i wandered upon a couple of websites related to the recovery coach training i love to do. they have provided me with a renewed perspective and spiritual nourishment i hope will sustain me for another part of our journey.
these sites- from the same origin- demonstrate a respect for the changes needed in our addiction/recovery system and provide stepping stones to advance us toward those changes.
The Recovery Dragon Philosophy
Recovery is defined as getting back what is ours. For those caught in the swirl of active addiction whether the addict or the affected, the process begins with the decision to choose recovery over the ravages of obsession and compulsion. No one can ever take that power to choose away. It is ours alone. Universally. Eternally.
Despite outside sources hoping to cajole, coax or convince us, ultimately, it is only by ourselves we make the decision to pivot in a new direction. Solely. Uniquely.
Decision made, we marshal resources. We seek advice, assistance, experience, perspective – the raw materials any human uses to move forward in a meaningful manner. This is where Recovery Dragon can help an individual in his or her recovery process. Presently. Powerfully.
and to go with this aspect (hopefully) of my future i will contribute some sounds from my past. a chicago nightclub named “neo” ended its 30 year lincoln park run. i used to drop in there on hodge podge nights and it always felt like the future. now i know it was.
here is the 1st night of the 3 night reunion celebration for neo 2015. just a little bit of history repeating…
here is a copy of the list for the 1st night too. luvz me some jeff pazen and bud sweet.
