Hello my name is Cheryl Hollinshead, I participated in the Rutherford Recovery Fest by setting up a booth during the event. I was also Interviewed by Maggie Kavennaugh with Moving Forward Ministries during the Recovery Fest.
I have been sober for 8 years and was active in CR (Celebrate Recovery) for 6 of those years. I have utilized other modalities; to include EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy, counseling, Holy Yoga, and TSY (Trauma Sensitive Yoga). This has become an integral part of my healing.
I have recognized that the very things I needed to recover from were what I was using to numb and cover up. These things stemmed from the pain of abuse, neglect, rejection. Whether physical, sexual or emotional these things are stored and the body keeps score.
CR and TSY have been helpful in allowing me to receive healing, slow down, feel emotions, and be able to share the same healing that I have received with others. Healing and wholeness are available!
