Recovery means to retrieve something stolen or lost.
In recovery we reclaim our wholeness.
We retrieve our connection to life and our position in it.
For many of us it is hard to grasp that we are equally part of life with all living beings in it.
And many of us experience the hardship of reconnecting with ourselves, taking care of ourselves, owning our lives and moving towards self-respect.
The following recovery related and recovery specific topics are designed to inspire a deeper understanding of the issues we share. On the one hand they address the hardship of recovery and commonly shared difficulties. And on the other hand they are aimed to discover and nurture our internal nourishing resources to support our recovery. A deeper understanding reduces self-stigma and self-blame. It helps us grow self-compassion.
Each of the following inspirations and issues can be delivered as Presentations or more interactive workshops depending on your needs and company culture. Presentations may range from a 40 minutes Lunch & Learn to 2 hours. Depending on your needs workshops can be designed to any length from a half-day to a 4 weekly program. They may be tailored to your individual needs or company culture.
