Event Description

The 12-Step Program (based on the 'Big Book' from Bill W) sees Addiction (Dis-ease) as a Spiritual Malad (based on the "Big Book"by Bill W.) sees Addiction (Dis-ease) as a Spiritual Malady
Yoga says Dis-ease is Spiritual Ignorance
Ayurveda sees Dis-ease comes from forgetting our true nature is spirit

For those familiar with any 12-Step Program, the most remarkable aspect of these is that only the first of the twelve steps mentions the addictive substance or act. Sobriety/ abstinence is described as a "daily reprieve contingent on the maintenance of our spiritual condition". Our opportunity for genuine spiritual fulfillment is strengthened when we weave together the ancient wisdom of Yoga and Ayurveda with the practical tools of recovery programs. Yoga of Recovery® views the problem and the solution from the perspective of Mind, 
Body and Spirit.

Hatha Yoga for Recovery 12:30-1:40pm
Develop the body, broaden your mental faculties and spiritual capacities. All Levels
12-step programs propose a spiritual remedy and only offer a little advice for the physical dimension of healing from addition. One very important aspect of this is Hatha Yoga - the asanas (poses suitable foe all levels) and Pranayama (breathing exercises) and conscious relaxation. All this helps to develop not only the body, but also to broaden mental faculties and spiritual capacities. Yoga exercises improve the health of the pine and aid in proper function of the internal organs, restoring health and balance to the entire system. 

Open Meditation & 12-Step Meeting 1:45-2:30pm
Any 12-stepper welcome.
Our meeting focuses on the 11th Step:
'Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, as we understood him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.' 
Join Deanna for an afternoon of movement, breath, meditation, prayer and recovery. 

$20 advanced registration, $25 at the door.
