“Recover Yourself” Virtual Workshop
Virtual | Sept. 14 or Sept. 21 or Sept. 28 10am to 1pm EST | $30 | Register Here
Burnout and fatigue exist as a possibility for each of us. Frustration and feelings of lack exist in every person no matter who they are. These are the reasons this workshop will focus on recovering ourselves. Participants will stop “recovering from” and start “recovering to” who they really are. Participants will learn techniques to quickly recognize and identify areas where they put on blinders and are reacting, rather than making choices they personally endorse. Adding awareness to these areas will unveil a unique set of tools to face challenges in life and inspire others to do the same.
A Serious Look at Rule 62
Virtual | Sept 24 from 4 to 5:30EST | Watch Here
This online event will bring out the lighter side of recovery by using Alcoholics Anonymous’ Rule 62: do not take yourself too seriously while you continue to take life and recovery seriously. The event will be a chance for those in recovery to share anecdotes, jokes and personal stories that remind us that recovery is, among other things, the opportunity to enjoy ourselves. Participants will learn tools for maintaining balance in recovery.
