I met Dr. Jill Wener through the collaborative work I’m doing with my employer, SSM Health, and Dr. Jennifer Wessels, a Vice-President in our Medical Group, who is also in charge of our physician wellness program.
After 10+ years practicing Internal Medicine in a busy urban hospital, Dr. Jill Wener knows firsthand what severe stress and burnout feel like. In the midst of her own burnout, she was introduced to Conscious Health Meditation, and it had a profound effect on her resilience and reactivity. Like many healthcare professionals, Jill was initially skeptical of spiritual practices. However, as she learned the science behind Conscious Health Meditation, she embraced the training and marveled at the results of the practice. After 2 years of advanced coursework, Jill completed her 3-month teacher training in Rishikesh, India in April 2016.
As a Conscious Health Meditation teacher, Jill uses her medical background to help clinicians who are interested in reducing stress and living a life filled with creativity, energy and personal and professional fulfillment. In addition to teaching Conscious Health Meditation, she has presented on stress reduction at medical conferences nationwide. Jill has received tremendous personal benefits from her own meditation practice and finds joy in sharing her passion with others. Jill is currently living and teaching in Atlanta, and she hosts meditation retreats and physician wellness programs around the country.
