While you may remember Theo Fleury as a former NHL All-Star, Stanley Cup winner and Olympic gold medalist, he is also the two-time best-selling author of Playing with Fire & Conversations with a Rattlesnake.
Please join the Homewood Community Addiction Services (CADS) for a one-day workshop, where Theo will bare his soul, as he shares his raw, unrefined and refreshingly honest journey through his painful past with trauma, alcoholism and drug addiction. Theo will share his mistakes, his triumphs and his new learnings, while creating a safe space for conversations on trauma and healing.
He will discuss how to overcome obstacles and practice mindfulness, and he will encourage others to tell their stories without shame or fear. In turn, he will demonstrate how we must all learn compassion and humility.
Theo’s incredible life experience, both on the ice and off, has given him a wealth of embodied knowledge on the topics of pursuing excellence and personal growth. His insightful perceptions allow him to look beyond external behaviors to what lies beneath the surface. To this conversation, he will bring clarity, honesty and compassion because he has been there and he knows what is needed.
Theo was awarded the Canadian Humanitarian Award, The Queen’s Jubilee Medallion, and he is an Honorary Chief and recipient of the Aboriginal Indspire Award. In 2014, Theo was awarded with an honorary doctorate in Science from the University of Guelph-Humber for outstanding contributions to the Mental Health of Canadians. In 2015, he received a second honorary doctorate in Laws from Brandon University in recognition for his contributions combating child sexual abuse and for his outstanding efforts to promote healing and recovery.
Don’t miss this insightful and compassionate conversation.
