The purpose of Living in Process® retreats is to learn about a way of life that focuses on healing and offers a path for spiritual growth. We have an opportunity to live in process and in community while learning to confront our addictive processes and behaviors. Our focus is on holistic healing.
Anyone involved in their own life journey who wants to participate in a supportive learning and healing environment is welcome. Recovering addicts, their friends and families, survivors of incest and abuse, healthcare professionals, ministers, addiction counselors, and other individuals involved in personal growth may find Intensive Workshops helpful in their choice and ability to feel and to live more fully and joyfully.
Participants often comment on the respectful, non-controlling, non-judgmental environment they experience and the network of support they have developed from participating in Intensives. Healing and transformation are possible!
Living in Process® work is not therapy, nor is it based on the scientific model out of which therapy comes. It is a way of living that is based on holistic science, rather than the limited technological model of western culture. Connected with traditions of native cultures, it is community-based, participatory, safe, respectful, and spiritually-grounded.
Facilitators have worked active 12-Step recovery programs and have participated in Living in Process work with Anne Wilson Schaef for a number of years. Additional support is provided by individuals participating in Living Process work and their own recovery programs.
Registration for Intensive Workshops and other information is available by contacting the primary facilitator listed below. Costs vary depending on the location and facilities and the length of the Intensive.
