This workshop teaches mindfulness, mind-body medicine, and cognitive behavioral skills to support your practice and complement any other form of addiction treatment, 12-steps, SMART recovery, or Refuge Recovery work you may be doing. Selective mind-body skill may include gentle mindful movements and other forms ofembodied mindfulness practices, meditation, imagery, cognitive behavioral skills and other.
Participants are required to attend all 4 sessions, come to sessions sober, and commit to practice between sessions.
