What You Can Expect While Staying at Afiya:

 

* It's important to note that your experience at Afiya may vary depending on a number of factors including who else is staying at the house and how busy things are at that time.  Overall, our philosophy is that not all support has to or should come from someone who is working at Afiya to someone staying at Afiya.  Rather, we believe that support and healing connections can develop in many directions, including between two people staying at the house.  However, how that actually plays out at any given moment depends in the house.  Some people go to look for conversation and active exploration of ideas, while others may go primarily to get rest and quiet.  Similarly, while it is fair to expect at least some 1:1 support time during each visit, the needs of everyone staying in the house together will shape what that looks like from day to day.
