SOLTURA FOUNDATION Overview
Target demographics: Soltura workshop participants include individuals of all ages looking for a different way to experience their lives or seeking a new understanding of their inner self. Programs are geared to anyone who has the desire to change their personal perspective and experience personal freedom. While the motivations to participate in the workshop trilogy are varied and unique to each participant, some reasons may include:
—Navigating one of life’s transitions following a loss of a parent, a child, a marriage, a job or other form of emptiness;
—Understanding self-defeating behaviors;
-- Improving one’s relationship with self, family and friends;
—Difficulty juggling life’s daily stresses that challenge quality of life;
—Moving beyond a co-dependent relationship with a spouse or partner who is struggling with alcohol abuse;
—Gaining perspective on compulsive or addictive behaviors.
Participants are asked to complete a brief health history questionnaire during the registration process to ensure that they are sufficiently fit both physically and emotionally to complete the workshops.

Programs: Utilizing the principles of experiential education and attitudinal healing, Soltura workshops are designed using parables in which hidden truths and life lessons are cleverly disguised within simple stories. For men and adolescent boys we offer a program series based on The Knight in Rusty Armor, a book by Robert Fisher. Women and adolescent girls take their journey down the Yellow Brick Road in a series of workshops based on the well-known story, The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum. These programs offer a combination of educational and experiential exercises offered in group, individual, and community settings – utilizing music, art, drama, humor, writing, and guided imagery techniques – to create a dynamic and personally enriching experience.
The series of personal growth workshops facilitates awareness of:
-- Value of slowing down,
-- Choice between conflict and peace of mind,
-- How inner battles complicate life,
-- Influence of fears and doubts,
-- Using your authentic voice,
-- Personal beliefs, judgments and conviction,
-- Honoring yourself through honoring others,
-- Freedom in taking responsibility for yourself.
