Living a new life in Recovery gives us the perfect opportunity to rekindle our creative spark.  Learning to play guitar can open up a whole new world of serenity in mind, body, and spirit.  The benefits include:

Mind

  • Improves Cognitive Function | Creates New Pleasure Associations | New Mindfulness Techniques | Self-Discipline

Body

  • Stress Relief | Muscle Memory | Healing Energy Vibrations | Joy and Laughter | Relaxation

Spirit

  • Patience | Self-Compassion | Accountability | Progress Not Perfection | Personal Achievement | Humility | Human Connection |

  • Self-Love

In this class we will be exploring beginner guitar techniques.  We will be covering everything from tuning the instrument, holding a pick, how to read tabs and basic finger style.   By the end of the 6 weeks course we want the students to be able to play 5 different chord shapes and have a basic understanding of guitar.

But above all, we will have fun, and create a new fellowship of courageous creative souls to walk alongside you on your recovery journey!
