NOURISH YOUR EMOTIONAL
CENTER OF GRAVITY
Emotional sobriety is based on learning how to deal with life on life’s terms. As alcoholics and addicts, we wanted life to happen a certain way: we wanted life on our terms, not on life’s terms. When it didn’t unfold the way we expected, we drank or used to deal with our emotions. Learning how to modulate our emotional reactions sober can help us develop true serenity and peace of mind.
Emotional Sobriety: The Path to Optimal Recovery
Dr. Berger and Herb K. are two of the foremost authorities on emotional sobriety and optimal recovery. In this program, which was recorded live in Santa Clarita in 2018, these two pioneers define emotional sobriety and demonstrate how emotional dependency interferes with our ability to achieve this important state of mind. During this day long workshop they will unpack the psychological and spiritual wisdom of Bill Wilson’s letter on emotional sobriety, explore the psychological and spiritual concepts that are related to emotional sobriety, and provide you with some tips and suggestions as to how to achieve emotional sobriety in recovery.
Twelve Step Workshop: Applying Each of the Twelve Steps to Our Personal Lives
Herb K. received the gift of freedom from alcohol February 21, 2984. In 1988, as the results of completing the Twelve Steps ‘precisely’ in the book Alcoholic Anonymous, he experienced the Spiritual Awakening. His journey includes seven years in seminary, a graduate education in psychology, and, in 1990, completion of a three-year program for Certification as a Spiritual Director. He has written three books on the spiritual journey.
These 10 DVDs cover the Twelve Steps with precise application of them to benefit your life. Led by Herb K., each DVD focuses on a specific Step or Steps, and the process or practice of using them for a variety of benefits.
A series of videos are available to purchase as DVDs or to download online. Videos feature support for professionals, individuals, and groups.
I like to think of recovery as a journey of discovery that opens up new possibilities for well-being. But only if you’re willing to face this paradox: you must experience discomfort in order to find the comfort that a life of recovery brings. I want to make you aware of some of the pitfalls that you might encounter on your recovery trek and what you can do to prevent them – or cope with them when they happen.
