Reframe mental illness as a journey of challenge and hardship worthy of esteem

This interactive workshop invites those with a mental illness, family and friends, and providers of mental health services to experience a revolutionary, positive view of the spiritual path that is available to all who have encountered the challenges and stigma of mental illness. Through a mix of presentation, small-group sharing and reflection, this workshop aims to help participants reframe mental illness as a journey of challenge and hardship worthy of esteem, as well as to define mental illness as a sacred journey with deep meaning and growth opportunities. Topics will include dealing with losses and grief, the Hero’s Journey, recovery strategies and gifts of the journey.
