Sat. Feb 28: Life ReScripted with Bob and Vicki
Life ReScripted is a (FREE!) experiential workshop that uncovers and clears unresolved issues that can undermine recovery. There are strong and compelling reasons why these issues persist. 

A rescripting identifies and transforms the root cause of our self-sabotaging choices & behavior.

About the facilitators: Bob and Vicki met in a 12 step meeting in the late 90's and soon started a monthly gathering with others to augment their recovery. Life ReScripted was continually modified in those early gatherings and became their most effective tool. They found they were able to do deeper work in this safer environment which resulted in less struggle and lasting change. Word spread and they were invited to facilitate at 12 step and other retreats and began hosting weekends and training others to form their own circles. Their goal is for Life ReScripted to be accessible as 12 Step programs worldwide. Training is available for those interested in helping facilitate and/or starting their own circles. Congratulations to Bob on 24 years of sobriety!
Requirements to attend this workshop: at least 3 months of sobriety, a support system and a commitment to be responsible and accountable for your actions and behavior within the group. 

Visitors/observers are very welcome and will feel very at home - no one has to participate unless they would like to. 

Workshop will be held on Saturday, February 28th, 2:00 to 5:00 pm at the Dwier Center: 392 Church St Groveville, NJ. Life Rescripted will then be held at same time on the last Saturday of each month.

Wed. March 4th, 6 pm: 12 Step Yoga!

"The Issues Live in Our Tissues!"

Y12SR combines the practical tools of the 12 Step program with the ancient wisdom of yoga.
Combining the two creates a model that truly addresses addiction and/or co-dependency as the physical, mental & spiritual dis-eases that they are.
Y12SR is a 12 Step-based discussion and yoga practice open to anyone and everyone dealing with their own addiction behavior or affected by the addictive behavior or others. This is an open & inclusive group - all A's are welcome, as are folks both experienced & completely new to yoga.
Wear comfortable clothing. Meetings are by donation.
1st Wednesday of each month at 6pm.
