Urban Zen, Lole Women and Parrish Art Museum have joined forces for the Lole White Tour in the Hamptons, a yoga benefit for community wellness led by Colleen Saidman Yee and Rodney Yee on August 27, 2014. The August event at the Parrish Art Museum is particularly meaningful to Urban Zen – it’s not only an amazing evening of yoga with two of the Urban Zen Integrative Therapy Program Co-Directors, it’s also a fundraiser for both the Urban Zen Integrative Therapy Program at Southampton Hospital and the Parrish Art Museum Foundation.

Doorways of Not-Knowing

Written by: Barbara (view bio) Wednesday, 25 June 2014

Each day that I cross the threshold of a patient’s room during my clinical rotation, I am aware that I don’t know what I will find. I enter the not-knowing with a sense of openness and anticipation. Each new patient is a world of his or her own, with a unique history and personality.

Referrals for UZ may come from a doctor, nurse, or family member. Nurses provide some basic health information, but details are often slim. Sometimes they let us know whether the patient is having a good day or a bad day and whether they might enjoy Urban Zen session today. Even with those details, we don’t know what we’ll encounter.
