Imagine a healthcare system where the patient is treated, not just the disease—a system where complimentary healing modalities such as yoga, Reiki, essential oils, nutrition, and contemplative care are integrated with mainstream allopathic medicine in a holistic approach to patient and self care.
Are you a caregiver? Are you looking for self care?
"Within this ground breaking program is the information and instruction that will enable you to live your personal life with greater mindfulness, compassion, and calmness...You will deepen your commitment to care giving as you come to experience and know the relief you will bring others in the midst of their physical and emotional suffering." ~ Donna Karan
This program is two-fold...patient care and self care.
Urban Zen Integrative Therapy (UZIT) Training is for anyone who has experience in one of the following modalities: yoga, Reiki, essential oils, or is a nurse, doctor, or social worker. UZIT is designed to provide comfort and support to you and others in need. The program is uniquely designed to address Pain, Anxiety, Nausea, Insomnia, Constipation, and Exhaustion (PANIC™).The Urban Zen Integrative Therapy Program (UZIT) is about caring, caring for yourself and caring for others in a healthy, holistic way; not only when you or your loved ones are ill, but everyday.
Those who have completed the training and clinical rotations have experienced this transformation, not only within themselves, but in those they have touched

“UZIT is about Doing less and Being more.
Live in the present and feel free, live in the now and BE. "
~ Pamela Hunter, UZIT Regional Director Chicago
"The first day of on-site training we were asked, 'What gets in the way of taking care of yourself?' This question was the beginning of my transformation. I now know, it is ok to feel, to drop in, to feel my feet, to first take care of myself so I can take care of others."
~ Amy Moore, UZIT in Training 2018
"I waited for the UZIT program to come to Chicago for almost 5 years! When I signed up I thought I was learning how to take care of others, but I walked away experiencing how to take care of myself. The daily practice itself showed me the power of the program and how it will provide comfort and support to all I touch."
~ April Waldrop, UZIT in Training 2018
The UZIT program equips you with the necessary tools to avoid the burnout that is rampant in their professions. UZITs learn techniques for grounding, relaxation and restoration in order to be present as they serve.
As Roshi Joan Halifax says, “Healthcare without self-care is sick care.
This training consists of 13 on-site training days plus home study. Students will have up to 12 months to complete all the program requirements.
Three on-site trainings make up the 13 days:
- On-Site 1: 5 days; January 22 - 26, 2019
- On-Site 2: 4 days; February 20 - 23, 2019
- On-Site 3: 4 days; April 10 - 13, 2019
Each training day begins with a yoga class which includes active and restorative poses, breath work and meditation. The rest of each day is filled with full group discussions plus mentor-led small group meetings, UZIT practice sessions and role playing.
We will build the learning sessions around the five UZIT modalities and how to weave them together to alleviate pain, anxiety, nausea, insomnia, constipation and exhaustion.
- Therapeutically-oriented yoga including in-chair and in-bed mindful movements, restorative yoga, breath awareness practices and body awareness meditations.
- Level 1 Reiki training for self-practice and for use in clinical settings.
- Essential Oil education and practice with 12 therapeutic-grade essential oils including Lavender, Lemon, Peppermint, Frankincense and other special blends. Participants will learn benefits and contraindications for each essential oil.
- Nutrition as self-care.
- Contemplative care training and practice to stay present, calm and effective in the midst of suffering.
