Shaping the Future of Healing:
Trends, Tools, and Next Steps
November 16th-18th 2018
This is a visionary conference for wellness practitioners, which aims to catalyze the talent, relationships, and resources within the healing arts community to improve our individual and collective impact in the communities we serve.
The conference is ideal for those who would like to work together to turn challenges faced by our communities into opportunities and collective mobilization. In particular, it would be great for wellness practitioners, educators, social enterprises, community leaders, students, and change agents.
The conference will be held from November 16th-18th, and funds raised will be used to support collaborative change initiatives post-conference, such as improved service delivery, new models for working, action strategies, and service-informed policy changes.
There are 4 key pillars that we are asking all participants to uphold,
Be Responsive to Both the Issues and the Opportunities
Bringing the issues from our
clients and professions forward
so we can create solutions, individually and collectively.
Strive for Common Ground in Ideas / Knowledge Exchange
Having discussions and thought exchange, both within and between disciplines, to increase awareness, learn from challenges and opportunities, create cohesion, and find common ground.
Improve our Ability to Create Meaningful, Lasting Change
Individual, organizational, community and systems-level change is needed. It's time we create a common agenda
to be that change.
Envision an Organized and Influential Community
Our professions need to be recognized as an integral part of community wellness, and we as community need to become recognized as an organized and influential professional community.
