B'nai Brith Calgary Speaker Series - Dr. Allan Donsky, Psychiatrist and Mindfulness teacher
Tikkun Olam: Healing yourself as essential for healing the world.

The injunction to heal the world must include, at its foundation, the work to heal ourselves. Given there is no ultimate or permanent separation between the individual and the world then self-care, mental well-being and spiritual nourishment are essential for the journey. This talk includes Mussar and Kabblistic perspectives as we move toward more nourishing ways of being, in our world of doing.

Event co-chairs: Irena Karshenbaum and Joel Zimmerman

Jun 6, 2021 10:00 AM in Edmonton

Dr. Allan Donsky
Psychiatrist and Mindfulness teacher
Allan has practiced as a Child and Adolescent psychiatrist for 24 years. He blended his professional background in Mental Health with a deep appreciation for Mindfulness as a way to navigate our human experience. An integrated approach to wellness using mental, emotional, existential and spiritual understandings is now at the core of his work. His vision is to have a “Human Curriculum” in our educational system. With this knowledge, young people could then launch into adulthood knowing how their brain works, how to navigate the mind and how to be more emotionally and socially competent. Allan has given presentations and led Mindfulness workshops for students of all ages, Educators, University Students, Wellness Center staff at the University of Calgary, Medical conferences, Psychiatry Residents and numerous community agencies. Allan has been married to Michele for 36 years and has 2 adult children. He enjoys walking long distances, photography, meditation and classical music.
