Mantram Repetition:

Mind-Body-Spiritual Practice for Self-Care

Guest Speaker: Jill E. Bormann, PhD, RN, FAAN

FRIDAY, October 2nd, 2020; 11AM – 12PM PT (2PM – 3PM ET)

Mantram Repetition: Mind-Body-Spiritual Practice for Self-Care

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:

In this Webinar, Dr. Bormann will take us on a journey on the origin and research on the Mantram Repetition Program.

Presentation Objectives:

1. Describe the origins of the “Mantram Repetition Program.”
2. Outline similarities and differences between mantram repetition and other types of mantra practices.
3. Highlight some research findings of the Mantram Program in selected groups.
