The evening reflection helps us to review our day, to notice our challenges, achievements and goals. Through hearing others share their day we give and receive peer support. This group is where we discover the language and skills of recovery and community, helping us to shape our own recovery and share the wisdom that comes from it. Reflection helps us to recognise areas of need and opportunity. As themes naturally emerge, we use the wisdom of experience to explore topics and develop resources.
