August brings big changes to Lotus, new staff, new clients, and a brand-spanking new treatment schedule that will provide support 7 days a week! Our team is super excited, especially to introduce a whole new treatment day on Sunday which will be focused on deep connection to body, self and others.
Today marked our first Soulful Sunday, and we started the day with a gentle yoga class focused on grounding, sinking in, and bringing awareness to our connection with the earth. Super sweet and relaxing - a great way to start off our day. :)
We had lunch, followed by our weekly community support group (notice the day change from Saturday to Sunday!) which was full of deep listening and insight shared between clients and community members.
Mind, Body, Spirit was our last group for clients, where we worked on distinguishing between the different sources of information and wisdom in our lives (our own mind and thoughts, others we trust, a higher power, our inner voice or intuition, etc). While all of these sources can provide useful information, sometimes we can get a little stuck on trying to "figure things OUT" rather than "feel IN to things". A good reminder that there is wisdom already present within and without us...
We couldn't have asked for a sweeter day to start off our new treatment schedule! Looking forward to many more Soulful Sundays to come!

P.S. Our newest mentor training group, Recovery Warriors, also began today. This group will be focused on giving individuals in advanced recovery the opportunity to engage in artistic and advocacy based education in the community.
