Yoga and Addiction Recovery: A Celebration of Healing Week of October 13-18 , 2013

$650.00 – $3,550.00 (based on accommodation type)

This workshop's start date has passed.

Workshop Details

Join us as we bring together the ancient tools and practices of yoga and meditation as a way to deepen the exploration of recovery from addictions. The leaders represent a wide variety of backgrounds and modalities in this dynamic field. They gather to share their experience, strength, and hope through the journey from addiction to recovery.
Addictive behaviors separate us from ourselves, each other, our environment, and the Divine. Yoga offers us a set of practices that directly address the range of issues caused by the family disease of addiction. Connected to our wholeness, we more readily recognize our addictive behaviors and find the inner strength to move beyond them. Through this retreat experience, we will connect our inner and outer worlds and awaken the joy and peace from within by learning how to bring recovery alive in our practice.
The mornings will begin with an asana and meditation practice embracing such concepts as surrender, letting go, acceptance, and gratitude, and each day different workshops will be offered, allowing us to explore more fully the convergence of the path of yoga and recovery. Our evenings will be filled with kirtan, speakers, dancing, and free time to mingle, reflect, soak in the hot springs, rest, rejuvenate, and connect. Through these magical five days, we will celebrate the vision for our life paths.
Everyone is welcome—all recovery, all addictions, family members, all seekers, and those who work as healing professionals in the field. There will be something for everyone. Please bring a yoga mat and a meditation cushion if you use one.


We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.
