I have had the privilege of being interviewed for an online speakers series with 20 other respected leaders in the addiction field on the subject of shame and addiction. It is no cost to anyone who would like to join and listen to the interviews.
Learn how to heal shame, when you join me and 20 experts in the field of addiction and recovery beginning February 26, 2018, for “Exposing and Embracing Addiction” a complimentary interview series hosted by my friend Beth Osmer—recovering addict and alcoholic, hypnotherapist, and Shamanic practitioner.
Addiction is a regenerating cycle of shame. Beginning with a core belief that I am deeply flawed and imperfect which propels alcoholics to drink in order medicate the self-loathing, which in turn, creates more shame. The feeling that I am not good enough is the universal haunting of the addicted mind. The shame spiral can be a lifelong and progressive cycle. It is my belief that alcoholics die of shame and secrets long before the death of the body by addiction. Shame is the most unbearable of all human emotions and I have watched people drink themselves to death in a desperate attempt to escape the suffering of shame. Healing shame is the most effective treatment and medicine for the disease of addiction.
We need to focus on the psychological propellants behind addictive behavior, not only the substance dependency. Healing the disordered core beliefs of self-loathing and shame, we can find compassion and understanding for ourselves and begin to heal and find freedom from the chains of shame and secrets.
