Having a pacing plan won't 'cure' your pain but it will get you up and back to doing things you enjoy, desensitize the overly conditioned pain response, bring back a sense of control over the pain by slowly building exposure and with time, help you to believe you are capable. That's pretty incredible...but it will take time, patience and practice! Most times it takes one brave step forward, and this is one big step!
The mini workshop is broken down into three lessons and each lesson takes about 20 minutes to complete. There are also the bonuses that you can work through at your convenience. It is done this way to allow for breaks because sitting for 90 minutes is just not comfortable!
