Event description

Description

Join John Donovan, Men's Recovery Director of West Coast Recovery Centers, for a unique, empowering, and interactive, personal development workshop:

(1) Learn about the root cause of addiction, violence, and avoidant behaviors.

(2) Effective techniques with resistant individuals.

(3) Discover what it is that you really want.

(4) Demistify the behaviors that stand in the way of you getting what it is that you really want.


“I met John while incarcerated in the Sacramento County Jail and spent nine months in classes with him. In that period of time, I learned more about who I am as a human being than I had in my previous 48 years of living. Through his compassion, understanding, and willingness to see me as a human being that holds intrinsic value, he helped me create the possibility of loving myself. His teachings have inspired me to also become a group facilitator using his teaching methods. This has given me a career path and, indeed, a way of life that supports my dreams.” -Daniel Gutierrez

How Do I Know if this Workshop is for Me?

Have you hurt someone you loved, regretted it, and did it again, usually in the same way?

Have you ever been in an argument and, in the middle of the argument, discovered that you were on the wrong side of the argument, but you continued to argue anyway?

Have you ever been in a situation, and a small (or not so small) voice in your head said "stop, what are you doing?" but you found that you couldn't or wouldn't stop?


If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, this workshop is for you.


"In every encounter, John speaks from a profoundly deep and other-worldly place filled with compassion, insight, wisdom, and humility. Whether working with me one-on-one, on the phone, or in a workshop, John has been and continues to be a strong, no-nonsense supporter of me and the Truth of my Being. Without John and his powerful, life-changing work, the shy person that I once was wouldn’t be providing workshops of my own."

-Joanne Noll
