We are at it again...
So much to say in just a short little blog about what is happening with HRK! This biggest news of all is that we are joining with FAVOR Greenville as one of the programs offered there, so that means for us we have a regular room to meet in!!! So grateful! We are functioning as a support group at this time and focused less on the kitchen or meals right now while we get our feet under us at a new location. We meet as a support group at FAVOR Greenville along with Dr. Janelle Lenhoff with Evolve Psychotherapy who volunteered to join us for the support group that meets every Friday at 6:00 - 7:30pm. We run on average at 9-10 people who faithfully attend.
Three testimonies from the group:
We all crave belonging. Come be a part of a group who gets your struggle. You'll find no judgment here, only caring individuals who understand your internal tug-of-war and are willing to offer support. -Rachel
An openhearted, caring group. Find genuine acceptance, and a safe place to belong. Come try it just once, feel free to watch quietly and be surrounded by love and understanding. -Julie
My eating disorder wants me alone. I am easier to control that way. This group shines a light into the dark places of my disease. I don't have to speak to feel supported. I can listen and see hope in the faces of the people there. I hear stories so similar to mine. I am shocked they come out of other people's mouths. We are not alone and bringing ourselves into the light even for just one and a half hours can offer support and hope the whole week. Don't let this disease keep you out there in the dark all alone. -Ashley
On January 27th at 3:00 pm we will start what we are calling Mindfulness Monday. I will set up a room to accommodate for coloring or doing small crafts that teach us a new skill or even just give us a calm place to sit, learn something new, and do it all mindfully. We are very excited to add this to our offerings.
We are still looking for individuals to support us on a monthly basis, as snacks and supplies for these crafts cost a little something every month. If you are interested, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
