Recovery Conversations are a series of online talks and discussions with experts in the three areas that we use as lenses for our addiction recovery work – Nature Connection, Mindfulness and Creativity. These free talks are open to everyone, whether in recovery, or not. You might have participated with us already, be curious about what we do, or are simply interested in the topic of today’s talk. You’re welcome to join, and we look forward to connecting.
