A Reason To Take Time For Myself

Dr. Tiffany Randolph, Cardiologist, Raleigh, NC

"The course allowed me to let go of my preconceived ideas about meditation and people who meditate. I am increasingly comfortable with the practice- it gives me a reason/prescription to take time for myself. I am sure that I will continue to grow but I am already starting to feel the effects. The world will go on if I take time for myself!"

The REST Technique is a powerful, easy to do meditation practice that Dr. Jill Wener has adapted from her internationally-renowned live Conscious Health Meditation Course.

It's unlike any other type of meditation you've tried before.

  • 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!).

Easy to Integrate Daily Practice

Dr. Lauren Nelson, General Internist, Omaha, NE

"After years of trying to meditate on my own via apps, timers, books etc, I connected with Jill. As a fellow physician, I knew she was what I was looking for in learning to meditate. It was amazing! Jill is able to bridge the world of Vedic wisdom with the science of medicine, which is just what I was looking for in a teacher. More importantly, she teaches meditation so that it truly is easy. My daily practice no longer feels hard or uncomfortable. I am taking time to meditate every day, and that helps me feel more calm in my work and home life."

Improved Clinical Intuition

Dr. Laura Grimmer, General Surgeon, St. Louis, MO

"I had a very intuitive a-ha moment at work today. I was able to make a rare and life-saving diagnosis by putting together a lot of subtle findings that had been missed by other physicians. I believe the meditation has really improved my intuition and clinical judgment. Suddenly everything clicked together- it was a really cool experience."

Your Course Instructor

Jill Wener, MD

Jill Wener, MD

Dr. Jill Wener is a coach and consultant specializing in trauma-informed healing, empowerment, and advocacy. She is an entrepreneur and business owner who teaches EFT/tapping and meditation and provides anti-racism education and consulting. She is nationally-renowned as an expert in physician wellness, and she has:

-Led physician wellness programs around the country.

-Lectured at the national level on stress and the benefits of tapping and meditation.

-Been interviewed on multiple TV shows, radio shows, and podcasts.

She is also a podcast host and best-selling author, and she has several articles published on KevinMD.

Jill’s pursuits and experiences have not only helped her spread awareness of the techniques and education she advocates for, but they have also reshaped her philosophy. She has remained an avid listener and constant student, and her approach today is informed by her personal and professional experiences, her education and training, and her commitment to pursuing racial and social justice and fighting oppression.

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. Further, we don’t need ‘fixing’. Jill has come to understand on her own journey that we are all already enough, and she integrates that mindset into her work with clients. She’s also passionate about rejecting toxic perfectionist wellness mindsets, as these not only can harm people seeking out wellness practices, they also get in the way of true progress and growth.

Jill also believes in taking a trauma-informed approach to every session and workshop, and even to everyday personal encounters. She’s committed to providing – and being – a safe, judgment-free space for people and groups to make real strides toward the lives they’ve always wanted, but might’ve felt too disconnected to live.

She believes everyone deserves to have easy-to-use tools to heal and manage burnout, daily stressors, significant life changes, trauma and PTSD, interpersonal relationships, distressing political events and social justice concerns, and more.

Beyond having the tools, she wants people to feel empowered to embrace the fullness of their emotions – even the supposedly “bad” ones – so they can make true, meaningful progress in their individual journeys. She also believes everyone benefits when even one person accesses meaningful education and tools around anti-racism, anti-oppression and advocacy.

Jill has worked with clients such as Georgia Aquarium, ChenMed, Hartford Hospital, Emory University, Lodestar, the Santa Clara Medical Society, the Pittsburgh Business Group on Health, Yale University, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, University of Washington, Centene, Atkins Global, and the National Alliance for Healthcare Purchaser Coalitions. She is also the host of the Conscious Anti-Racism podcast.

Easier Than Other Types of Meditation

Dr.Lauren Fisher, Anesthesiologist

"So happy to have found the REST Technique because Jill makes it so much easier than any meditation practice I have tried in the past. Interrupted by thoughts? No problem, that's normal! Not enough time? That's ok, some meditation is better than no meditation! Not getting 'deep enough'? It's about the journey, not the destination. Sooooo good!"

  • 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.

    Here's the longer answer: This course is designed with healthcare professionals, in particular doctors, in mind.

    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 pharmacist, 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!

What Jill's Students Say


A Highlight of My Day


“This course did a phenomenal job of teaching me to how to meditate in an effortless manner. As a busy physician, meditation has significantly reduced my stress level, and allowed me to become more focused on prioritizing the aspects of my career that I enjoy the most. Meditation has definitely become one of the highlights of my day and has been a life-changing experience.”

Practical Benefits to Get Me Through


“I'm taking the re-cert boards in about 6 weeks and it's such a comfort to know that I'll have meditation as a resource before and during the exam!”

A Gift of Stress Release


“I truly feel so fortunate that I was able to learn this form of meditation. I feel very comfortable with the meditation and hope to continue forming this habit. The ability to embrace thoughts and recognize that the body’s release of stress via physical “symptoms” was beautiful. This technique will best help me to maintain purpose and to learn how to maintain a calmness/stillness and remain even-keeled.”

I'm a Much Better Version of Me


"This was the first time meditating that I felt less stressed about my reaction- whatever happened was okay! I felt a lot more relaxed, which allowed me to reap the benefits quickly. I have more energy, I feel less run down and less anxious or like the 'world is out to get me'. I'm able to let things go that previously would make me anxious or ruminate. Life is more fun, and I'm a much better version of me than pre-meditation. I'm more energized about my work. I'm more open to others' thoughts- I am more likely to think the best of others as opposed to the worst."
