What is T.H.E. Meeting All About?
It is a gathering with a purpose. The meetings will vary, and participation can occur at a variety of levels. Some of the ways we engage at meetings include:
Experiential Sharing: A guest or member leader will present and share an experiential modality. As participants in the meeting we will gain insight into a new practice, how it is used, and will experience the modality at some level. This may include art therapies, sound therapy, yoga postures & practices, meditation exercises, or aroma therapies to name a few. If you have a special skill to share, please sign up to lead us in the experiential process.
Theory & Perspective Discussions: A guest or member leader will present a perspective, theory, or specialty topic. Participants will have opportunities to understand and ask questions to explore the perspective. These discussions may include topics like ethics, Quantum Physics, or working with PTSD clients. Consider your areas of expertise, and sign up to present and host a discussion.
LISTEN, Elder Speaks: These are special meetings where we gather, and are privileged to Listen to an Elder among us or one from the larger community. Elders have a life-time of Wisdom to share with us that will further our experience as practitioners exponentially. Elders are the natural leaders of our community, and T.H.E. Meeting intentionally creates a space and opportunity to listen to this Wise Group of Men and Women.
Circle Discussion: We all have professional questions, exciting happenings, and new resources to share. Start a circle discussion with a specific topic in mind, or just let it organically unfold.
Participation also includes conversations and information on our T.H.E. Meeting Facebook Group page. Anyone who is part of our community may post helpful information, videos, articles, or pose questions to the group.
T.H.E. Meeting desires and seeks both membership with a layering of experience, age, gender, and type of practice as well as a multifaceted opportunities in which to participate in this community at various intensities over time.

In 2018, we are going to try something new.

Host T.H.E. Meeting: As the host, you can determine the location and date/time of our meeting. You can present, bring in a presenter, or simply provide a time and space for a circle discussion. Most meetings there are about 7-12 participants. It’s easy!
The Purpose: T.H.E. Meeting is a time for practitioners to relax, replenish, renew, and rejuvenate themselves emotionally, spiritually, and physically. When a therapist, healer, or educator cares deeply for themselves, the ability to care for others grows. The dates and times may change depending on the presentation, and the availability of the leader or Elder. The calendar of events will be updated regularly both on this page and on our Facebook page.
