for Women in Recovery
with Kate Peppard of Highland Yoga
Friday - Sunday, October 20 - 22, 2023
Workshop Fee: $500 all inclusive
Day to day life can take a toll on us, especially during these days of social media overload, pandemic impacts, and a seemingly never-ending onslaught of injustices. Often these worldly experiences can feel especially taxing for those of us impacted by addiction—whether our own or someone else's. This workshop is a respite from that bustle and an immersion into recovery-centered self-care.
Wellness Weekend is for people who identify as women and who are impacted by their own addiction or/and the addiction of others. A workshop for women who want to create space in their minds, hearts, and bodies by moving with intention, sitting in silence, relaxing in nature, connecting authentically with self and others, and reveling in the serenity that arrives from diligent, loving self-care. Set your mind spiraling upwards by connecting to your true self and your higher power (as you understand it), immersed in nature, breath-centered movement, and all-recovery meetings.
What to expect: yoga, recovery meetings, opportunity for time in nature, delicious and healthy food, art projects, and plenty of space to journal/reflect/rest/do step work.
You do not need yoga experience to join us, nor do you have to be actively working the steps to attend. However, we do ask that you have 90 days of sobriety before applying.
