Authoritarian religious training can seriously impact your ability to live a full life. Recovery involves reclaiming your right to your own thoughts and feelings. But it's not easy and leaving one's faith often creates intense feelings of confusion, grief, anxiety, and anger. Moving on can be difficult if the issues are not clear and you feel alone in the struggle.


This workshop is designed to support you in this process of healing and growth. The weekend is a powerful group experience of sharing personal history, examining key issues, healing activities, and exploring new liberating concepts. We'll use dance, art, role-play, guided imagery as needed. . .and we'll have fun too.


To register, send an email to recoveryfromreligion@gmail.com with your contact information, or call 510-292-0509 Register soon to save a place. Financial need will be considered.

I'm on her mailing list and got those notices, too. I wish I lived near enough, or was rich enough to make the trip, to attend. As it is, I make do with this type of forum.
