A while ago I sent you a notice about this weekend workshop for recovering from religion. I'm pleased to say that we have some space available for some "pay what you can" participants. The room and board would still be $125 but beyond that is negotiable. So get in touch soon if you'd like to come!
Here's the notice again.
LEAVING YOUR RELIGION?
It's not the end of the world! Join us at a recovery retreat.
"RELEASE AND RECLAIM"
August 15-17, 2008, with Dr. Marlene Winell
Do you feel alone in your struggle for healing? Come to a supportive and powerful weekend with others who can understand you -- an oasis from dogmatic teachings and judgmental groups. We'll rant and rave, tell our stories, discuss the issues, visualize, role-play, dance and draw – whatever it takes to think for ourselves and reclaim our lives. A joyful, empowered life is your birthright and you can start now.
WHEN: FRIDAY, Aug. 15, 7PM - SUNDAY, Aug. 17, 3PM.
WHERE: A beautiful house in Berkeley, California,
with hot tub and other amenities.
COST: $320 for the workshop, $125 for room and board. Financial need considered & options available.
TO REGISTER: Call 510-292-0509 or send an email to email@example.com. Register soon as group size is limited.
