Dimensions Retreat Homepage



A Recharge Retreat for physicians. Take time out from patient care and make time for self-care.

The all-inclusive ‘RECHARGE’ three-night Retreat is an ACTUATE leadership program, hosted by Dimensions and tailored to practising physicians who are feeling depleted and exhausted, and who are looking for practical strategies to manage expectations both personally and professionally.

Dimensions Algonquin Highlands, a picturesque lakeside setting edged by canopied forests, is the location for RECHARGE, a new series of physicians’ weekend retreats. The program draws on the therapeutic power of nature, is limited to 14 attendees, and is structured around a wellness and self-care model that includes a focus on enhancing communication and relational skills.
