2020 is the Year of Compassion. JOIN US ON AN ADVENTURE

Every year the Ottawa River Psychology Group takes retreat in a beautiful place and reflects as a team on where we are, what we have learned, where we wish to grow together. This past June 2019, as we gathered together in a beautiful high-vibration retreat in Chelsea, Quebec, our team felt strongly that we wanted to reach out and share trainings with our favourite Third Wave Psychology mentors, clinicians, inspirations, and teachers.

2020 is now shaping up to be The Year of Compassion for the Ottawa River Psychology Group, for Third Wave clinicians, and those committed to development of the limitless quality of compassion for their own wellbeing and growth, and for that of the world.

We are taking this opportunity to suggest you SAVE THE DATES for three amazing trainers, all researchers, authors and leaders in the field of compassion. We launch our year of compassion with a Clinicians’ Compassion Focused Therapy Skills Day led by Ottawa River Psychology team members on May 15, 2020 to prepare the community for a DEEP DIVE into the practice of COMPASSION FOCUSED THERAPY with author and CFT trainer DEIRDRE FAY teaching a two day workshop on May 16-17, 2020 on Healing Your Broken Heart.  We then welcome ACCEPTANCE AND COMMITMENT THERAPY CO-FOUNDER DR. KELLY WILSON on September 4-5, 2020 for an experiential ACT workshop titled The Deepest Kindness.  We celebrate the trifecta of amazing teachers with a final one day workshop on FIERCE SELF COMPASSION with MINDFUL SELF COMPASSION RESEARCHER DR. KRISTIN NEFF on November 7, 2020.

We are honouring our intentions to deepen and grow in courage, generosity, and kindness. We hope you will join us in this adventure.
