Bridges of Wellness, a non-profit organization located in Wilton Manors, offers a new form of group therapy. “Oasis Group Therapy” combines the proven benefits of meditation with the therapeutic forces of group dynamics.
Reverend Dr. Charles Geddes, a spiritual minister with over 40 years of service, and Christopher Stults, MS, Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern at a local psychological practice, discussed their respective areas of expertise and were delighted to find much overlap. They noted, however, the lack of programs that adequately addressed the intersection of the psychological and the spiritual, and the idea for Oasis was born.
Each group meeting begins with a brief guided meditation during which participants often find certain issues rise to consciousness that they would like to discuss. The remainder of the 90 minute session is used to explore various issues and concerns presented by the group members. Oasis sessions are lively, interactive, and unstructured. The interpersonal dynamics that play out between members of the group often serve as insightful, healing experiences.
Oasis accepts new enrollments through a pre-interview. If interested, call Charles at 954-530-6006. Oasis group meetings are safe and confidential. Session fees are $20. See ad this page.
