The DOR offers a compact single-day healing experience for survivors for whom…

  • …attending a three-day Weekend of Recovery (WOR) is not currently feasible
  • …traveling to a distant WOR retreat site is not currently viable
  • …participating in a DOR allows an introductory prelude to attending a WOR

The Day of Recovery provides an opportunity for male survivors to learn helpful skills for healing, to safely explore their emotional experience, and to decrease their isolation by engaging in healing in a community of other male survivors. If you’re a male survivor looking for a deeper connection to yourself and other male survivors, this free day of healing is for you.

The day-long gathering will begin promptly at 9 a.m. and conclude at 5 p.m. Throughout the day, participants can expect to learn or use the following:

  • Mindfulness skills
  • Body awareness and empowerment
  • Experiential activities, including addressing safety guidelines and exploring self-compassion
  • Small- and large-group processing

These FREE DOR events are co-led by MenHealing Facilitators and expert BARCC clinical staff.

Facilitators for this event will be: Chad Corbley (he/him), Brandon Douglas (he/him), Roberta Green (she/her), Claire Geruson (they/them), Sharon Imperato (she/her), Shadi Johnston (she/her), Kenton Kirby (he/him), Ernesto Mujica (he/him), Jim Struve (he/him), and Olivia Welk (she/her),
