Hi Friends and Colleagues,

Here is some info about another event we are hosting together, this time in Barrie! Please feel free to share this with anyone you think might be interested in joining us on May 1st.

All the best,

Kim and Theo

Theo Fleury and Kim Barthel would like to welcome you to their life-changing event, “Conversations with a Rattlesnake”.

Join Theo as he divulges intimate details of his private life in a forum co-hosted with Kim. Observe and interact with Theo and Kim, who he calls “the Wayne Gretzky of Therapy,” as they facilitate a conversation on healing. By attending this up-close and personal one-day event, you will gain insight into conquering trauma.

First, listen to Theo as he shares his astonishing life experiences and recounts his personal journey of healing from trauma and addiction. His story will inspire a diverse crowd, including anyone overcoming their own trauma as well as parents, teachers, coaches, therapists, and health practitioners, whether they are faithful hockey fans or not.
After Theo’s story, learn about the reasons for our behaviour and how our brains work, as Kim provides an in-depth explanation of early childhood attachment and addiction. Kim explains how understanding groundbreaking scientific and psychological research can lead to eliminating the unnecessary and damaging shame that so often surrounds all of us in varying degrees.

Following Theo and Kim’s individual presentations is a thought-provoking, therapeutic discussion between them both. During this conversation, Kim asks Theo intimate questions that provide the audience with the opportunity for illuminating self-awareness. Theo’s life experiences and Kim’s information and interpretations all combine to provide a unique look into the healing process. Their interaction highlights the critical need for trusting and safe relationships along the healing journey.

Often noted as the highlight of the day is the last session, when participants are invited to join the conversation directly with Theo and Kim through a Q and A session. You may ask questions relating to either Theo’s journey, recovery in general, or share your own healing experiences. Confidentiality, respect, and mutual support is whole-heartedly encouraged throughout.

This event will take place once again on May 1th, 2014 in Barrie, Ontario at the Georgian Theatre.

Please feel welcome to join this event. Together we really are all stronger.
