12 stages of healing daylong
a day long journey, exploring the experience of being in each of the twelve stages of healing using SRI and other interactive exercises, journaling, discussion and time for rest and integration. the day allows the participants to receiving the gifts of each of the stages as well as for the arc of how they are all threaded together.
these days are co-led with one or more network doctors, typically done at their office. they include various reorganizational healing practices including SRI, NSA (network spinal analysis), seasons of wellbeing education as well as vision boarding and uniquely designed activities. these powerfully transformative days are great to propel the healing for people already receiving NSA and SRI care, or as an introduction for people interested in the work.
