Understand the addictive drive and how to redirect it
Addicts have a high degree of spiritual desire. The problem is they don’t know how to approach the numinous directly and instead take destructive detours.
Dr. Ashok Bedi has treated people with addictions for decades, drawing from both Eastern spirituality and Western psychology. He views the 12 Step Program with a lens that’s practical, personal and Jungian. He describes the bargain with the devil that addicts make, and practices from ancient wisdom traditions and modern medicine to retire this bargain.
This inspiring course will help you understand the dynamics of your own addictions and those of others. Be assured by Ashok that something greater than you can restore your sanity.
