The Self-Forgiveness Handbook – Thom Rutledge
“Even though a sense of self-worth is generally considered essential for psychological survival, few of us are ever taught the importance of maintaining a positive, loving, and respectful relationship with ourselves. In fact, more often than not, we are actually discouraged from learning how to feel self-compassion. Instead, we are told that to care for ourselves is selfish, even sinful.”
Stage II Recovery – Earnie Larsen
Sustained abstinence from an addiction is only the first stage of recovery; real recovery begins with Stage II–the rebuilding of the life that was saved in Stage I.
Stage II Relationships; Love Beyond Addiction – Earnie Larsen
“Treatment taught me how not to drink. It did not teach me how to live.” Just abstinence alone does not give us a healthy, full life. Through Stage II Relationships: Love Beyond Addiction, we will discover what we need to do to prepare ourselves to have healthy relationships as we enter into the next stage of our recovery.
* Tear Soup: A Recipe for Healing After Loss -Pat Schwiebert, Chuck DeKlyen (Grief & Loss Group)
Some cooking requires that you measure ingredients exactly. But making soup is different. Soup making is an art, and you are the artist. Improvising as you go, your only goal is that the blended creation will both satisfy your hunger and soothe what hurts you.
“What’s true about soup making, is also true about grieving.”

Embracing Fear – Thom Rutledge
It’s Time to Take Back Your Life
Fear takes many forms — dread, panic, anxiety, self-consciousness, superstition, and negativity — and manifests itself in many ways — avoidance, procrastination, judgment, control, and agitation, to name just a few. Whether we are afraid of the dark or being alone, of failure or commitment, of public speaking or flying, fear dominates our lives, affecting nearly every decision we make.

Women’s Co-Dependent No More – Melody Beattie (Thursdays 4pm-5pm)
