Healing from Within: For Adult Children of Alcoholics and Others Affected by Addiction
Center City, MN
Childhood experiences form an imprint within us. For adult children of alcoholics, the imprint is often shaped by hurt and conflict. Healing is not about blaming. Rather, healing is rooted in compassion, gentleness, humor, love, respect, self-care, and staying open to learning. Through a variety of exercises and meditation, we will come to see the powerful relationship between our wounds and our spiritual awakening. Come, heal from within. One need not have grown up in a home with alcoholic parents to benefit from this retreat.
