Addiction and Recovery Retreat
 With Jon Terrell, M.A.

Healing Your Suppressed Emotions

We all long to shine in our lives and to be fully alive and present in each moment. But too often we find ourselves avoiding our uncomfortable feelings which leads  addictive patterns--we turn to food, alcohol and other drugs, shopping, tobacco, sex, and other behaviors as a way to avoid those same feelings.

In addition we repeat old destructive behavior patterns in new relationships, unconsciously re-creating the conditions we want to avoid. We end up stuck in the same old unfulfilling story.

The New Story

It doesn’t have to be that way. All of our retreats focus on going back into the stuck suppressed emotions we have avoided, and working them through to the other side. And the other side is all that we have wanted. We heal feelings of grief and loss and reclaim our joy. We work through the feelings causing addiction--anger, resentment bitterness, etc. and reclaim our passion and aliveness. We turn our fear and anxiety into excitement and inspiration.

Our retreats are a journey into the transformative power of love. We create a loving community through specific skill building activities. We build a safe container for deep work.

Using a variety of techniques including meditation, ritual, psychodrama and imagery, we 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!
