Are you a woman in or seeking recovery from substance use issues, codependency, loss or other life challenges? Are you interested in connecting with like-minded and open-hearted women? We are so thrilled to announce that we are partnering with the Center for Open Recovery in San Francisco to host our next She Recovers® Sacred Pause Workshop.
Grab your favorite female friends and join us at Fort Mason Centre for Arts and Culture, Gallery 308 for a full day of radical self care and connection. The schedule is still being finalized but as part of this creative, inspirational day you will:
- Learn more about the passion and purpose of She Recovers® from Dawn Nickel (PhD)
- Be led through a heart-opening hatha yoga practice with Taryn Strong (RYT)
- Share a light catered lunch complete with opportunities to mingle and create community with other women
- Enjoy a talk by Holly Whitaker from Hip Sobriety
- Participate in the SHAMEBOOTH and meet its creator, Paula Williams
- Hear Fay Zenoff from Center for Open Recovery speak about the recovery movement as a demonstration of women’s autonomy
OUR PRESENTING SPONSOR:
SHAMEBOOTH is the brainchild of artist and interventionist, Paula Williams. What started as an idea to outfit a phone booth with a classic phone and invite people to record the things they are ashamed of has developed into a movement, with a booth that travels, a podcast, a website and more.
A graduate from The Art Institute of Chicago, Paula believes secrecy and judgment are what make shame thrive. She created the Shamebooth to bring people’s shame stories out into the open, meet them with empathy, and banish shame for good.
OUR EVENT PARTNER AND COLLABORATOR:
Center for Open Recovery (COR) is leading the charge to end the stigma of addiction by empowering people in recovery to step out of the shadows of shame and be open about their lives in recovery. By doing so, we demystify recovery, shatter negative stereotypes about addiction, shift the public’s understanding about long-term treatment outcomes, integrate our identity, and inspire greater investment, advocacy and support to tackle the disease.
COR has been an independent nonprofit based in San Francisco, working for six decades in the Bay Area to reduce the impact and consequences of alcoholism and other substance use disorders. COR’s work is funded 100% by individuals, foundations and corporations committed to being change agents and tackling the opioid epidemic and addiction crisis in our community and across the nation.
