FIND YOUR BEST SELF men's group 2019

DESCRIPTION:
 
A five-month physical and emotional crucible for men working to overcome Out of Control Sexual Behavior (OCSB) with the guidance of a therapeutic coaching team. Your eight to ten member cadre will have a curriculum of both psychological and physical work that will be integrated toward your personal goals.There is extreme accountability and all work must be completed. There will be no-excuses accepted and participants may not miss a any meetings. If a meeting is missed you may be asked to leave the process. We meet monthly in Lafayette, CO. 
 
We offer physical training by SEAL Grinder PT  to help you prepare (and you will need to prepare) for the arduous physical portion of Find Your Best Self. Patrick Prag MA LPC is the lead coach for both portions of FYBS. He is also a certified SEAL Fit Instructor. After each physical grinder session, you will debrief as a boat team and discuss the month's assignments and reflections related to your recovery from OCSB. Both halves of this program are equally important and will require your full attention and preparation every month. You will be assigned to a swim buddy from your team who you will support you–and you them– unconditionally throughout the entire six months.

MENTAL PREPARATION:

As you have heard before “It’s mostly mental.” The number one best preparation is to know WHY you are entering this challenge. Your "why" must go beyond simply "overcoming OCSB."

  • Is it to strengthen or repair your marriage or relationships?

  • Shed a compulsive behavior, letting your best self control your actions?

  • Give energy to a healing process? Find post-traumatic growth rather than death?

  • Mark a new beginning? 

  • Enter a new place where you concretize who you are and what you want to be?

  • Know you are capable of reaching the end of yourself physically, emotionally, and beyond?

  • To push yourself forward and grab ahold of more than you have been living?

  • Get outside of yourself, put your team first, feel connected to something greater than yourself?

Spend time figuring this out- dig deep.

This will be critical to your success.
