My story of addiction and the solution. Speaking to a group of professional men on 07.22.12

This is my story, but its so not about me. After decades of severe addiction, I share how I found a new state of consciousness, gratitude, self love, peace and oneness. This AA meeting I was invited to speak at, is considered one of the best meetings in Tucson. I highly recommend this meeting, the recovery time of this group is incomprehensibly long. BUSINESS & PROF MEN’S MEETING (Men)
Discussion, —- (C) (NS) (WH)  University Medical Center Cafeteria Rm C, 1501 N Campbell Ave, Tucson, 85724

  1. I like your tag line. I too think meditation is missing link in recovery (in life for that matter). Would be honored to have you read my book. “Sober Identity: Tools for Reprogramming the Addictive Mind.” If funds prevent a purchase I am happy to forward a comp copy in exchange for an Amazon review … Love your stuff and look forward to learning more about what you do. With gratitude for supporting those of us in recovery.
    Lots of love, Lisa Neumann

  4. Listened to your speech. Really great. I primarily see sex addicts and their partners. Carnes trained. Love Pia Mellody, Read facing love addiction once a year at least… Run 2 groups , one for addicts, the other for partners. Will play this in the addict group. Meditation is where it’s at. along with yoga and a few other tools. thank you.
