    Root Cause, Addiction and Finding Purpose with Dean Taraborelli

    Root Cause, Addiction and Finding Purpose with Dean Taraborelli

    In this episode we discuss healing from addiction the wholistic way, root causes, underlying issues, interconnectivity, passion and purpose, how to navigate these intense uncomfortable times, epigenetics, shamanism and expanding consciousness, beliefs and their power, and how to transform and choose to do what you’re here to do right now. 

    Dean Taraborelli, Founder, Administrator, Counselor at the Sanctuary at Sedona. 
    Founder of the Sanctuary at Sedona, Dean is also currently Senior teaching staff at Four Winds Society, an international school of energy medicine. His credentials also include being an Ordained Minister; a Certified Shamanic Breathwork® Facilitator; a Founding Member Society for Shamanic Practitioners; a Member of Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology; a Member of National Institute for Holistic Addiction Studies. In battling his substance abuse problem, Dean gained real expertise in being on the treatment side of rehab centers. He was a patient at many well-regarded addiction treatment institutions in the country, some more than once. He has be in over 10 inpatient drug rehabilitation centers, participated in several inpatient extended care programs, numerous outpatient and intensive outpatient programs, years of private therapy, support groups, 12-step programs, several detox programs, and numerous medication protocols. 
    While many of these worked temporarily on the symptoms of the problem, he was unable to achieve any real sustainable change. As conventional therapies and approaches failed, he expanded his search worldwide to learn about mental health and recovery approaches. Dean has traveled extensively to sacred sites in over 60 countries to study holistic health, world mythology, religion, spirituality, wisdom traditions, and indigenous healing and wellness practices. “My real shift came when I was a patient at yet another treatment center where I was reminded again of the definition of insanity, which is doing the same thing and expecting a different result. This is commonly used to describe the cycle of addictive behavior. It occurred to me that this should also apply to the treatment of addiction as well. 
    It is insane to keep treating this issue the same way and expecting a different result, which I had done for 20 years in treatment and therapy. I wanted o get well, so I paid very close attention in treatment and realized that I wasn’t the only one who wasn’t getting better. Most of the people I went to treatment with were not getting better either. I knew in that moment, that all of my years in treatment and my search for my own freedom from addiction wasn’t a waste. It was my training. My life purpose was to create a treatment process that actually worked by truly addressing the underlying issues of addiction, anxiety, and depression. This model needed to be holistic or it most likely wouldn’t work. The rest is history. When I created The Sanctuary 16 years ago, we were the only holistic treatment model available. 
    Now, the term holistic and integrative is common in addiction and mental health treatment. We were the pioneers then and still the pioneers today. It is not enough to add some holistic components to a treatment program, they need to be integrated to work. The Sanctuary remains the pioneer in holistic mental health treatment because we are always researching the latest in neuroscience and therapeutic processes.”

    Weaponizing the Law to Silence a Human Rights Lawyer with Steven Donziger: Part 2

    Weaponizing the Law to Silence a Human Rights Lawyer with Steven Donziger: Part 2

    Steven Donziger is a renowned advocate, writer, and public speaker with a focus on addressing human rights abuses and corporate malfeasance.  He is part of the team working with indigenous and farmer communities in an area of the Ecuadorian Amazon rainforest suffering from high cancer rates and other health ailments related to the massive oil pollution caused by Texaco, now owned by Chevron. In 2011, the affected communities won a historic $9.5 billon judgment against Chevron for the environmental cleanup of what experts consider to be one of the worst oil-related catastrophes in the world. Known for his “Herculean tenacity” (Business Week), Steven has represented the affected communities since first visiting the region in 1993. Steven also founded Project Due Process, a legal advocacy group for Cuban detainees who arrived in the United States in the Mariel boatlift.

    He is the former director of the non-partisan National Criminal Justice Commission that in 1996 produced the landmark study, The Real War On Crime, published as a book by HarperPerennial. Steven’s analysis and commentary on human rights, environmental, and criminal justice matters has been featured in numerous legal publications, academic journals, and news outlets.  He is the former chief correspondent for United Press International in Nicaragua, where he reported for a variety of publications during the U.S.-backed contra war. After graduating from Harvard Law School in 1991, Steven worked as a trial attorney for the District of Columbia Public Defender Service.

    He currently serves on the Board of Advisors to the Fortune Society, the largest self-help organization for ex-offenders in the United States. In 1991, Steven led a mission to Iraq of lawyers, public health specialists, and military experts to assess the impact on civilians of the bombing during the first Gulf War.  The group’s report, which found that an estimated 100,000 children would die following the cessation of hostilities because of damage to the Iraqi health care infrastructure, was adopted by the United Nations and attracted coverage in more than 400 newspaper and media outlets throughout the world. Steven lives in New York City with his wife and son.

    (Note: In July 2018, consistent with the retaliatory litigation campaign described in the accompanying video, New York bar authorities suspended Steven's license to practice law in New York. Steven is not currently practicing law in New York.)
