The retreats are designed for healthcare professionals, but as everyone cares for another, those from all professional and spiritual backgrounds are welcome. The days are ideally aimed at those already experienced and comfortable with silence.

Social Media Survey

Dear All,


Hope you have had an enjoyable summer. 


We are in the process of reviewing the Janki Foundation's social media content, which includes our website. 


Studies have indicated that different healthcare professionals have variable use of social media platforms, and they will make recommendations to patients or colleagues based on their confidence and reliability of information. In the current climate of healthcare crisis and information overload, we would benefit from an understanding on how spirituality-related information is accessed by healthcare professionals. This will enable us to focus our messages, events and outreach. 


We would greatly welcome your valuable thoughts through this survey. It is anonymous and will take less than 10 minutes to complete. 


Thank you.

Best wishes, 

JF Social Media Review Group
