Description

We all have addictions or maladaptive, self-defeating ways of reacting to daily stressors. Some of us reach for a substance like drugs, food, or alcohol. Others have behavioral addictions like shopping, gaming, workaholism, compulsive sex, or escaping with social media.

It is human nature to seek pleasure and to avoid fear and pain. When we do not have the tools to deal with our fears and pain, we do our best to cope and reach outside ourselves for the quick-fix as we seek relief.

With awareness comes the possibility of change, a deeper connection with ourselves and others, and ultimately freedom from suffering and addiction.

In this online workshop, Dr. Wendy Harris will help you develop a deeper understanding of the nature of addiction, and offers tools that you can begin using right now to support your decision to change and your journey to recovery.

    What People Say About Dr. Wendy Harris

    Dr. Wendy teaches Kundalini Yoga the same way she practices it; with compassion, highest commitment, expansive love, deeply rooted conviction, and pure grace. Through the yogic technology of Kundalini, she has given me tools to use on and off the mat that have strengthened and intensified my recovery from a decades-long eating disorder, and helped me prevent relapse. Through the kriya and breath-work I’ve learned from Dr. Wendy, I have leveled-up my ability to manage triggers, distress, anxiety, and negative self-talk. I credit her with her supportive, knowledgeable, fearless teaching for giving me a new, workable foundation, and deepening my spiritual practice.
