My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Life Transitions Network, San Francisco, CA, USA
Life Transitions Network (LTN) produces 2 experiential workshops every year. All staff members have been trained by the former Elisabeth Kubler Ross Center and are very experienced in dealing with any issues presented by the participants.
We all have losses, such as dreams that didn't come true, divorce, deaths of family, friends, and pets, illness, not getting the job we desired, loss of a relationship and the constant changes undermining what we thought was a safe world. At the workshops the participants get to take a look at and begin to work through the "baggage" each of us carry that hinders our relationships and personal sense of well being.
From my personal experience, these workshops changed my life. Finally I had a safe place to express my emotions and share my losses in a supportive and non judgemental environment. When faced with a medical challenge, I could count on the workshop staff to support me emotionally. I also worked through family issues that were a burden for many years. The old song, "This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.", succinctly states the process. I was able to peel layers of old useless ideas, conclusions, and thoughts that crowded my being and got in the way of being able to experience the joy of living.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Offer the workshops more than 2 times per year. Have more therapists attend the worshop to experience the process and to be able to refer participants who may benefit.
