Are your services only for people in pain?
Our retreats have been developed specifically for people living with pain in order to empower them with support, skills, and strategies to live well.
We have workshops for both people living with pain as well as for pain practitioners, though. For people living with pain our workshops are like mini-retreats. For practitioners we provide patient insights into the lived experience in order to help facilitate communication, understanding, and treatment.
What kind of pain do you treat?
We do not treat pain at the Endless Possibilities Initiative. We provide engaged learning and sharing opportunities that empower people with pain to live well no matter what is causing their pain. But we are not treatment, we are about living well strategies.
We do sometimes have therapists as members of our staff during our retreats, including yoga instructors, physical therapists, rolfers, massage therapists, life coaches, counselors, personal trainers, and other professionals, but their capacity in these retreats is to empower people to understand their pain and themselves better and to help them learn skills and strategies that enable them to live well, no matter their current circumstances.
