The Next Annual
Eastern Ontario Therapeutic Touch® Retreat
will be held at the Galilee Centre, Arnprior
May 25-27, 2018
Special Guest, Diane May
"Healing Presence to Healing Moment: Patterns of Experience"

This primarily experiential session explores the way we identify with our own healing presence and what this means to us as Therapeutic Touch practitioners. How do we know what constitutes healing presence and how do we maximize that potential? From that base, how does healing presence potentiate a healing moment in our healing partner and what patterns do we identify when a healing moment occurs.

Diane May, RN, has practised and taught Therapeutic Touch for the last 30 years in Canada and internationally. If you have never taken a workshop from Doane, now is the time! If you have, you know that she is a dynamic public speaker who always has much to share.

Pre-requisite: Level 3

This workshop is approved by the TTNO for achieving and maintaining RP status.
