The purpose

The IBSR (Inquiry-based stress reduction) intervention, developed by Byron Katie (, trains subjects to reduce their perceived level of stress by self-inquiry of their thoughts and beliefs connected to stressful circumstances or symptoms. This meditative process, named "The Work", enables the participants to identify and question the stressful thoughts that cause their suffering. The core of IBSR is simply four questions and a turnaround, which is a way of experiencing the opposite of what the participant believes. This process is simple, powerful and can be easily implemented in daily life. Therefore, on the basis of previous data and beneficial observations the investigators postulate that the clinical utility of IBSR mediation program may alleviate stress and rate of burnout and improve quality of life among health care professionals. Thus, we will conduct a pilot/feasibility Observational study designed to: - Assess feasibility of a IBSR intervention by examining attendance, drop-out rates, and program satisfaction. - investigate whether IBSR intervention is efficacious in alleviating stress and rate of burnout and improving quality of life among health care professionals.
