Filling the Void: Sobriety & Spirituality

 Filling the Void: Sobriety & Spirituality


Hosted by Desiree Florentino 

Filling the Void: Sobriety & Spirituality is a confidential and safe space for individuals who are currently living or interested in living a sober lifestyle. Filling the Void is not affiliated with a twelve step program or recovery center, nor is it recommended to use FVSS in place of treatment or therapy. FVSS is here to inspire sober living with soulful decisions. FVSS meets at Root Mamma every second and fourth Tuesday of the month from 8PM-9:30PM.


FVSS will open with a short meditation and is immediately followed by a group discussion based upon the topic that is chosen for that week. This group is open to any individual that is currently living or considering living a sober lifestyle. Attendees are encouraged to participate in this casual format, forming intentions and setting goals, to make soulful decisions to face day to day life. Here, they will have an opportunity to share and ask questions. There is no minimum requirement of sobriety needed to attend or participate. There is no requirement of what your sobriety or lifestyle looks like, we only ask that you be respectful before, during and after the group to all participants and individuals at Root Mamma. This group is donation based to help support and hold more events like this at Root Mamma.


My mission for starting FVSS is to show individuals that sobriety is fruitful and fun. If you surrender to what the “world” has to offer, you will have nothing to worry about.
