Addiction and Recovery

A Retreat with Jon Terrell, M.A.

Breaking Free From Addiction Patterns

We all long to shine in our lives and to be fully alive and present in each moment. But too often we find ourselves afraid of our feelings and caught in addictive patterns--we turn to food, alcohol and other drugs, shopping, tobacco, sex, and other behaviors as a way to avoid feeling. We repeat old destructive behavior patterns in new relationships, unconsciously recreating the conditions we want to avoid. We’re stuck in the same old unfulfilling story.

The New Story

It doesn’t have to be that way. On this addiction recovery retreat we’ll journey into the transformative power of love within a loving community. After creating a safe container, we’ll pass into and through “dark” emotions that we’ve buried or tried to avoid.

Using a variety of techniques including meditation, ritual, psychodrama and imagery, we’ll learn to connect with deeply held feelings and work them through to the other side. This is true “4th Step work.”

Miraculously, an alchemical transformation takes place. Lead becomes gold. Our dark, stuck feelings come bearing gifts, treasures waiting to be discovered. And in this discovery is celebration!

Come to this retreat if you want to:

• Free yourself from destructive patterns
• Transform anger & pain, release guilt, grief & shame
• Heal relationships
• Build intimacy
• Learn to set healthy boundaries
• Discover your true nature as a source of pure love, goodness & wisdom
• Live life more passionately
• Trust your life’s journey
