An 18-session, 10 week course that is relatable and honest with a lot of depth and understanding to meet people where they are at.  A strong emphasis is placed on the importance of the “Mind – Body” connection: how our minds can affect how healthy our bodies are and what we do with our physical bodies can impact our mental state.

The course is designed to teach people in recovery how to care for themselves, how to manage unhelpful thinking patterns,  how to build and maintain healthy relationships and how to live both independently and interdependently.

The course is run three times a year in small group sizes with a maximum of ten people.

The course is for those who have faced a number of challenges:

  • Lack of confidence and life skills
  • Suffered trauma
  • Have been homeless
  • Have been in active addiction
  • Suffer from poor mental health
  • Have a criminal record
  • Have been long-term unemployed

BUT, who want to make life changes and improve their lives.
