Ottawa's Somatic Experiencing training will be held at
Saint Paul University located at 223 Main Street along the
Rideau River. Students may choose to stay on campus in Saint
Paul's residence or stay at Novotel Ottawa, a nearby hotel,
both of which can be accessed at a discounted rate for students
of Somatic Experiencing in Ottawa. For more information on
accommodations, please read below.
Many students go to The Green Door restaurant located
directly across the street from Saint Paul University. The
Green Door is a vegetarian self-serve restaurant that very
clearly marks which foods are vegetarian, vegan, organic,
gluten free, etc. More dining options are available within a 5-10 minute drive. Bank Street, which is located just across
the Rideau Canal, has a wide number of various restaurants and cafes.
The nearest superstore and grocery store, Loblaws, can be found at 64 Isabella street and can be accessed from Saint Paul University by 5 minutes drive or a 15 minute walk.
Students can access public transit by using the bus system (OC Transpo), taxi (BlueLine, Capital Taxi Ottawa) or drive sharing apps. We will also set up a drive-share plan during one of the breaks on the first day of training for individuals looking to give or receive rides from fellow participants in SE. Parking at Saint Paul University is $10.00 per day paid at a meter.
