At the same time I was meditating twice a day, until 2009, I drank a lot of alcohol every day. I was what is known as a functional alcoholic….until I became dysfunctional and spent a month in Passages rehab center. Since then I have learned that to quit drugs and alcohol is not enough to enjoy life as fully as we can. I learned from my teacher Tommy Rosen and his Recovery 2.0 program that it is possible to thrive in Recovery if we are able to re-establish our selves in our True Nature. Nikki Myers, the founder of Yoga of 12 Step Recovery, calls the underlying problem Co-dependency or the Disease of the Lost Self. We all have this disease and the only way to get “cured” is to rediscover our true Self (Soul or Spirit or simply pure Awareness and Stillness). Meditation is a direct connection to Self and I can help people in Recovery to rediscover their true nature, connect to it, and be free of this disease.
