This DREAMjunction explores the theme CULTIVATE. 

cul·ti·vate (verb)
2. to acquire or develop (a quality, sentiment, or skill).

For this retreat we invite you to wear a costume that will inspire you to CULTIVATE a quality which will support your personal evolution.

DREAMjunction is multi-sensory evening retreat which will immerse you in a space of wonder and self-exploration. We integrate the holistic modalities of  intuitive dance, visual arts, breathwork, conscious relating, nutrition, and commUnity!

We begin our retreat as Trish grounds you into the space with an intuitive movement exercise, followed by a meditation and land acknowledgment to begin your journey. Next you will be guided through a powerful Elemental Rhythm Breathwork session followed by a conscious relating exercise.

Then we will take a break and you will be offered some nourishing snacks as well as our ‘Symbio Expander’ — a body energizing, heart expanding elixir prepared with Love by holistic chef Doris Fin. This nutrient dense elixir will allow for a deeper, more embodied experience before we sing and dance.

Next, we will have the pleasure of experiencing Chris Assaad’s Music Medicine and Voice Alchemy offering. A heart-opening music medicine journey weaving songs, stories and transformation. The experience will include playful and powerful invitations to make sound and use our voices together, to amplify love and oneness, and to receive nourishment for the soul. 

Finally we flow into our 90-minute intuitive dance with audiovisual storytelling by the dynamic Christian Zero. We will complete our ceremony with a gratitude meditation and closing circle.

The last part of the evening is the Symbio Social, where WE FEAST together, on a nourishing meal created once again by chef Doris Fin, as she offers her gift of food alchemy. (Vegan and omnivore options available).

This is also a time for more connection, sharing, laughing, and networking!

We look forward to co-creating this magical and empowering experience with you❣️

Celebrate strength of the human spirit, in a commUnity journey.


Symbio Sound System

This custom configuration delivers pure music energy, rather than the sound of a sound system, trying to make sound.
Your organism will reel in ecstasy!

Audiovisual Journey

Cinema quality projection; uniquely inspiring visuals, integrated with music;
harnessing a range of genres;
masterfully mixed by Christian Zero.

Symbio Expander

A pre-dance delight designed to nourish your DREAMjunction experience. This grounding, heart-opening elixir is prepared with Love, intentionality, and nutrient dense ingredients.

Breathwork Meditation

Guided deep breath work session that will allow you to break through mental barriers to reach deeper layers of your self. These journeys can help process emotional blocks, ignite deeper self awareness, and invite meaningful breakthroughs. Breath is life!

A Space Made Sacred

This is a safe container of non-judgement and inclusion for healing and expansion.
We feel radical self-acceptance brings us back to wholeness, which is essential to living a thriving life. We facilitate this by supporting freedom of expression, self-exploration, communion with the environment,
and our commUnity.

Intuitive Dance

Our hosts will be supporting you to tap into the innate wisdom of your body. This practice is about letting primal forces of the universe move through your organism; allowing your being to move however it feels called, even if that means laying down for 20 minutes! Intuitive dance is for mental, emotional, and physical healing. Intuitive dance is for spiritual well-being. Intuitive dance is for JOY!
What else are we here for?!?

Nourishing Dinner

Food has the power to heal and nourish the body, soul, and mind. With holistic nutrition as one of our core modalities we are offering a nutritious, whole foods meal to enjoy during the social. This will include a warming Moroccan stew (choice of vegan or lamb) with rice; mixed greens & veggie salad with Italian balsamic dressing; Fincicles for dessert,
a true “treat” for the body.

Symbio Social

A space for conscious commUnity. A time to foster authentic relationships; learn about the offerings of others; share your own; and laugh! A variety of herbal teas will also be available.

Symbio Connect

Access to early notifications in our
commUnity Telegram thread. A place for
music sharing, compassionate communication, respectful activism & community offerings.

Moment from
at Soulshine Festival:


“It’s hard to put this incredible experience into words and to describe how elevated I feel right now; my heart is SO full of unconditional love, joy and gratitude; I feel SO present, free, connected and SO at peace. The combination of the ecstatic dance with the breathwork is very powerful, transforming and healing. During the ecstatic dance I experienced a profound release; I felt free and powerful. The transition to the breathwork was just divine; by the first round, I was out of my body. This whole experience is out of this world!! I am very grateful for being part of the Symbio community and being around these amazing people!” -Mariana Potero

“…it fills my heart, makes me feel amazing, recharges me,
sends me home ready to tackle life again…”
– Heather Doherty

“So grateful for the Symbio Community! These events created by Trish and Christian are overflowing with passion.
To be in this community where one’s creative expression can be explored and acknowledged
is liberating and beautiful.”
– Liz Defreitas

“There are not many opportunities to connect or create connection outside your immediate clique. The retreat facilitated that in a meaningful way and short period, almost like an awakening for something you didn’t realize you need. I see the potential for Symbio to provide a new structure for meaningful community that so many people desire.” -Wesley S.

Christian is passionate about creating profound immersive experiences for people. With a reverence for design in the broadest sense, his particular area of work integrates music, storytelling, ecology, “synaesthetics” and dance.

“The practice of ‘stepping back’ to feel out my own intentions has been a purifying gift, which keeps on giving. It reminds me of this desire to nourish in others the most magnificent of feelings!”

Versed in an array of technology, Christian began performing with some of the first real-time audio-video performance systems. He was fortunate to have worked with a number of prominent brands at a young age, performing at the launch of HBO Canada, and the first Nuit Blanche to be held in Toronto. This lead to supporting various corporate event productions for brands like National Geographic, Yahoo, Heineken, and holding residencies at some of Toronto’s biggest Nightclubs (Lucid, Muzik). Christian then created an interactive ‘choose-your-own-adventure’ DVD in 2006, which earned him a scholarship to The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC). While centred in the department of Film, Video, New Media, and Animation (FVNMA), he utilized the multi-disciplinary freedom made available at SAIC to pursue courses in the Humanities; Animation; and Performance.

After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts, Christian worked on concert visuals for the Toronto summer series ‘Electric Island’. There, he was fortunate to support the performances of artists like Sven Väth, Maya Jane Coles, and Dixon, while experimenting with his own custom performance technology called ‘Gysr’ (geyser). This is a software interface which facilitates mapping aesthetic natural language to media and information, for flexible retrieval in a live setting. Continuing its development, Christian founded a creative collective called INNERST8, who put forth a number of productions prioritizing mixed media. This involved collaboration with artists of varied discipline, including Paul Kwitek; Petar Dundov; Stephanie Payne; and Natasha Kudashkina. Further inspired by holistic health modalities, and an ongoing environmentalist drive, the vision for Symbio was born.

Trish creates safe and sacred spaces of non-judgement for radical self-expression and self-acceptance. She is a maternal soul doing the work to live her human experience to the fullest. She loves dancing, singing, food, and communing with nature. As a holistic health and wellness practitioner since 2015, most of her work has involved supporting women seeking mental, emotional, physical and spiritual well-being. She does this using an array of holistic lifestyle practices and modalities including nutrition, ecstatic dance, breathwork, and neurolinguistic studies. “The greatest love story we will ever be a part of is the one which leads us back to our own heart.” – Trish Trish hosts transformational events, including retreats, ecstatic dances, and sacred healing ceremonies. Her experience includes one-on-one client coaching and a foundational 12-week online program to empower women.  Her path was inspired by a desire to heal her body and mind after years of neglect and depletion. This all came to the surface after the birth of her youngest son. Once she began her healing journey she felt a deep calling to support others on their own journeys. “When holding space, I intuitively provide what is needed for my clients to feel seen, heard, and supported on all levels. My purpose and passion in this life is to be of service through the supreme state of Love. All the years of work I’ve invested into creating a magnanimous life are culminating in the work I’m doing through Symbio.” -Trish
Doris Fin

Global Chef Doris’ fascination with food and cooking began at the curious age of seven. At the age of eighteen, she began travelling to explore various cultures and cuisines, including Israel, India, Thailand, Iceland, Italy, Bali, Hawaii, Laos, Ecuador, Peru, Costa Rica and many others. This allowed her to expand her palate and develop her craft. Doris’ passion is fuelled by gathering fresh ingredients to create delicious and nutritious meals, then feasting with others, family style.  

While cooking and foraging with various chefs and seasoned foodies and foragers, Doris has garnered a joy for cooking with quality, local, and seasonal ingredients. Through her interactive cooking classes, creative dinner events, and wholesome catered wellness retreats, she makes things fun while educating palates to appreciate natural flavours.

Doris encourages people to connect with themselves, to really understand and explore what they individually require for their body and mind to thrive, rather than follow trends and dogmas. She speaks about the importance of supporting and building relationships with local food producers, and really getting to know your food, from farm to fork. Doris believes unity and connection is better cultivated when we know how, and by whom our food is grown. 

After more than two decades of cooking; traveling; teaching hundreds of people; and feeding thousands, Doris has made it her mission to help people rediscover their love for real cooking.

Locally grown and happily raised ingredients play a major role in her menu development, for which Doris continually searches out the freshest and best ingredients. If she’s not buying directly from the farm or picking from the forest and garden, you’ll find her hopping around farmers markets, joyously discovering new ingredients to experiment with.

Chef Doris also sells her organic frozen treats, including Fin cakes and Fincicles, the “ice cream bar” version of Fin cakes. They happen to be dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free, and refined sugar-free, and come in many flavours! You’ll get to experience these treats at NEXTchapter.

Chris Assaad is a multi-talented artist, singer-songwriter, wordsmith and speaker. His songs are pure alchemy that open the heart and inspire, connecting us to our wholeness and joy.

Chris is an up-and-coming artist within the conscious music community and wellness & transformation movement opening up for artists such as Trevor Hall, Ayla Nereo, Michael Franti and Nick Mulvey. He has also collaborated live and in the studio with Mose.

He has been growing an international grassroots community, sharing his eclectic blend of soulful roots music, heart-opening songs and stories with audiences in Canada, Australia, the US & Europe playing clubs and festival dates from Wanderlust Whistler to The Sound Dome in Sydney.

Chris recently released his fourth studio album entitled GOLDEN in partnership with White Swan Records & Black Swan Sounds. His most raw and vulnerable album to date was recorded in Victoria, BC in collaboration with producer Joby Baker (Deva Premal & Miten, Alex Cuba & the Wailin’ Jennys) who also produced Assaad’s LION LP.

Chris has a deep passion and unique gift for supporting others in liberating their voice, amplifying their authentic self-expression and tapping into their infinite creative potential.

Chris’ artist journey began with a leap several years ago to follow his heart and passion for music. Just as he began exploring his love of singing and songwriting he was suddenly faced with a rapidly progressing hereditary hearing loss condition.

Nearly two years and several surgeries later, Chris’s hearing was restored and he was given a second chance, further cementing his path of a life dedicated to his artistry. He has become an inspirational voice for others to follow their creative and spiritual paths towards living a life they love.

As a facilitator and guide, Chris holds a powerful sacred space for healing and transformation, drawing upon years of experience, deep empathic attunement and intuitive guidance. He has developed his own Voice Alchemy method to help clients access the healing power of their voice, weaving practical tools, ancient wisdom and multiple healing modalities to bring forth the full potency of their unique soul song and expression.  Chris is also the creator of Follow Your Art, a lovingly-crafted online program and detailed map to support the creative journey.

Ariel creates a safe space and inspires you to dive into the subconscious and connect with your true essence. Through his breathwork facilitation and coaching, he creates experiential opportunities for people to explore their inner reality, and strengthen their intuition. His pallet of tools includes the use of the breath, music, instruments, meditation, and integration exercises.

People have shared having had powerful releases of trapped emotional energy through Ariels work. It is common for people to experience such intense emotion that tears flow, yet even more common is a sense of fulfillment upon completion, lightness, and immense gratitude. Some have even expressed how breathwork provided more insight and clarity into their lives than plant medicine teachers like Psilocybin and Ayahuasca.

This is a space for body-soul-mind
expansion and exploration.

DREAMjunction is a container within which we will celebrate; heal; and acknowledge all that is sacred. We will dream together to create a loving, thriving, beautiful reality.

Symbio is an embodied commUnity, dedicated to actualizing a profoundly symbiotic humanity. If you feel resonance, we look forward to creating synergy with you.

“Honestly, I’m hooked. I’m a wellness facilitator as well and I need to be facilitated FOR! I gravitate to what feels good and right, and I received everything I needed and then some. And I’m coming back for more! So thank you, thank you, thank you Symbio and BLESS!” – Renata Preisman

“It was just so beautiful and so all encompassing. And I just felt free, free to move without judgment. Free to listen, to hear, to be a part of a community without judgement.” – Sheera Kaminsky

“..a pious and great initiative. I think more people should get involved. The intent is the wellbeing of human life, so this is going to be our future. Future generations; they need to live; we have to think now.” -Dr. Pramod Pandey, PhD., guest speaker

• We honour each person’s physical space and don’t assume hugging or touching is welcomed. It may not feel the same for us as it does for others.

• What is shared here is sacred and in confidence. We recognize it takes a great deal of courage and vulnerability to share in this circle.

Your Sisters,

Trish, Teena & Liz


FIRST & FOREMOST: Your experience here begins in the heart. This is a safe, inclusive space of non-judgment. Guests and participants are expected to hold each other in compassionate regard, and to interact with each other with respect. The intention behind these guidelines helps to create a world where we can truly thrive together – nature included. Oneness consciousness is about being aware and mindful as to how we affect ourselves, others, the space around us and nature.

To organize and advance as human beings, we must first learn to take responsibility for ourselves, our actions and the impact we make on the spaces and individuals we interact with. A clear space within creates a clear space on the outside. Change starts from within.
