Historic Webinar Recording


Join Sal Gencarelle and special guest Dr. William Sutherland for a 4-hour teaching/training webinar recording. This webinar will focus on finding wellness during the challenging times we find ourselves in. Learn more about how to gracefully grieve loss and change - and step into a greater sense of connection and resilience. 


We all are being affected by sickness, travel restriction, social distance, and quarantine. There is no denying the world has changed. 



How do we navigate the challenges we face during this time of COVID 19? Quarantine, social distancing, travel restrictions, and the illness itself is having massive impacts on everyone's lives. People's income, family relationships, social bonds are just some of the stressors we now are under. Mental health and overall wellness are starting to be severely impacted.




Protests and organized pushback against what some consider restrictions on personal liberty have begun. The stress is starting to become anger. People are pointing fingers and looking for someone or something to blame.



But, there is another approach to navigating the situation we find ourselves in. We don't have to feel like victims to circumstance - now or ever. We can learn to recognize and embrace change. Learning how to gracefully grieve change and loss is essential to our wellness. Through healthy grieving we can find a great well of resilience within us. We can find wellness even in the face of illness. 


Topics and Training Includes:

  • Grief and Grieving Well
  • Finding Stability through Connection Activities
  • Releasing the Disrupted Nervous System
  • Resilience in the Face of Adversity
  • Personal Rituals to Find Wellness
  • Preparing for Future Changes

After purchase you will be sent a email with a link to Dropbox where you can access the recording of the webinar 

More about Dr. William Sutherland


Dr. William Sutherland is the innovator of the Complexity Medicine concept and the founder of the Institute for Complexity & Connection Medicine. Moved by the spirit of Lewis Carroll, Dr. Sutherland found himself going down the rabbit hole from an early age, each path taking him to another door; each door to another world. Bonded to his Jazz drumming grandfather in his childhood, fascinated and pulled by the natural world, later to be immersed and schooled into the martial ways of Japan, and from there spring-boarding into a deep mentorship into indigenous and traditional healing ways around the globe; all of this was to serve as the foundation for a future career in medicine, the seed of which was always present from the start.




Holism, of course is funny that way. It inevitably finds you and, once so enticed, it does not let go. Having caught a hold of you, you can never see the world again in a disenchanted, dispassionate way. As well, Holism becomes the shaper of everything you do, and of everything you perceive. It is these living verities and experiential truths that have served to form (and inform) Dr. Sutherland throughout his healing journey and path of discovery, leading to the bringing forth of medicine that is an embodiment of complexity and wholeness, that is to say, a Complexity Medicine.



Presently, Dr. Sutherland is an Adjunct Assistant Clinical Professor at McMaster University and a Research Fellow at the Waterloo Institute of Complexity and Innovation. As well, his clinical practice time includes general practice psychotherapy, functional medicine, and emergency department care. In all of these diverse clinical settings, he works to embody and impart the feeling central to a practice of Complexity Medicine. Moreover, he is the father of four children, an avid gardener, and a blessed husband whose lovely wife Lisa gently and artfully helps him to remember to apply his principles of holism in medicine to the broader aspects of his life.
