Creating Sacred Spaces in Psychotherapy

June 7th and 8th, 2019
Downtown Toronto, Canada

Welcome to our 2019 Mind-Body-Spirit Clinician's Conference to celebrate holistic psychotherapy and integrative healing in the field of mental health and addictions. Here's your opportunity to connect and study with like-minded therapists who want to bring the best of mind-body-sprit approaches to clinical practice.

Dr. Shefali Tsabary, Ph.D. / NY Times Best-Selling Author / Clinical Psychologist

This year, we are thrilled to welcome Dr. Shefali Tsabary as our keynote faculty. Our Conference is put together by and for counselling professionals, and will be of special interest to Social Workers, Psychologists, Psychiatrists, Physicians, Nurses, and Psychotherapists.

Our 2019 program theme is The Awakened Therapist, and we will be joyfully exploring the role of consciousness-raising in ourselves and the work we do.

When we learn to be awakened to our own co-creation, every moment becomes an opportunity for expansion and enlightenment. We feel endlessly blessed by the many ways life shows us how we need to develop to our highest expression of self.

~ Dr. Shefali Tsabary, Ph.D., 2019 Conference Faculty


Meet with hundreds of colleagues who are dedicated to the blending of an evidence-based psychotherapy model with a holistic focus on transformation, transcendence and deep-seated healing.

The Central Questions: We explore three central questions that guide our Conference:

  1. How can we support, uplift and inspire one another in the deep healing work we do for both ourselves and clients who seek holistic mental health approaches to practice?
  2. How do we merge our professional skills, knowledge and expertise in evidence-based interventions with an honouring of the client’s psycho-spiritual journey?
  3. What professional, ethical and practical information do we need to have as we create sacred spaces for our clients which are also safe, effective and healing?

Hear from our conference faculty team of movers and shakers in the field -- they will be bringing you best practice teachings in an inspiration-packed workshop line-up that includes the following reflection themes:

  • Manifesting Your Soul’s Calling for Psychotherapists
  • The Awakened Heart of the Counselling Professional
  • Integrating Eastern Wisdom with Western Psychology
  • Mind-Body-Spirit Medicine in the Counselling Room
  • Psycho-Spiritual Healing & Evidence-Based Approaches in Psychotherapy

When I say that I am on a mission, I am not playing.  And the universe knows it....I do whatever I can to motivate people to learn how to access their truth and come into their authentic selves

-Dr. Stacy Thomas, Ph.D, C.Psych, 2019 Conference Faculty

How can we integrate our spirit-led mission into evidence-based counselling practices?  This will be a fundamental reflection during our 2 days together, with workshops and concrete tools to help mental health professionals bring their highest intentions to to their heart's calling.

A key theme in our program is the creation of a sacred space within clinical practice.  Based on your 2018 feedback, we've built in MORE time for networking, panel interactions and deep-dive workshops on the subject of integrative psychotherapy.




Why be afraid of the "S" word in Mind-Body-Spirit?

During the Conference Program, you'll be putting your fear aside, as you learn how to maintain professional commitment and scope of practice, while honouring the psycho-spiritual journey of your clients.
