Belonging - Presented by Rev. Jack Abel, Senior Director of Spiritual Care

Explore how this important spiritual dynamic functions in your recovery environment. What contexts of belonging do you participate in? What belonging opportunities call out to you? What belongings have you or may you wish to leave behind?

The Experiential 12 Steps - Rev. Zoë Hill, CPE Program Director

Through the use of experiential, tactile and practical methods, we will explore some of the 12 Steps in a meaningful and relatable way.

The art of coming hOMe - Molly Kauffman, Yoga Therapist, Wellness Coach, Personal Fitness Trainer

An opportunity to pause, breathe and be in the moment to savor a sense of being welcomed. Experience conversation, movement, and quiet moments of coming hOMe to your authentic self collaboratively. Fill yourself with love, happiness, and peace to move back into the world to live the life you have been given to live.

Uncovering the Face of Your Higher Power - Rev. Jim Garvey

The 2nd Step is frequently approached in a limited fashion - “Do I believe in God, or a Higher Power, or not?” In this workshop we will explore the underlying issue – who is this Higher Power and can I rely on it? Using theological and psychoanalytic findings we will explore the face of God in an experiential mode moving from a cognitive relationship, “Do I believe?” to a more affective relationship, “Can I trust?”

Home is Where the Wisdom of the Heart Begins - Reverend Christina Scornavacchi , A Spiritual Care Counselor

Home is where the wisdom of the heart embodies the journey of life. The participants will design their own finger labyrinth to take home. A finger labyrinth is a comforting meditation, through breathing, prayer, or a healing mantra. The participants will use their labyrinth as spiritual tool as a guiding journey by using their the non-dominate finger to trace the design. This creative spiritual activity can bring healing awareness to embrace the power of letting go and to bring wisdom of heart.
