    How to incorporate the recovery steps into your yoga practice.

    in Self Help

    In my new books, Building Blocks of Recovery, the Deluxe Edition and the 2nd Edition, I break down the levels of healing with you.  This week we will be discussing the "I AM" level and why having yoga in your recovery practice is so important.


    I have never known my recovery without yoga and the practice has helped me to learn more about integrity and honesty than I could have learned on my own.  I learned how to be in community and yet make sure my needs were met.  It was this visceral experience that helped me to become the woman I am today. "A simple woman who works a simple program".


    I would love to hear from you.  Please email your questions to me at buildingblocksofrecovery@gmail.com or give me a call at 3:30 PM PST.  It will be an honor to be of service to you and answer your questions!

    TREATMENT and RECOVERY: The Therapeutic Community (TC)

    in Self Help

    Show Topic:  The everyday goals of the TC are compassion, achievement, discipline, and accountability / responsibility achieved through community life based on a social learning model, and created in formal and informal settings. The beliefs that are essential to the TC are that a person can change, and that a group can foster this change.  The individual must at some point take responsibility, but going through the motions is ok as a stopgap measure until the beliefs are integrated. We'll discuss the five core concepts of the TC and the many tools used to facilitate them.
