Addiction / Recovery Empowerment
Recovery through experiential transformation.
You choose the activities for your seminar from a broad menu of empowerment tools; Fire Power seminars are tailored to your specific needs and time frame. As with all of our Fire Power seminars, participation is voluntary, since only by choosing to participate will an attendee grow. Very few decline.
- Seminars for adults and adolescents
- Seminars can be a one-time event or ongoing weekly, bi-weekly or monthly empowerment activity group
- Ideal for Residential Treatment and IOP and PHP programs
In this exercise, target arrows (not hunting arrows) are used to help people break through into a new awareness of where they want to be in life. One cannot take part in breaking an arrow and not gain a higher expectation of what is possible in life.
Steel Rebar Bending
The bending steel rebar metaphor is an exercise that helps people realize that there are things in life that appear impossible, but actually are quite achievable if one asks for help. Two individuals bend a steel rebar (yes, the kind used in concrete reinforcement) strategically placed in a very vulnerable location on the neck. This exercise teaches honoring one’s commitment, cooperation and teamwork. It demonstrates that together we can access that same power if we learn to trust one another. This experiential activity is not about strength. It’s about concentration, focus, trust and working together for a common goal.
Broken Glass Walking
This Zen exercise totally focuses you in the moment. Until recently, glass-walking was the exclusive domain of mystics and fakirs, versed in the ancient disciplines of yoga and the martial arts. The methods were hidden from prying eyes to promote magical myths about these initiated few. When a person manages to pay attention 100% on what he/she is experiencing, no part of our mind can wander off: We become the experience itself.
As dark begins to fall, participants build a fire circle as a means to offer healing and to transform energy. Each person brings something to burn that they would like to rid of their past or create for the future. They may bring pictures, drawings, or intentions written on a piece of paper for the past or the newness. If board breaking is included in this seminar, participants can add their boards to the fire before the fire lighting.
No one is obligated to speak during the fire ceremony. Anyone can participate without stating what they are releasing or calling forth. The things we address from our past or call into our future can be shared with the group or kept to ourselves as we go through the fire ceremony.
The firewalk is a powerful tool designed to help transform fear and to inspire people to do things they initially didn’t think possible. It teaches a valuable lesson about the power of the mind and the effect that thoughts and beliefs have on our experience of reality. It is a practical way of confirming our instincts and validating our intuition.
If we can empower hundreds to walk on burning hot coals, we can empower your clients to stand on their own two feet.
