Treetop Women's Recovery House is an intimate environment in which women struggling with addiction can receive comprehensive, holistic treatments in a peaceful, residential setting that prioritizes compassionate care. Spirituality and self-examination are emphasized as fundamental tools for fostering personal growth and lasting recovery. Meditation, yoga, 12-Step work, prayer, and contemplation are just a few of the tools utilized to guide clients into attaining self-awareness and achieving their recovery goals.
My personal path of recovery has included such things as three decades of martial arts practice, several episodes of psychotherapy and participation in 12-step programs. It also included a lengthy period of spiritual searching, which culminated with my beginning Buddhist meditation practice in the early 1980s. Finding deep rewards in Zen Buddhism, I have continued practice to the present day. Zen has become one of the major foci of my life, and I am now a senior priest and teacher. While living in Arizona for several years, I also studied and practiced Native American spirituality with two teachers and participated in numerous spiritual ceremonies. That too has been an important influence, particularly on my close affinity with the natural world.More
I have a degree in Holistic Health and have a strong interest in complementary means of healing. I trained in myotherapy, structural integration and rolfing at the Southwest Institute of Healing Arts. In addition to my current duties at Treetop, I maintain a private bodywork practice, Dragonfly Structural Integration in Augusta, ME. I am also very glad to be able to offer the women at Treetop the structural integration work as part of the healing process during their stay here. I am inspired by seeing the courageous work done by the women in the Treetop program. Treetop’s utilization of the Matrix of Connectedness model, addressing every level of the women’s being, is consistent with my health and bodywork training, as well as mirroring my own healing process, which has included experiences at every level from physical through spiritual. I feel privileged to be a part of this wonderful house.More
