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.

The hotel should provide an easy and comfortable experience with convenient parking and all lodging, meals and events in the same building. In order to keep the registration fees as low as possible while using a hotel, the Conference will be one day shorter. We will begin at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, May 23rd and end at 4 p.m.  on Wednesday, May 24th. For those traveling from a distance, rooms are available on Monday and Wednesday nights at a special price.
