Healthcare Professional Fellowships for 2016

Against the Stream is honored to participate in the Hemera Foundation‘s Contemplative Fellowship for Healthcare Professionals program (CFHP). This program makes it possible for full-time healthcare professionals, who are new to retreat practice, to attend retreats when they might not otherwise have the resources to do so.

To be eligible for support, applicants must be employed full-time in a healthcare field, working primarily with patients/clients or overseeing other healthcare professionals. Additionally, applicants must never have attended a meditation retreat longer than a weekend.

The CFHP program aims to support healthcare professionals through the deep contemplative practices taught, developed and strengthened on retreat. Hemera Fellowships will be available for all Against the Stream retreats in 2016.

All those eligible for a CFHP will be offered 100% funding for their first retreat as a fellow.  If you can comfortably pay for any portion of the retreat yourself, you are welcome to do so, as this will allow funding to be spread among more fellows.
