In the morning presentation, Beyond Identifications, Dr. Laurence Heller, internationally published author, will present the NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM) as a spiritually and somatically based psychotherapy. He suggests that, “Psychology without access to the overarching spiritual underpinnings of existence is limited, symptom oriented and ultimately less effective.”

In the afternoon presentation, The Roots of Healing, psychotherapists and spiritual practitioners who are senior members of the International Association of Sufism (IAS), Community Healing Centers (CHC), and the Sufism and Psychology Forum (SPF) will offer workshops grounded in deep psychospiritual practice to access presence grounded in being, innate internal balance, and heart-based resilience.

Afternoon presenters include: Jamal Granick, Ph.D., Arife Hammerle, Ph.D., and Amineh Pryor, Ph.D.
