Perspective on Addiction: A Workshop for Caregivers and Loved Ones of Addicts
February 25, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$180
Please join us for a day filled with self-care to provide some new perspective and techniques for caregivers and loved ones of addicts. The day will provide discussion and teachings around energetic boundaries, and compassion vs. trying to fix. We’ll learn techniques around holding space and allowing for each individual’s healing journey, yours and others.
We’ll also discuss some spiritual philosophies around what happens between body and spirit for the one afflicted with addiction.
Participants will receive gentle personal care with Reiki and aura clearings at the end of the day if they wish.
Come away with mindfulness meditation techniques, a new awareness of energy and spirit, and understanding of how this helps you and your relationships. In a world where a lot of shame can come up around this topic, we will hold a safe space of anonymity and openness.
When: Saturday, February 25th, 9-4pm
Pre-registration required by Wednesday, February 22nd. Space is limited. Please use tickets link below.
There will be about a 1hr lunch break, please bring a sack lunch or plan to go to a nearby restaurant.
