“My experience with the 3 years of intensive training at ISIS Canada was one of great pleasure, significant challenges towards self awareness and understanding, great leaps into the scary unknown and magic of the creative process, deepened experience of self compassion and compassion towards others, and an embodied, wholehearted experience that I believe is essential for any practicing therapist. If we are to expect our clients to courageously step into themselves, and experience the vulnerabilities and uncertainties of life fully and creatively, we as therapists, must be willing to do the same. The ISIS training was invaluable to me as a person and as a therapist.”
