Genesis Associates Alan and Amy Muia worked for many years as chaplains in the county jail with struggling and addicted individuals. For the past seven years, they have served as the founders and directors of New Earth Recovery, a residential recovery program in Mount Vernon, WA, where they oversee three recovery homes utilizing Genesis tools. Holding advanced degrees in education, they enjoy teaching the Genesis principles in congregations, agencies, and community groups, and they feel passionate about helping others move toward freedom from shame, isolation, and addictions of all kinds.

Join us for this full Genesis counselor training, taught live by Genesis Associates Alan and Amy Muia. Hosted at Warm Beach Camp in Stanwood, WA, February 25-28, 2019.
In the Genesis counselor training, we explore the roots of destructive patterns that keep others—and ourselves—trapped in cycles of bondage: workaholism, food, anxiety, codependency, sex, shopping, alcohol, porn, substances, and other self-comforts.
We'll tackle questions like: How do compulsions function in the brain? Why is it so hard to get free, despite our promises and resolve? How do false beliefs contribute to our stuck behaviors? How do destructive patterns get started? What's the role of trusting relationships in healing? How can we get free? And how can we best help those who are struggling?
The Genesis counselor training is designed for lay persons, pastors, or agency/ministry workers who want to take individuals through the one-on-one Genesis process. It is also open to those who want to explore their own addictions or stuck places; family members or friends who want to gain a greater understanding of why their loved ones are struggling; and anyone who wants to better understand how addiction works.
This course runs Monday-Thursday (8:30-5:00). Participants also complete homework in the evenings. The training cost is:
$495/person for early registration (two weeks prior to the training)
$545 for late registration (fewer than two weeks prior)
$275 for alumni (those who have completed the full counselor training before)
The course venue is the beautiful Warm Beach Camp in Stanwood, WA. We'll soon have details on lodging and meal prices, for those who desire to stay at the camp. Commuter options also available. Check back soon for more details, or email info@NERecovery.org to be placed on an update list.
At New Earth Recovery, we offer and promote The Genesis Process, a faith-based relapse prevention process for finding healing from the root wounds and traumas that have contributed to addictive and destructive patterns. At the heart of Genesis is the question, "Why do I do the very thing I don't want to do?"
Our residents say that they've never seen anything quite like Genesis--a group and individual journey that sheds light on our "stuck" patterns, helps us move toward our fears, connects us with God, and offers lasting change. We offer Genesis in our recovery homes, and help promote Genesis in churches.

One of our core values at New Earth Recovery is building bridges between divergent worlds. We seek to connect those on the streets with those in the mainstream churches by promoting dialogue, consulting with pastors and congregations about how to make churches safe for those struggling with addiction, and equipping congregations to walk alongside those in recovery.
Alan and Amy Muia, New Earth Recovery Directors, offer addiction and recovery seminars to inform; build bridges; promote healing; raise awareness about how addiction works and its impact on individuals, families, and communities; and reawaken hope.
