If you are prone to abuse of substances or behaviors, I may be able to help you. I specialize in spiritually-based strategies for recovery focused around self-inquiry and self-awareness. BENEFITSThe insights you will learn are based on ancient and universal teachings from world philosophical and religious systems. Through self-inquiry and self-awareness methods, you will learn and experience:--Greater awareness of mental processes--Internal recognition of triggers--Meditative techniques to apply in different situations--Greater self-love--Refined personal understanding of God, or your Higher PowerSELF-INQUIRY AND OTHER SYSTEMSThese methods do not conflict with other spiritually based strategies, as long as those systems (Christianity, Islam, etc.) are applied in an appropriate way. Unfortunately, religion-based approaches to treatment are sometimes counterproductive due to the particular way that the faith’s teachings are understood. In this case, I would work with you to grasp those teachings in a more constructive way, so that there is no conflict with self-inquiry and awareness strategies in your recovery. Self-inquiry can either stand alone, or be considered a supplemental strategy for those utilizing the 12-step system. Since the 12 steps represent a universal spirituality, they never conflict with self-inquiry and self-awareness techniques. MY PROMISEIf more mainstream strategies don’t seem to be helping you enough, I promise that self-inquiry and self-awareness can open up a whole new dimension of inner strength for you—if you are willing to attend small meetings, listen, and patiently apply yourself to the suggestions I give you.
