Member Facilitated!

Our recent times have been a challenge for all.  The need to build resilience is important for both ourselves and our patients.  Nestled in the forests of the Hockley Valley we will spend time together learning and experiencing a variety of self-care modalities guided by our very own members:  EFT, Auricular Acupuncture, Breath Work/Shinrin-Yoku, Improv, Future Self Workshop, Poetry and Sound and Narrative Medicine.

The retreat centre will be for our exclusive use this weekend to better facilitate our collegial experience as well as to absorb the natural surroundings.  Provincial health guidelines pertaining to COVID protocol will be adhered to and all participants will have their own rooms.
