An Ending and a Beginning

Eighteen months and 87 articles later, the Creative Codependence Blog is taking a break. I've loved writing this blog and will continue to teach and write about codependence but starting tomorrow, May 23, a new blog takes its place:The Interdependent Life
Join me as I continue to explore creative ways to live life — ways that respect open and honest communication, the mutuality of need and the boundaries required to serve us in good health. As always, I welcome your comments.

For ease of searching, I've listed all the Creative Codependence articles by month below.

Stay tuned for The Creative Living workshops this fall:

• Creative Codependence™: Getting more Out of Life
• Interdependent Living: Mutuality, Respect and Self Leadership
• Awakening to Boundaries: Taking Care of Self

And... ARC Bodywork sessions are available. Go to to find out more or send me an email to get on my mailing list. Look forward to hearing from you, Jo-Ann
