Struggling with chronic stress, burnout or overwhelm, and looking to increase resilience and energy?
Feeling challenged to fulfill patients' (and your own) needs?
Experiencing anxiety or depression?
Neglecting your own self-care?
Frustrated from trying (and failing) at mindfulness meditation practices?
Satisfied career-wise, but looking to go from 'successful' to 'exceptional'?
Hoping to achieve a better work-life balance (but too busy to drive to a meditation class)?
Tired of 'waiting for the next step' of your life or career to find happiness?
Craving real change in your life, and willing to make the changes to get it?
Because it maximizes the 'stay and play' function of the parasympathetic nervous system, the REST Technique accesses a uniquely restful state that is up to 5 times more restful than sleep.
You'll always sit comfortably, with your back supported.
The mind has thoughts, just like the heart beats, so you will never be asked to clear your mind or control your thoughts!
You'll learn to become a self-sufficient meditator, without reliance on guided meditation recordings or apps.
You'll learn how to easily fit the meditation into your busy life as a physician, and it'll make you so efficient that you'll get the time back (and then some!).
The meditations are pleasant and easy-to-do, and you'll start noticing benefits quickly (there's NO SUFFERING in the REST Technique!).

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. After several years of teaching meditation to healthcare professionals nationwide in her live courses, Jill used her expertise and experience to adapt the fundamentals of the powerful Conscious Health Meditation practice to create the The Rest Technique Online Course.
Jill strongly believes that there is no 'quick fix'; no singular technique can address all of the physical and emotional challenges of today's society. When she discovered tapping at a conference for women physicians in 2017 and began using it herself, she was amazed at how well it complemented her meditation practice and helped her to let go of long-held limiting beliefs. She became certified in tapping in 2019, and finds tremendous joy facilitating incredible growth and benefits with her tapping clients.
Jill’s 8+ years of practicing and teaching meditation and tapping, combined with the teaching and mentoring skills developed during her academic medical career, her personal experience with burnout, and her intimate understanding of the healthcare system, make her uniquely suited to teach The REST Technique and tapping to healthcare professionals from all fields.
As a nationally-renowned expert in physician wellness, Jill uses meditation and tapping as key tools in her holistic approach to wellness and stress management. In addition to teaching The REST Technique Online course and her live Conscious Health Meditation courses and working one-on-one with tapping clients, Jill has presented on tapping and stress reduction at medical conferences on the regional and national level.

What does REST stand for?
The REST Technique is so effective because it maximizes parasympathetic activity and minimizes sympathetic activity, and in doing so, it is up to 5 times more restful than sleep. The REST acronym emphasizes the deep rest you will achieve during your meditation, and is an intimate part of the technique that you will learn in the course.
Is there a discount available for medical students and residents?
Yes, the sooner you learn the REST Technique, the better (for both you and your career)! If you are a current medical student or resident, you receive 60% off of the course fee. Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your current student ID, and we'll send you a coupon code.
Can I sign up for this course if I am not a doctor?
The short answer: yes.
Here's the longer answer: This course is designed with healthcare professionals, in particular doctors, in mind. However, we also offer a non-CME accredited version of the REST Technique for people who are not in healthcare (you can go check it out at theresttechnique.com)!
If you are not in healthcare, and you wish to take this course, you may do so, with the following caveats: please note that the content is geared towards physicians' (and other clinicians') understanding of some health issues and physiology. In addition, the REST Technique Facebook group is a forum where course participants will be sharing experiences during the course, and this discussion will also be geared towards doctors.
If you are a nurse, PA, NP, PT, OT, dietician, social worker or psychologist, you may also take this course for continuing education credit (just check with your state licensing board to make sure it has reciprocity with the state of IL. This reciprocity is not an issue for CME, which will work in all states).
We do offer a version of this course designed for people outside of healthcare, called 'The REST Technique: Simple, Effective Meditation for the Busy Mind', which is open to EVERYONE, and can be found at theresttechnique.com!
