The Brave Heart Experience (BHE)


This is an intensive 3-day rite of passage into living a mature recovery lifestyle. The process follows the contour and principles of the 12 steps of AA and the traditional “Hero’s Journey” process as described by Joseph Campbell: The Decent, The Ordeal, and The Return. It is for men in recovery who are past the initial stabilization period. THE WORKSHOP IS FOR ANY MAN WHO WANTS TO DIG DOWN AND FIRE UP THEIR RECOVERY. This process provides a strong opportunity to confront the deepest psychological fears and wounds that have driven a life of dependency and opens men up to a visceral internalization of their ongoing 12-step work.

Through a variety of powerful action methods, visualizations, and rituals of transformation, the participants become open to a true sense of authenticity and a mission of service to support long-term recovery. Follow-up group workshops ensure the smooth integration of BHE into The Last Resort curriculum.

I tried to quit a hundred times. Sometimes I’d make it for a month, sometimes two, but I always wound up back with my drug. What I found [at Last Resort] was the answer to what I’d been searching for in recovery but couldn’t seem to find. They put it all together and they put me together too!
