Recovering You: Soul Care and Mindful Movement for Overcoming Addiction (Paperback)
A UNIQUELY HOLISTIC AND JOYFUL APPROACH TO BREAKING FREE FROM ADDICTION AND COMPULSION Substance abuse issues have worsened dramatically in recent years, with alcohol and drug addiction soaring. Our collective anxiety also shows up in many other insidious ways -- from overeating to mindless scrolling to excessive online spending and more. Whether you are on the path of recovery, taking your first step in that direction, or simply feeling adrift and unmoored, Recovering You offers a lifeline to the discovery of a new and better way of being. Steven Washington shares his story of growing up around alcoholism and going into recovery for his own drug and alcohol addiction. But the heart and soul of this book is his process of guiding readers through fear, shame, and regret and into community and gratitude. Self-massage, breathing, meditation, and, uniquely, a focus on qigong -- the ancient movement practice at the heart of Chinese medicine and Taoist philosophy -- liberate, energize, and soothe. Washington designed this book to cast a warm and clarifying light on what you most need to care for your body and soul.
