Physicians and Medical Professionals


JANUS PROJECT

In 1999-2000 a group of physicians, medical specialists, clergy and social workers met together for a training program sharing their experiences providing medical care for end-of-life patients.

Initially funded by a small grant from the Blue Cross-Blue Shield Foundation and coordinated by the Cedar Tree Institute, this project set into motion a framework for 14 ensuing summer seminars and 12 winter symposiums. Over 350 medical professionals have participated.

These training programs are intentionally shaped by mind/body experiences (hiking, Tai Chi, kayaking, snowshoeing, skiing, and small-group dialogue).

Guest participants have joined us from Wisconsin, Texas and Massachusetts. Drs. Mike Grossman and Larry Skendzel, medical directors for Marquette County’s two hospices, continue to partner with Jon Magnuson, a social worker and clergyman, shaping the Janus Project’s unfolding vision.

Janus refers to the Greek god of thresholds, gates & doorways.
