Specialty Meetings

The Yoga Recovery Meeting

Sundays at 11:00 AM – Noon EST   

Moderator/Facilitator: Kyczy Hawk

Yoga is a healing modality; it is a system of ethics, guides to providing relief from mental suffering and a way to befriend your body. I believe that adding the philosophy of yoga to the practice of recovery principles we can un-snarl the hidden wounds that prevent us from connecting fully with our selves and others. This is a discussion meeting with the last ten minutes devoted to a yoga practice: seated movement, meditation or breath awareness.

Thursdays at Noon – 1:00 PM EST

Our topics focus on codependency, healthy relationship boundaries, ambiguous grief, as well as grief after the death of a loved one. Please join us! We’d love to see you in the room!

Trauma & Recovery Meeting

Wednesdays at 8:30 PM – 9:30 PM EST

Moderator/Facilitator: Barbara Stromquist

The meeting is introduced as a group where we LEARN TOGETHER about trauma, the effects of trauma and actionable steps to deal with issues common to trauma survivors especially emotional flashbacks – as directed by Pete Walker or some other well-known, respected expert in the field of trauma or recovery.

It’s the same format as the ACA meeting on ITR where they read the Big Red Book and share about what they’ve read.

One of my gifts is the ability to present medical or recovery information from literature in a simple, easy to understand language.

Trauma has a lot of somatic (body) and brain related consequences so I can explain in lay terms what the author is describing.
