Cultivating Therapeutic Presence: A Weekend Retreat of Mindful Drumming, Photography and Meditation

Dr. Shari Geller and Dr. M. Lee Freedman
presented by Dr. Shari Geller and Dr. M. Lee Freedman

Saturday Sept. 28th, 2013: 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Sunday Sept. 29th, 2013: 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Location: Beaver Valley in Grey Highlands - Northeast of Flesherton

This retreat offers innovative tools to cultivate therapeutic presence, a foundational aspect to effective therapy and healthy living. In addition to the mental and physical health benefits, everyday mindfulness naturally encourages self-acceptance, self-care and self-honesty. Drumming increases vitality, connection, integration and enhances positive relationships. Photography, practiced as mindful seeing, promotes attention, perception of new perspectives and flexible responsiveness to ourselves and to others. With these practices we can develop new ways to deepen our listening and relating while feeling energized, calm and centred. With self-care comes an enhanced energy and capacity to feel connected with and to care compasionately for others. IDEAL FOR PEOPLE AT A BEGINNER OR EXPERIENCED LEVEL OF PRACTICE WITH MEDITATION, DRUMMING OR PHOTOGRAPHY Cost: $395 Early Bird Rate: $350 if registered and paid by Sept. 7th, 2013

For further information or registration please contact: Dr. Shari Geller - (416) 780-1791 x228 ( or Camilla at

What others have said about Shari's and Lee's Mindful Drumming and Photography Workshop:

"The workshop was a pretty unique and exciting experience for me." "Incredible" "(The) experience of various sounds helping me be more in touch with myself, and to “stay with myself” moment by moment." "I’m still thinking about the workshop every day. I’m making a bigger effort to be mindful. " " (An) experience of fun and playfulness and enjoyment throughout the whole workshop, while also experiencing community with others and a deepening and healing within myself." " (The) photography process helped me notice much more of the “right now”; to see what I would otherwise have completely “not seen”; to experience “being very present” and feeling “oneness” with what I was observing within my camera lens."
