For the past 8 years we’ve been coaching people and their family members through the addiction recovery and psychospiritual growth process. Over time we have seen the immense power that coaching provides when people are ready for real change, willing to put forth consistent effort and intention, and needing a dedicated guide to initiate and maintain the process of personal transformation. Yet, as powerful as the coaching relationship is, we have also seen that other types of connection, accountability, and camaraderie can greatly increase the odds that someone will stay true to their goals and make real, lasting change.
In the traditional recovery industry, this need is met by 12-step groups such as AA and NA meetings, and while many people benefit from these meetings, they are not for everybody. In the world of underground psychedelic use and above-ground psychedelic retreat centers, people usually have integration circles or activities after their medicine journeys, but these are often only 1-time meetings or very short lived. The truth is, people who are initiating a process of genuine change- whether it be for addiction recovery or psycho-spiritual growth- need a consistent place where they can “find others” and feel community and kinship with people who are on a similar path.
At Being True To You, our answer to this deep need for community and accountability is our Group Coaching program. These weekly group calls take place over the Zoom video conferencing app, allowing people to access by phone or by the internet for video and audio or audio only. Each meeting is lead by a Being True To You certified coach, and attended by people who are in our coaching program, those who have signed up for a Group Coaching subscription, and often other Being True To You coaches. Over the years we have found that these weekly virtual meetings are profoundly impactful, they create a safe space for people to share, be vulnerable, meet friends, learn new things about recovery and integration, and feel that they belong to a larger network of support.
Many of our Group Coaching calls have been going on for years with great success and a dedicated community of attendees, but starting Fall we are very excited to be expanding our offerings by starting new themed classes, which are listed below. Keep in mind that anyone who signs up for BTTY coaching or the Group Coaching membership can attend as many classes & discussions per week that they want- that’s 8+ hours a week or 32+ hours a month with our current schedule, which is bound to grow even more in the future.
