How to Find and Have a Relationship with Your Higher Power

Through achievements, belongings, career, money, drugs, alcohol, and other means, we attempt to fill the vacuum in our heart that only our Higher Power can fill. Life is a puzzle, but we can fit the different pieces together within the context of the Twelve Steps, especially Step Two, to gain a better understanding of ourselves and our life purpose. What is the image we have of ourselves? Join us to explore the connection between your perception of a Higher Power and your image of True Self.

Replacing Anger with Empathy: How to Communicate Authentically with Compassion

Join us to discuss how expressing our anger, through compassionate communication, can serve as an invaluable relapse prevention tool. We are acculturated from birth to judge, demand, and diagnose one another. This approach and language hinder true connection and generate pain, resentment, and anger. We will discuss how to use communication skills to get our needs met in a compassionate, empathetic manner. You can shed the mask of anger and live a life of compassion for yourself and others.
