The energy of addiction and all its causes lives in the body and mind. It is with us all the time until we do the physical work necessary to get it out of our tissues. This requires more than simply putting down drugs and alcohol or the addictive behavior we are struggling with. It will be necessary to employ a proven path of recovery such as The 12 Steps in order to help us recover from the addiction. This then allows us to pursue a deeper physical and energetic detoxification of the body and mind, which is brought about through the practice of Yoga and meditation. This process is called Recovery 2.0 and this site is devoted to it.
The 12 Steps are an incredibly effective tool to overcome addiction. If one follows these steps to the best of one’s ability, good things tend to happen. However, what has been lacking in the 12-step approach is specific instruction on how to connect to the physical body through movement and breath. The steps do not provide information about diet, cleansing, exercise, sweating, breathing or about how to tap into the infinite pharmacy within – our endocrine system. Through powerful yoga sets and meditations, Recovery 2.0 focuses on these aspects of being human. It seeks to provide key insights for people in recovery about the Human body – how to use it and how to take care of it. Please enjoy the site and take advantage of all that is provided here. If you find anything here confusing, please email me. If you find anything offensive, please disregard it. If you find anything helpful, please use it.
Please Note the following two disclaimers:
a) Recovery 2.0 is not meant to change the 12-Step program, the steps themselves, in any way. The steps already work to help people overcome addiction. Recovery 2.0 will help to strengthen one’s recovery even further by adding important information and education to the recovery process.
b) Recovery 2.0 is not meant to be a replacement for someone’s recovery program. It is meant to be supplemental only, so work your program!
Love and Strength to you on your path,
