22 Teachings School of Hermetic Science and Magical Arts is proud to offer the Circle of Sophrosyne, a bi-monthly recovery group which meets every other Sunday for 1 hour at 7pm, and is open to anyone seeking recovery from engagement in an addictive behavior, unhealthy attachment or those affected by it.
First Term Schedule 2020:
Meeting takes place from 7-8, doors at 6pm. Please remove your shoes before entering the space. We will be seated on the floor, please bring a mat or pillow if you would like.
What is Sophrosyne? Sophrosyne was the Ancient Greek Goddess and spirit of moderation, self-control, temperance, restraint, and discretion, which lead to excellence of character, soundness of mind, and combine in a well-balanced individual.
Depictions of Sophrosyne were the inspiration behind the Temperance card from the Major Arcana of the Tarot.
As a group we look to embody these qualities.
What do we do? Building on the strong foundation of 12-Step Program and Traditions, we use the tools of meditation, tarot, sharing our stories, support through group consciousness, and commitment to the Great Work.
This group does not charge a fee to attend, but donations are welcome to cover expenses.
Group leader: This group is facilitated by Jorja Davis MFT who brings her experience of 32 years of recovery and her own magical practice.
