Upcoming Community Meeting

Community Meeting with Dr. Shari M. Geller

Cultivating Presence and Self-Compassion

Tuesday February 20th, 2018


Mount Sinai Hospital,
600 University Avenue Toronto, Ontario
11th floor


Therapeutic Presence (TP) and Mindful Self-Compassion are trans-theoretical mechanisms of change in relationships and the emotional heart of mindfulness when we meet suffering. Together, self-compassion and therapeutic presence are powerful resources for clinicians, teachers, parents and individuals to strengthen therapeutic relationships, and to maintain emotional balance in the midst of challenges. Both of these practices can bring greater balance and joy to one’s life and work, and decrease stress and burn out.

This evening will provide a glimpse of the “first of its kind” two-day workshop in cultivating presence and self-compassion that will be offered on May 11 & 12th, 2018 in Toronto with Shari Geller and Christopher Germer (click here for more information). A sample of experiential practices, discussion and meditation grounded in clinical theory, research and neuroscience will be offered.

Dr. Shari Geller is an author, clinical psychologist, and creator of the Therapeutic Rhythm and Mindfulness Program (TRM™). With over twenty years experience weaving psychology and mindfulness, Shari co-authored the book, Therapeutic Presence: A Mindful Approach to Effective Therapy. She has released a companion CD on cultivating presence, with guided practices using the healing power of music and the health benefits of mindfulness. Shari’s newly released book: A Practical Guide For Cultivating Therapeutic Presence, offers practical guidance for cultivating and strengthening therapeutic presence as a foundational approach. Shari serves on the teaching faculty in Health Psychology at York University. Shari is the co-director of the Centre for MindBody Health, in Toronto, Canada.
