All Kinds of News for October 04, 2017
Ten professionals came together on Thursday, September 7th to embark on an experience unlike any other. After enjoying a meditation then dinner perched atop St. George, Utah at the Cliffside Restaurant, the group reconvened early Friday morning ready for hiking and camping “Evoke-style.”
The professionals came from consulting, intervention, life coach and treatment program backgrounds, and learned how to set up shelter, bust a fire, and more during their journey. They also had the opportunity to reflect, share, listen and meditate, to get a better feel for the Evoke client experience.
Attendees especially enjoyed lunch and conversation with a young adult group and adolescent boys group. They stayed the night in the field, listening to nearby wildlife and soaking up the wilderness’ beautiful serenity (and just a little rain!), then hiked through their stunning surroundings on Saturday morning. The group’s journey ended with writing special personal messages on cloth, then hanging these on a “Hope Tree.”
“Every detail of the trip was executed perfectly,” said attendee Rudy Novak from Turnbridge Addiction Treatment Center in New Haven, CT. “I appreciated the chance to meet with staff and clients in the field and participate with them in groups. They were engaged and welcoming to us as we entered their sacred space. The beauty of the natural environment and the love of the staff gave us a great opportunity to grow as individuals and as professionals, getting to know one another and ourselves authentically.”
“The Evoke Professionals Weekend was truly soul-filling and inspiring,” added Felicia Montiforte Kleinpeter of St. Christopher’s Addiction Wellness Center. “The whole staff took such care to provide us everything we needed to feel safe, comfortable and cared for. On top of that, they all were warm, loving and joyful. Their true dedication was apparent from the way they connected - to us, to each other, to the clients. My time in the field was so enlightening and I deeply felt the benefit of this experience. Sharing this Evoke adventure with colleagues and friends made it extra special.”
Evoke Therapy generally offers Professional Weekends in the late spring and early fall. For more information, contact Kristen Hayes, Director of Marketing & Outreach, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
