After a breakup, we often experience disconnection and isolation. And yet following a heartbreak can be a sacred time of transformation. The path toward healing requires us to express and release the pain not only through our thoughts but also through the body so we can lift our spirit. It’s possible to make something beautiful from this loss.

  • Develop compassionate awareness of the struggle you’re experiencing and identify where you’re holding the pain in your mind and body.
  • Let go what is no longer serving you. Express and release the anger, and hurt. Break free from old habits and patterns to discharge the pain through your mind and body to lift your spirit.

For: Anyone who is dealing with heartbreak, whether it was 5 months, 5 days, or 5 years ago. Ideal for therapists, coaches and counselors who are looking for new tools to work with their clients.

In our process of recovery, there are many painful emotions beneath the surface. We may want to avoid the pain or try to think our way out of the problem. But when feelings aren’t fully expressed, they get stuck in the body.

If these issues aren’t expressed, it can lead to ongoing struggles, anxiety, depression, and relapse.

  • This empowering workshop will help you address the struggles in the mind, express and move through the shame, guilt, sadness and regret to release them from the body and develop a deeper spiritual connection to a power greater than yourself.  
  • Through connection to self and others, we create the safe space to release and let go of the pain through movement, sound, yoga, journaling, and connection techniques.
  • Begin a new path to recovery on a whole new level and learn some powerful tools that you can integrate in your daily recovery practice. Develop ways to find more liberation and joy in this new empowered path to recovery.

For: Anyone recovering from any addiction and also for counselors and sponsors who help.

Anger is a natural human emotion. Suppressed anger can lead to anxiety, outbursts, guilt, emotional shutdown, bitterness and dis-ease.
