Workshops

We offer full-day, half-day, and 2-hour workshops and seminars for people living with pain as well as for practitioners who work with people living with pain.

For people living with pain

Our peer-to-peer workshops for people living with pain are based on the same concepts as our retreats and are customized to meet the needs of each unique group.  They have been developed to help people make sense of pain through experiential learning. We provide pain education and resources and practice evidence-based living well strategies. We aim to empower people with knowledge, skills and support so they can live valued, meaningful, purposeful, active lives while also honoring their limitations. We touch upon pain science, mindfulness, gentle movement, connection and creativity.

As important as the information and skills learned, though, is our emphasis on building a community of people who understand, encourage and support one another long after the workshop is over. Our online community is available to all participants for life, where they can stay in contact with one another through discussion forums and continue to receive resources, education, support and encouragement from EPIc.

For practitioners

Our customized practitioner workshops are developed to present and discuss pain science through a lived experience lens, discuss language and communication in the patient-practitioner relationship, and identify barriers to treatment and work together to come up with better ways forward for patients and practitioners alike. We also practice evidence-based living well strategies so that practitioners to help health providers take care of themselves as they care for others.
