"Early in our recovery journey, we focused on healing. Further along in our recovery, it's possible to embark on a new chapter, but often we feel stuck. At times, we wonder...how do we create the breakthroughs we want? With a mindfulness practice--meditation and other habits of awareness--we develop the courage to look within and around ourselves. As we hold space for ourselves, we find the light within that can spark change, personal growth, and self-compassion. Mindfulness is an irreplaceable part of the health and healing toolkit because it illuminates our true selves; as a result, it illuminates our recovery. With this book, Beverly Conyers gives us an approachable mindfulness book with carefully designed reflections and practices that set us on a path forward. Her insight guides our way whether recovering from compulsive habits, substance use, unhealthy relationships, behavioral addictions, anxiety and stress, workaholism, disordered eating, process addictions, or mental health and emotional challenges--and whether we follow the Twelve Steps or not"-- Provided by publisher.
