Transcendence In Psychotherapy

The Conference for Mind-Body-Spirit Clinicians

Welcome to a Celebration of Holistic Psychotherapy!

November 6th and 7th, 2020

Toronto, Canada

Come and meet with hundreds of like-minded colleagues at Daybreak's 2020 Mind-Body-Spirit Clinician's Conference.  This year's program theme is Transcendence in Psychotherapy, and we will be joyfully exploring the path of the soul-guided therapist, in the context of depth healing and consciousness raising, both within our clients and ourselves.


This annual Conference is put together by and for counselling professionals who are dedicated to blending evidence-based psychotherapy with a holistic focus on integrative healing in mental health and addiction services.

This year, we are thrilled to welcome Psychotherapist and New York Times Best-Selling Author Thomas Moore.

Psychotherapist /Author: Care of the Soul / Dark Nights of the Soul

As our keynote faculty, Thomas will be speaking with us about the role of the therapist in helping clients to navigate dark nights of the soul. 

In archetypal psychology we ask: What does the soul want?  Answer that one and you are well on your way toward healing.

~ Thomas Moore, 2020 Conference Faculty

Our conference faculty will be guiding us through the exploration of three central questions that focus our two days of workshops.

The Central Questions

  1. How can we support, uplift and inspire one another in the deep healing work we do for both ourselves and clients who seek holistic approaches to practice?
  2. How do we merge our professional skills, knowledge and expertise in evidence-based interventions with an honouring of the client’s psycho-spiritual journey?
  3. What professional, ethical and practical information do we need to have as we create sacred spaces for our clients which are also safe, effective and healing?

This conference will be of special interest to Psychotherapists, Psychologists, Social Workers, Doctors, Nurses, Occupational Therapists, Counsellors, and anyone working in mental health and addictions. You'll get a chance to hear from our unique team of innovators in the field -- they will be bringing you best practice teachings in an inspiration-packed workshop line-up that includes the following 2020 conference reflection themes:

  • The Role of Transcendence in Psychotherapy
  • Journey Through Dark Night of The Soul
  • Trauma Transcendence and the Alchemy of Healing
  • A Therapist's Guide to Shadow Work and Money Patterns 
  • The Mind-Body Continuum in Complex Trauma and Chronic Pain
  • Psycho-Spiritual Healing & Evidence-Based Approaches in Counselling
  • ...and so much more!

Thomas Moore Discusses Soul & Spirit

Why be afraid of the "S" word in Mind-Body-Spirit?

During the Conference Program, you'll be putting your fear aside, as you learn how to maintain professional commitment and scope of practice, while honouring your heart's calling to bring depth work and transcendence into clinical practice.

Based on feedback from previous years, we're happy to be bringing in some new professional development conference elements including:

  • Case studies and small table reviews
  • Clinical demonstrations and small group practices
  • Deep dives focused on complex clinical scenarios
  • A high-vibration clinical round-table focused on YOUR healing signature vis-a-vis best practices in mind-body-spirit psychotherapy

If you've been at previous conferences, you know you can also count on group meditations, sound healing and LOVE to fill your Conference experience.


You definitely don't want to miss this!
