Summer is a time to slow down and recharge the mind, body and spirit. This is especially important for those of us in the world of healing. Monte Nido would like to invite you to kick off your sandals and spread your toes in the sand for this very special summer series. Each month we will bring you a self-care based activity right down at Corona del Mar State Beach.
Join us for our kick-off event in June: Body and Soul! The heart of Monte Nido’s clinical philosophy understands the eating disorder client to be in a battle with two parts of themselves: their “healthy self” and their “eating disorder self”. Our clients often arrive a supercharged, all-encompassing eating disorder self and a faintly detectable healthy self. Our work involves helping them learn how to strengthen their healthy self to heal and integrate the eating disorder self into one whole being. In this effort, we help our clients find their true self, which we call the “soul self”. A core element in this work is our Body and Soul Group. Please join Hanan and Andie for an experiential Body and Soul Group at the beach, infused with a touch of Monte Nido “fairy dust” as we call it.
Attendees will be able to explain the concepts of eating disorder self, strengthening the healthy self and the soul self to use in work with clients. They will also be able to identify at least two techniques to implement when working with body image and resolving conflict between the healthy self and eating disorder self. Last, attendees will be able to identify at least one way focusing on the soul self contributes to gratitude and respect for the body.
“Beach Breaks with Monte Nido: A Summer Self-Care Series” with the Monte Nido Eating Disorder Center of Newport Beach team will be held on June 29th from 9:00-10:30am at Corona del Mar State Beach in California. The group will meet near the volleyball courts between Towers 3 & 4. Please park in Corona del Mar State Beach Main Parking Lot.
