I want to tell you that I am taking the Recipe for Recovery on the road. I have decided that I want to visit one city per month and provide a one-day workshop on the Recipe for Recovery. This will give me the opportunity to meet in person the people I am coaching, those of you who follow this blog who I am not coaching, and other people with Parkinson’s in the various cities I will be visiting. Today’s post is a preview of where this is going.
By taking the Recipe for Recovery on the road, many more people will have the opportunity to learn the Recipe first-hand, and those who attend the workshops will be able to connect with people in their general location who are interested in going down this path — the path to Parkinson’s recovery!
My anticipated format for my workshops is:
1. To have them on Saturday’s so they are accessible to people who work Monday through Friday.
2. Have them from 10am to 5pm, broken down like this:
a. 10am -noon. Explanation of my philosophy of Parkinson’s, development of the Recipe for Recovery during my recovery, and general explanation of the Recipe and how and why it works. Questions and Answers.
b. Noon – 2pm. Lunch break, rest time. Individually meet the people at the workshops. Questions and Answers.
c. 2pm – 5pm. Demonstrate the Recipe for Recovery. Help participants understand how to do the Recipe, including modifying the exercises to meet with participants’ individual needs or physical limitations, if any.
The first cities I am selecting to visit are those where people I am coaching live. This not only will give me an opportunity to meet these people in person, but it will give the participants at the workshops the opportunity to meet people who have been doing the Recipe and to see first-hand how well they are doing with their Parkinson’s recovery. It will give new meaning to “seeing is believing.” This is exciting!
Currently, I am scheduled to be in Atlanta, Georgia on November 10, 2012 and in Seattle, Washington on December 1, 2012. I am working out the details on venues and as soon as I have all of the final details of the workshops in place, including how to sign up for a workshop, I will do another post about them. Also, I am going to create a new page on my site that will list where I am going to be doing workshops each month so you can look ahead on the calendar for a location near you. In the plan for 2013 is a workshop in Canada, in the Vancouver, British Columbia area.
Finally, I want to hear from you as I am working on my workshop schedule for 2013. If you and others in your area are interested in me coming to where you are to provide a workshop, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. This will help me plan the areas in which to provide workshops that will be unrelated to where the people I am coaching live.
I am looking forward to taking the Recipe for Recovery on the road and having the opportunity to meet many of you.
In the meantime, please do not wait to meet me to continue the work you are doing in your recovery.
“I have the power to heal myself.” And I did.
“You have the power to heal yourself.” Marie did. Pratima did. And you are.
“Together we have the power to heal the world.” Getting together at a workshop and doing the Recipe for Recovery together goes a long way toward our power to heal the world of Parkinson’s.
Today, it all begins with you. Grab onto the Recipe for Recovery, and keep your recovery alive!
You are worth it!!!
All my best,
