The journey from addiction recovery can be enormously challenging. Addiction and self-destructive behaviors can no longer be seen as the problem on purely an individual level, instead we must create recovery supported systems of care throughout our communities.

This transformative weekend will teach you how to actively contribute to this movement of change and heightened awareness regarding all aspects of addiction and the healing process for ourselves, our families, and our communities.

Part of the sacred journey of modern life is to move from a life filled with stress and distraction, to a life of healing and wholeness. Each person adds value as we overcome not just Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) but also Adverse Community and Climate Experiences.

Join us to creatively engage in ways of raising awareness about all issues surrounding addiction and how we, our families, and communities can heal from these issues.

Together, we will explore the various aspects of recovery including:

  • Recovery as a voluntarily maintained lifestyle of sobriety, personal health and participation in the roles and responsibilities of society.
  • The evolution and change of recovery over time.
  • Recovery as both a personal quality and a lived experience
  • Recognizing most recovery happens in the community, not in the clinic; treatment is not needed by everyone and it is only the start of the recovery journey.
  • Recovery does not happen in isolation – it is generally learned from other people who have gone down the same road and who ‘mentor’ or model the methods and principles of recovery
