Description

November 16, 2017 -Rise from Within-Mindfulness for Stress Management and Physical Well-being- Mindfulness tools can help you quickly re-center and gain perspective. This calmer state promotes decisions that are a reflection of who you truly are and what you want out of life.

Rise from Within – An introduction to Mindfulness is a fun, easygoing, experiential learning event. It offers a selection of practical mindfulness techniques for everyday life. These are not difficult to do and you don’t need special equipment.

If you have trouble with sitting still in meditation, there are other ways to be mindful. The variety of tools you will learn, will match any personality. After attending Rise from Within, your choices of available actions will increase, allowing you to decide which tool best fits your need. Apply your new knowledge at work, during interactions with others, even alone when dealing with a racing mind or challenging emotions. Co-Facilitator, Adrienne Gasperoni.

November 30, 2017 Acudetox (Acupuncture of the ear) for stress management and detoxification. Individuals trained through NADA apply up to five fine-gauge, sterilized, one-time use stainless steel needles just under the skin at designated points in each ear. The needles remain there 15-20 minutes. Ordinarily, groups of people sit together while undergoing the treatment. The procedure can function as an adjunct within a comprehensive treatment program that offers other therapeutic elements including counseling, education, family involvement, mutual support group involvement, and supportive medical health care. Clients in all types of treatment settings including inpatient, outpatient, incarcerated, shelters, harm reduction and street outreach can utilize this treatment. Among the benefits reported by both clients and clinicians are improved program retention, a more optimistic and cooperative attitude toward the process of recovery, as well as reductions in cravings, anxiety, sleep disturbance and need for pharmaceuticals.

The NADA protocol is also commonly referred to as: acudetox, acupuncture detoxification, five point ear acupuncture protocol, five point protocol, 5NP.

December 14, 2017 Group Music Making for Physical and Emotional Support-Drumming is a fun, evidence-based whole person strategy which promotes socialization and ensures a healthy non-strenuous workout. On a deeper level it builds bridges while fostering nurturing, support, camaraderie, self-respect and respect for others. It is not really about drumming, but uses the drum as a tool for communication and personal expression. This system can be integrated as a therapeutic strategy in group counseling sessions, support groups, rehabilitation centers, schools, hospitals, aging facilities and as importantly, self-care.
