Welcome to the 7th Biennial Spirituality Conference 'Spirituality - The Invisible Ingredient in Health and Healing' and the 4th Faith and Nursing Symposium Inspiring Person Centredness: A Call to Action 

Spirituality Conference

May 8 - 10, 2019

We are excited to bring together an inspirational conference full of learning, sharing and networking. Spirituality is the Invisible Ingredient in Health and Healing. Join in conversations about encounters as the basis of spirituality, and spirituality as the basis of wellness. Engage in the paradox of how a focus on the individual - a person-centred focus - is also the foundation of togetherness, relationships, and connection. 

The conference features leading keynote speakers, workshops, paper presentations and poster sessions. New for this year will be Lightning Talks, for a visually stimulating interpretation of the conference topics. 

We gratefully thank all of our generous sponsors for their support of this year’s conference.
