We’re delighted to announce the International Holistic Centers Gathering of 2016 will be hosted by Le Monastère des Augustines in Québec City, Canada from May 15th to 20th.
In 2013, Isabelle Duchesneau attended the Gathering at Esalen, her first connection with the network of holistic centers. In her role as Executive Director of Le Monastère des Augustines, Isabelle has overseen an incredible project to transform a haven of culture and heritage in the heart of Quebec City into a Centre of Wellness which celebrates it’s official opening this summer.
For the participants of the Gathering in recent years it’s been a great joy to witness a center emerge and establish itself and then become the host of the next event!
A special package has been created for the Gathering and if you’re closely involved in a Holistic Centre you are warmly welcome to join us.
In addition to your participation at the Centers Gathering, the package includes:
- Accommodation in a restored original cloister (choice of authentic or contemporary room)
