Professional Development Day 2021

We are pleased to announce that the 2021 TTNO Professional Development Day, Deepening Our Awareness of Wholeness in Our Therapeutic Touch® Practice, will be offered in 2021. It will be presented on Zoom or, if events permit, in person later in the year. Please contact your local teacher and watch the calendar of events to find out if the Professional Development Day will be offered in your area.

Flo Hartleib, TTNO Practitioner Liaison writes, "As a teacher I was especially moved by Lynn Vukosavljevic’s motivation to focus on wholeness...she said,

At the 2017 PDD, in addition to learning about Distant Therapeutic Touch, one of my ‘aha’ moments was about wholeness. An intuitive thought took hold –   'Illness can’t heal itself. It doesn’t have the intelligence/consciousness to do so. Only wholeness can heal illness.' I realized how little I knew about wholeness… my learning over the past two years has changed my TT practice from working with illness and imbalance to supporting wholeness. I’ve found that healing occurs in a different and deeper level, hence the decision to write a Professional Development Day on wholeness.”

Let’s explore this exciting new topic with our Branch members in 2020.

If you have any questions about the day, please contact Patricia Tamosetis at 613-625-2277 or or Lynn Vukosavljevic at 905-668-9683 or

About Professional Development Days

Professional Development Days are a wonderful opportunity to share new learning and experiences, to review and affirm what we already know and to share joyful and meaningful interactions on a topic of interest and relevance to all TT practitioners. They provide an opportunity to connect with friends, meet new members of our Therapeutic Touch community, learn new ideas and skills both for our inner growth and to enhance our practice of TT, and to have fun together.

Professional Development Days are open to all Therapeutic Touch practitioners – that is, anyone who has taken a Level One workshop. Taught as designed, the Professional Development Day fulfills the educational requirement for maintaining status as a Recognized Practitioner with the TTNO. The Professional Development Day may also count for a maximum of eight hours of the 32 additional hours of continued studies for achieving Recognized Practitioner status.

Some comments from the 2021 Professional Development Day

The best part of the day ...

Personal reflections and dialogue!

The mandala, the labyrinth meditation and the Therapeutic Touch session.

New information & insights...

I really enjoyed learning about and having the opportunity to try the finger labyrinth and the Mandela. I plan on using these tools in future.

There are more pathways to wholeness than obstacles.

I shall look for more glimpses of wholeness in our world, everyday, everywhere.

It’s ok if things are different from what we think they SHOULD be. Be present and accept things as they are.

Living in wholeness is a practice.

Other comments and suggestions...

Worked really well on Zoom. I didn't have to travel and still got to connect with my TT friends!

I will try centering and visualizing my wholeness, using Dora’s tree image, at the beginning and end of the day.

I enjoyed the mix of right and left brain activities.

No matter what we learn from these days, we always go back to the basic fundamentals of Order, Balance, & Harmony.
