Discovering our capabilities and our human potential to overcome, adapt, and, navigate through hard and uncomfortable situations is the foundation for Self-Discovery Week. We are constantly in a state of “becoming” as we explore and learn to understand our limits, strengths, capacity to make choices, and our willingness to step outside our comfort zone. Many women with eating disorders often feel stuck within their “Comfort Zone”. Still, others have ventured too far out, into the “Danger Zone”, by participating in risky behaviors or other activities that they are not yet emotionally, socially, or physically prepared for.

This week, Recreation and Experiential Therapies invites you to step into the “Growth Zone”, also known as the “Possibility Zone”. Groups will focus on challenging fears, exploring personal values, taking risks, decision making, acknowledging and sharing talents, and finding the courage to try new things.
