Mindful Recovery is a podcast devoted to helping individuals who are struggling with trauma and addictions recover. Mindfulness is a research based method for dealing with anxiety and trauma. Psychological and neuroscience studies have found that it is possible to increase the growth of neuronal pathways and retrain our brains in coping with these issues. Basic techniques like learning to pay attention to our own breathing and looking honestly and non-judgmentally at our hurt places can begin to create an emotional holding space that allows us to live without reacting to the pain and begin deciding how we want to act on the world we find ourselves in. This becomes the beginning of recovery and, thus, the beginning of a new and abundant life in recovery. Whether you struggle with anxiety, mental illness, complex trauma, PTSD, addictions or a multitude of other problems, becoming mindful in the way you live is the first step along that path. I would be honored if this podcast could help you begin that journey.

    Fear and Connection: An Easter Message

    Fear and Connection: An Easter Message

    This Easter has me thinking a lot.  I don't normally share that I am a Christian but felt that it was time to step out as we discuss connection.  I want to connect with those in the Christian community still driven by fear.  Fear of other, fear of war, fear of death, fear of exclusion.  Fear is the real enemy that separates us from connection.  The real message of Easter is to let go of fear and brave connection.

    Anticipatory Grief: Preparing For the Inevitable Loss

    Anticipatory Grief: Preparing For the Inevitable Loss

    In the final chapter in our exploration of connection we actually discuss disconnection. Specifically anticipatory grief or the grief we begin experiencing knowing a disconnection is coming. Death, divorce and other forms of disconnection begin affecting us way before we actually experience them and preparing for that event can help us cross the bridge more easily. It will not save us from the pain, but it will insure we meet the loss with eyes wide open and learn what it has to offer. This episode has a personal meaning for me and we discuss how I am crossing this bridge too.
