About Living CLEAN
Living CLEAN requires one to be able to communicate freely and clearly with oneself. It also requires a degree of honesty with yourself. There is no sense of being involved unless we can seriously be honest with ourselves. So often we become so adept at lying that we lie to the one person who matters the most: ourselves. So we must ask: Am I being Authentic? Am I living the life that I should be living? Do I LOVE what I do every day when my eyes open up and my feet hit the floor. if not- What do I need to do to live my best life? How can I live Authentically?
The Living Clean Personal Program
The first point I want to make sure that we are all clear on is that I am not a counselor. I have had some training in counseling and a lot of training in psychology over the years as well as experience in working with addiction and deriving Careplans to assist people through recovery. But I am not a counselor. I don't bill for services as a counselor, or counsel people. I do write programs for recovery. The program that I have posted on this website is called Living CLEAN. Choosing Love Everyday, Always, and Now. The reason that I have chosen Living CLEAN for this website is that it is the icing on the cake so to speak. It dots the "i's" and crosses the "t's". It is a Living plan for Recovery. People get so overwhelmed yet they are confident that they will never go back to using once they hit certain milestones. And it's just not true. We all know in the back of our minds, covered in dust is an ugly person that we don't ever want to see day light again; but they are there. Waiting, Watching. Hoping for that chance. And 15 years from now they creep to the forefront and out they come- slathered in anger, spitting up hatred and spewing the foulest of memoirs of years past. The entire family is sure that Satan has just sprung from your your soul, and if you don't do some damage control pronto- there's going to be consequences. Maybe lose your family, your job, your business. Once that self deprecating shift takes hold you are simply screwed. Boy I wish you would have maybe did some self preservation, or focused on living CLEAN. Once we get to that point turning around is hard, so it's a lot easier to do routine maintenance. I know - we are really really bad at self care... there will be classes online here to help you check yourself and keep your progress in forward motion.
The Living CLEAN Workshop
Living CLEAN will start over the next few weeks. It is a workshop that will be made available to members for minimal cost. There is a charge to cover the cost of my time,, materials which you will receive electronically and workbook discussions. There will be videos posted so you can review the materials and live class times that are being held for question and answer sessions if you need them, otherwise questions can be emailed to me.
The materials are interactive and are meant to stimulate discussion, and assist you with making decisions in your life to maintain your sobriety. We will discuss real life scenarios and try to map out what the best way is to manage situations. We will review meditations, encourage healthy eating and share successful tips to get us on a steady schedule for daily living. Register below for the workshop, the date is subject to change.
