2017 Annual Mental Health Recovery Conference: “I Am Enough” May 23-24th at the Holiday Inn Virginia Beach – Norfolk Hotel and Conference Center

I AM ENOUGH. And so are you. Right now, right here, just as we are. If you are experiencing highs and lows in your recovery, I am talking to you. Or if you are strong in your recovery but worn down or burnt out from giving too much. Maybe you are feeling great and have positive vibes and wisdom to give. We invite you all.

Our keynote speaker Beth Gager is an author and a Certified Martha Beck Life Coach. Her first book, A Rooted Mind…Saying yes to beauty, wellness and deeply-rooted mental health offers a simple pathway out of what the world calls mental illness. Her second book, A Rooted Body will be published this year. In this book, Beth shows us a way to use our power to manifest a life of freedom, awakening and fulfillment. Beth has ongoing programs where she coaches people who want to claim a powerful new story for themselves about who they are and what their medicine is for the world. She offers a group called Roots and Visions at On Our Own of Charlottesville where people can discuss their experiences with voices, visions and the mystical and spiritual side of themselves. She also has a regular inspirational blog. Her website is https://bethgager.com.
