Group Therapy - an invitation to meet life

Group therapy is the most amazing experience

Whilst I learn a lot about myself in individual therapy

And explore the possibility of alternate ways of being

It is in group therapy that this learning is magnified and my way of being is most actively transformed

With the heart of one, I may question the other’s judgment and their knowing

But with the hearts of many, I find there less space for questioning and more space for affirming

In group therapy, I let myself be held, to be heard and to grow

We are beings designed to be born, age and die in community

Allow yourself to be held in the community of group

Experience both the terror and the vitality of meeting life,

As you contemplate your plans for the new year

I invite you to add a therapy group to the mix
