This Course will really help you find the tools and understanding you need to launch into a “new normal,” a recovery lifestyle.
Appropriate Boundaries for Safety are one of the four essential puzzle pieces of recovery from betrayal trauma.
Without boundaries for safety in place, it will be almost impossible to heal and progress in recovery. But, for many of us, the concept of boundaries is completely foreign when we first come to SAL. This course will walk you through, step-by-step, the process of understanding what boundaries you may need, why you need them, and how to implement them.
The support and guidance of an SAL sponsor will be invaluable here. We highly encourage you to use her as you go through the process of establishing your boundaries for safety.
This is an ongoing Course that helps our members work Step 11:
“Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.”
An ongoing practice of meditation and mindfulness can strengthen our ability to work all of the Steps. We become more capable of being present in our daily living, more aware of our trauma reactions and triggers, and feel a stronger connection with the Higher Power of our understanding.
Holly Lambert, the creator of these Guided Meditations, has been practicing yoga and meditation for several years and has done over 500 hours of training. She has also spent hundreds of hours teaching classes at Safe Haven troubled teen facility, addiction recovery inpatient facilities, SALifeline groups, and Utah Domestic Violence Coalition events. She has a special gift for using the art of meditation to help individuals on their pathway of healing from trauma.
For those willing to try, a regular meditation practice can be a game-changer in recovery.
