Faith Finders Discussion Group
This peer facilitated discussion group explores principles of spirituality, and how the concept of a Higher Power can positively transform one’s recovery journey. The goal will be for participants, over time, to attain a positive perspective through prayer and meditation, to transform their fears into love, leading to living life in the present moment and, ultimately, to peace of mind.
The group meets weekly, on a drop-in basis, to read and discuss a variety of publications related to spirituality and recovery. Selections may include but are not limited to: The Sermon on the Mount by Emmet Fox, A Course in Miracles scribed by Helen Schucman, A Return to Love by Marianne Williamson, Just Like Jesus by Max Lucado, and Become a Better You by Joel Osteen. Aspects of prayer and meditation are integrated into the discussion each week. Materials are provided, and no advance reading is required. All backgrounds, pathways and perspectives are welcome, including loved ones.
ABOUT THE FACILITATORS: Kristen Cole-Essson and Robert Egan
Kristen Cole-Esson and Robert Egan co-facilitate. Kristen is a nurse at South Shore Medical Center and an individual in long-term, twelve step recovery who is passionate about supporting others on their own path to recovery. Robert has led several spiritually-based meetings and discussion groups in the South Shore over the past decade, guiding individuals in the practice of practical spirituality. Practical spirituality is a theory that relies on using spirituality for strength, as well as for action to change your life for the better, and to rid self of any negative aspect you wish to remove. The two facilitators have had positive feedback from participants on the format for this group, and look forward to bringing the discussion to the South Shore Peer Recovery community.
