F.A.Q.

What happens after I register?

You will receive a welcome letter with some information + your first self-inquiry prompts. You will also receive a recovery resource guide to begin to dive into some of my recommended reading and listening prior our course. Access to the Private Facebook Group will come at you a week out from our jump-off date of August 4th!

What is the time commitment?

This depends on how deep of a dive you are ready to take. I estimate a minimum of 3-5 hours though beyond the scheduled lectures, asana practices, sharing circles, and meditations, Emerge is an opportunity to carve out and create your unique personal practice, whether that is 5 min or one hour. I encourage you not to “fit it in” but to dedicate space for the shift you are seeking. You can go deeper into the recovery resources such as podcasts, books, and articles as well as being active on the Emerge fb group. I really believe that we get out what we put in… so be ready to juice this experience for yourself!

There will be live trainings that will be recorded if you are unable to attend!

There is also a weekly themed 30 minute pre-recorded yoga class that you can practice along throughout the week.

What is a sharing circle?
I think it is vital for our recovery to come out of shame. By opening up in supportive containers, learning to see and be seen, we are able to heal. Our sharing circles will be a weekly safe place to get community support, to see and be seen in our differences and similarities. We will have assignments throughout the week and this is a space to share if you feel called. I want each of us to feel empowered in our own recovery so the choice is always up to you to. While there will never be any pressure to share, it is encouraged, as so much growth can come out of a little uncomfortability!
Is Emerge 12 step based?
This program is not 12 step based but is influenced by its philosophies as well as many others. We will be exploring many different ancient traditions and philosophies, as well as modern science and psychology, to find what uniquely resonates with each individual.
What if I can’t make the live class?
Some classes will be live and some will be pre-recorded. If you are unable to attend the live classes, you can access the replay at any time in the Emerge Facebook Group.
Is there a refund?
As there are a limited number of spaces, all sales are final. You will have access to all of the material and videos inside the Facebook Group and you will be able to revisit the information at any time throughout the course and after the course.
Disclaimer: No program has a sobriety guarantee. This doesn’t replace the vital detox programs that some may need, professional therapy, or in-person community support.
Emerge may be stand-alone support or it may be a supplement in your recovery tool box. Each of us has a unique recovery journey.
