New Newsletter Team

Greetings EA Canada! We would like to introduce ourselves to all of you. We, Tanya Kliefoth, Xavier Williams, and Syttana Barbara El Mubarak are your new newsletter team. We have some fun, innovative ideas for the format and content of the EA newsletter. We want to make this a collaborative experience with all of you. Therefore please send us any comments or suggestions for the newsletter itself. The EA newsletter will not only be featuring announcements about EA Canada but also relevant, existentially based articles. We therefore make this the first official call for articles to be featured in subsequent newsletters.  If you have already have an article or any ideas for an article, please email us by clicking on this link


Authentic Living Workshops

We are offering 13 different 1-day workshops which are suitable for professional development for anyone training or working in the helping/healing/health fields.  The purpose is to learn more about oneself through an existential lens as well as how to apply an existential conceptualization to one’s work with clients. Participants can also take the workshops solely for personal development (short phone intake required).   Join us for two of the themes this spring.
