Spirituality is often described as a connection to yourself, others, society and the world around you, and for many, with a God of their own understanding. It is ultimately a dynamic of relationship. To heal addiction, which is a process of disconnection from self, others and God, people must embrace recovery, which is a process of re-connection. This presentation will explore the true nature of spirituality, how addictive thinking and behavior has replaced it, and what steps one can take to begin to reclaim a positive spirituality which is crucial to building a new, meaningful and happy life in recovery.
The workshop will be held as part of the 2014 5th Western Conference Conference on Behavioral Health and Addictive Disorders, in San Francisco, CA, September 4-6th at the Hotel Nikko San Francisco
