meet the challenges of our rapidly changing and increasingly strained healthcare system, sharpen your caregiving skills, find equilibrium, and stay resilient. Through this work you will contribute to the evolution of effective relationship-centered care.
NYZCCC’s pioneering work — to transform the culture of care through contemplative practice, meeting illness, aging, and death with compassion and wisdom — shapes what you will experience at this symposium.
“The symposium is a powerful way for all of us to benefit from NYZCCC’s experience and expertise and leave better equipped to carry out and enjoy the work we do.” —Caitlin Etsudo McElroy-Cox, Nurse Practitioner
Keynote speakers include Amy Berman, Dr. Ira Byock, Jasmine Hill, Sebene Selassie, Sensei Robert Chodo Campbell, Sensei Koshin Paley Ellison, and Frank Ostaseski.
As part of the 2018 Symposium, Tony Award-winning playwright, activist, and author of The Vagina Monologues, Eve Ensler will perform a special reading of her work and Sound Practitioner Michelle Pirrett will be performing and playing her singing bowls.
