AIMA Pre-Conference Retreat 2020
Date and Time
The Australasian Integrative Medicine Association is thrilled to invite you to the AIMA Pre-Conference Retreat...
Healing, ourselves and the planet
A retreat like no other.
Join us for this unique co-creative get-together focusing on self-care and self-healing.
As practitioners, we are all aware of the importance of self-care, but still, so often we don’t make caring for ourselves a priority. We invite you to join your peers and allow yourselves the time and space to heal and rejuvenate at this retreat in the beautiful Waitakere bush.
Guided by an experienced facilitator, you will participate, contribute and play a core role in the flow of this retreat. Together we will create a space to heal and connect, allowing for new insights, sharing of wisdom and deeper connections.
We are delighted to announce our workshop leaders.
Dr. Jude Currivan (UK) joins us as a workshop facilitator. Jude is a physicist, futurist, and cosmologist with a Ph.D. in archaeology. She integrates leading-edge science, research into consciousness and universal wisdom teachings into a wholeworld-view. Jude’s presence at the retreat is sponsored by the Ashton Wylie Charitable Trust.
Dr. Morella Lascurain, Medical Doctor and Clinical Hypnotherapist specialises in MindBody healthcare. She will present “The Ladder of Awareness: A developmental model linking spirit, mind, and body with practical applications in healthcare”.
Julia Ewer is trained and experienced in Psychosynthesis which is a model of soul-infused psychology that facilitates personal development whilst gradually harnessing innate vitality, potential and purpose. She is a NZ mentor for the International Group for Creative Meditation and is NZAC registered. Julia will present "A guide to opening our psycho-spiritual potential".
Dr. Graham Mead is a South African-born medical doctor who has been exploring the field of consciousness and the return to health through practical, internal self-awareness practices. An insistence on practical, experiential insight of the body-mind as a dynamic, sensory phenomena with an innate capacity to thrive, inspires his current work.
The retreat will consist of:
- talks, presentations & workshops
- group sharing
- experiential and co-creative work
- group meditation
