Keynote | Dr. Carolyn Green
Including a Spiritual Dimension into the Psychology of ‘Knowing Thyself’
To truly know ourselves through the study of mind and behavior, it becomes necessary to integrate a spiritual dimension, and a new framework for understanding.
In her talk, Carolyn introduces us to the work of Stanislav Grof, one of the early pioneers of non-ordinary states of consciousness. His work as a principal investigator of psychedelic studies ultimately led to his development of Holotropic Breathing (Holotropic literally means “moving towards wholeness”)
Carolyn outlines Grof’s expanded cartography of the psyche and its usefulness for knowing oneself.

Feature Workshop | Rev. David Old
Wisdom of the Enneagram (CEU Credit)
This introduction to the Enneagram explains what is responsible for its popularity today, plus how it aligns with Unity Principles. The Enneagram's nine unique approaches to life makes it a powerful tool for the discovery of emotional and thought patterns that can distract us from the present moment and the powerful life force flowing through us. (Note: A second follow-up workshop will be offered for those wishing to delve more deeply into this fascinating subject. )
An update from Rev David on how you can get prepared for his workshop, including the Enneagram Test Links is here.
Feature Workshop | Rev. Greg Coles
Sacred Listening Circle
During times of rapid change and heightened anxiety, it is more important than ever to take time to go within for Spirit's peace and guidance. As Truth students, a question to reflect upon is "how do we use change for our spiritual growth?" both as ministries and as individuals. Rev. Greg Coles introduces a refreshing perspective of change called Theory U, and facilitates a time of sacred listening for Spirit's voice in ourselves and each other.
A remarkable line-up of Canadian talent!
