I am still grieving and unable to cope peacefully with the loss of . . . my parent, my spouse, my child, my relative, my job, my financial independence.
I was overlooked and often neglected by my nuclear family. Or I felt abandoned and rejected, set adrift to find my own way. I want to plant roots, to find an anchor of security in my life; I need validation and support on my life's journey.
I have not ever been able to fully express my creative impulses . . . to "speak out" and be recognized. Or I need to find a balance to the constant need to make money; to calm and center my busy life.
I have fears and resentments that plague my daily living and often set me up for non-loving thoughts and behaviors. The actual pains of my past are still affecting daily interactions in my job and homelife. I need a program of releasing these obstacles to inner peace.
I cannot peacefully cope with my job and my family. They are causing me unbelievable stress! I need a retreat with time for myself and my needs!
I really need a “compass” to guide my life . . . an anchor to give my life purpose and meaning. I often get this feeling inside, that I am not doing anything that really matters!
My traditional recovery meetings are not as powerful for me anymore. I have stopped my addictions, but "something" is still missing for my long-term emotional sobriety.
I am tired of trying “quick-fix” solutions to my life. I need an on-going, holistic program which empowers me to create my own inner peace without false expectations.
