Recovery Dog: is a kind and playful boy. Unfortunately he has a congenital eye disease called progressive retinal atrophy, which basically means he's going blind. So he may seem a little jumpy and skittish, but just try to approach him from the front, so he can see you coming. He loves pats and snuggling on the couch.
First Mate: I have been in recovery since 2012. I look forward to sharing my experiences and hope with all who come to Rainbow Lodge.
Facilitator: I knew I wanted to develop programs for Rainbow Lodge from the first moment I saw it. Not only is the water healing and nature serene, but the Lodge is also a rare space that encourages letting go the business that consumes our lives.

Recovery Dog: is a big and lovable boy. Voted the friendliest dog on the lake three years running. He will try to convince you that he hasn't eaten in days, but don't believe him.

I am a lively and experienced group facilitator and coach. I work in an oppression informed manner. I love watching people and groups make gains towards their goals, and I am present and accountable for the setbacks. I work from a heart centered approach which allows for individuals and groups to gain their self-identified autonomy over the change they want in the world.
In the recovery skills development of the program, I have added Mindfulness Practice and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy components. These added elements help round out anyone's recovery practice giving a deeper connection to self while adding a coping skill set for life issues. I believe that because we are complicated people we need multi-faceted approaches to recovery and healing.
Captain: It is my wish to give back and to share Rainbow Lodge and its beautiful surroundings with the recovery community. Rainbow used to be my place to isolate and drink. Since 2012 I have been changing the memories of Rainbow lodge. The lodge is now a place of recovery. I look forward to the official opening of the Rainbow lodge Recovery Retreat. I hope the summer of 2017 is filled with smiles, laughter and hope.
