Mantram Repetition: Mind-Body-Spiritual Practice for Self-Care with Jill E. Bormann, PhD, RN, FAAN
Nursing is a discipline that cares for the “whole person” and embraces a bio-psycho-social-spiritual perspective. Jill Bormann, PhD, RN, PhD, a psychiatric mental health nurse with an interest in spiritual wellbeing, has dedicated the past 20 years of her career developing and conducting research on the “Mantram Repetition Program.” It is an educational, experiential, skills-training intervention with aims of 1) choosing and using a mantram, 2) slowing down thoughts and behaviors, and 3) developing one-pointed attention for symptom and stress management. It can be practiced anywhere and at any time, making it practical and sustainable. For a brief description see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZbOOTVJDZs
