The Path to Emotional Sobriety: A New Freedom and a New Happiness

Presented by Candace Bahr

March 8, 2024 @ 6:00 pm March 10, 2024 @ 1:00 pm

Emotional sobriety refers to the ability to be present with all of your feelings without any one of them defining or controlling you.  Addictions and out-of-control behaviors are really about numbing pain and not coping with it. The remedy is learning a healthy coping mechanism that will get you through that pain. It’s putting an end to cravings and finding the courage to address underlying issues – emotional sobriety. 

In this time together we will look at our emotions as valuable partners in our journey to a more awake existence with ourselves and others. To know your innermost self is to master inner strength and peace; self-harming no more. Worksheets and small group discussion incorporated with lively presentations and self-care practices will be a part of our sessions as we come together. There will be plenty of time for individual prayer and reflection, Guided Meditation and Thai Chi.
