Fireside Conversation a success!

Leave a comment

Walking into a warm, welcoming environment; this was the feeling I received when I walked into Wednesday’s “Fireside Conversations”  hosted by members of the Faces of Recovery campaign. This was an inspiring evening with four members from EDOYR’s Faces of Recovery Campaign sharing their struggles and their successes on their recovery journey.  The space was inviting with everyone in a circle connecting to what each had to share.  Naturopath guest speaker, Dr. Lorenzo Diana contributed helpful advice to address everyday stress.  Also discussed were ways to alleviate some of the physical discomforts which may linger in the recovery journey.  The evening was spirited and engaging and filled with compassion through contributions from everyone in the circle.
