What is Mindful Recovery?

Mindful Recovery is an eight week mindfulness based exploration of recovery from addictions of all kinds. Mindfulness meditation has been used as a practice to free individuals from the reactivity that leads to mental agitation and stress for thousands of years. Addiction is a repetitive, reactive attempt to manage underlying and often unknown emotional wounds. We are utilizing mindfulness as the core practice to meet our inner thoughts, feelings, and emotions with a nonjudgemental, investigative awareness. We are creating space through disciplined cultivation of present moment awareness so we will have the choice to not react in our addictive patterns. We are using mindfulness to recover our own natural human tendencies towards kindness, compassion, and community. Through this 8-week course you will be given the tools and training to meet the challenges of everyday life with presence and resilience. 

This course is facilitated by Mikey Noechel, MS, and Patrick Nitch, LPC-MHSP, trained in both traditional and secular mindfulness. The group will meet once a week in person for 2 hours per session. We will also provide materials and resources based on practice, education, and connection throughout the weeks. 

This training is suitable for those who are new to recovery, as well as those who have been in recovery long term. We are open to those who are living with addictions of all kinds. We welcome all races, religions, countries of origin, sexual orientations, abilities and disabilities, and genders. We hope to provide a beneficial and healing experience to all who are interested.
