The inspiration for GRACE Recovery was a result of my own life experience with addiction, 30-day rehab, many years of active 12-step participation and more recently, the inclusion of remote energy work. A desire then arose, from what I had realized, to assist others who still may be longing for relief or simply feeling that there must be more, that our experience of life can indeed be one that includes more Serenity and true Freedom.


Even though my years of involvement in the 12-step fellowship have been some of the most beautiful and transformative years of my life, it became clear that for some unknown reason, there would always be a return of some of the more uncomfortable and even painful inner feelings and emotions that I had always sought escape from through substance.


Fear, anger, judgment, despair, and loneliness for example, can be even more painful after we've made choice to no longer bring ourselves to a state of numbness or distraction whenever we felt overwhelmed in our own skin.

For much of our society, the word "addiction" brings to mind the hardcore drug user or the homeless alcoholic we often pass by on the street. However, many of us may have been guided to this type of work for there is often need to look further. The addictive structure that underlies many of the more obvious self-destructive behaviors commonly manifests in very subtle, but at best, still energetically destructive forms of dependency. Many of these dependencies are not only accepted by society in general, but also even regarded as "normal". One specific type that is often hidden in plain sight all around us is a dependency on others in one form or another.



It couldn’t see this until I realized, that apart from the obvious addictions I had recovered from I was still fostering an unexpected hidden addictive pattern – one that I could only heal through reconnecting with my heart and experiencing myself as my own Higher Power again
