Addiction is about the pain of Mistaken Identity

Fascinating podcast featuring Paul Noiles. Paul has written a book called The Mistaken Identity: A Sacred Journey from Addiction to Awakening. He explains that people use their addiction to hide the fact that they don’t know or like who they are. Everyone experiences trauma and not addressing the root issues will lead to relapse. Listen to this podcast as the nuggets of wisdom and truth fill the conversation. See his Bio and get his book!!

PAUL NOILES is a unique teacher who believes all addictions are about the pain of a Mistaken Identity. The solution is knowing our innate truth through awakening consciousness. Paul writes with depth, uncomplicated clarity, courage, vulnerability, and honesty rarely seen in the world today. His raw, intimate sharing of his experiences restores hope for many in the grips of addiction. Paul is not aligned with any particular religion or tradition.

Paul has personally discovered that The Mistaken Identity is the biggest block to seeing this essence. Removing it allows a person to get in alignment with their authentic self. There is nothing to fix or change about anyone, only something to awaken to— their true essence of love, peace, and joy.
Paul has been using his MI teaching model with his clients to incredible success. His raw sharing of his own suffering and path to awakening and recovery, written with courage, vulnerability and honesty restores hope for many.

How a child can change a community, without ever talking.

During his abbreviated 22-year life, Graham Gardner was unable to speak or to walk on his own. Yet he forged meaningful relationships wherever he went. His cerebral palsy forced him to rely on other people — sometimes complete strangers — for absolutely everything. Yet he accepted his reality, lived in the present moment, reveled in relationships, and exuded radiance around him. Graham personified joy and he lived love. 

 

My interview with his father, Dr. Steven Gardner.

 

This powerful episode will move you and have you question the idea of “Quality of Life”.

 

Graham’s father, Dr. Steven Gardner, is an internist at Massachusetts General Hospital, Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and past Medical Director of the Massachusetts Special Olympics. He is a past winner of the Harvard Medical School Humanism in Medicine Award. Steven is a prominent photographer whose images focus on the resilience of people facing adversity and the compassion of caregivers. His work has been exhibited in Boston and Martha’s Vineyard, where he is a volunteer physician at Camp Jabberwocky, the location and inspiration for many of the stories in his book, Jabberwocky: Lessons of Love from a Boy Who Never Spoke (Made for Success Publishing, April 27, 2021).

New company All Sober joins the wave of new addiction/recovery solutions

Donald McDonald of All Sober and Rich talk about Donald’s years of activism in the addiction/recovery space and how his frustrations with the system have led him to All Sober. Listen as they take a peek under the hood of All Sober set to launch in October. Good stuff happening here!
Donald’s BIO:
I am a person thriving in recovery from severe mental & substance use disorders since 2004. I call myself a Recovery Activist because I understand that people experiencing mental & substance use disorders face discriminatory barriers to freedom and wellness – that the Recovery Movement is a social justice movement. I leverage my privilege & recovery status along with my clinical knowledge about substance use disorders, policy advocacy, and systems change to help rural and underserved communities create innovative programs and embrace many pathways of recovery. My background includes being a consumer of services, a provider of clinical services in multiple settings, a health policy advocate, and a Recovery Community leader. Previously, I served as the National Field Director of Faces & Voices of Recovery, the Executive Director of Addiction Professionals of North Carolina, and the Director of Advocacy & Education of Recovery Communities of North Carolina.

Husband, father, grandfather, veteran, musician, and just another bozo on the bus — views are mine.

About the company:
All Sober is an exciting new company that has been created to provide the millions of Americans suffering from addiction and their loved ones with all the connections, information and resources they need as they journey through recovery and into sober life; to end the stigma and shame of addiction; to inspire people in recovery to sustain sober lives and celebrate sobriety; and to help fund treatment for those who can’t afford it. All Sober is a Public Benefit Company and a portion of all earnings will be donated to the All Sober Foundation and used to benefit the public by helping to fund treatment.

We are proud to announce that Microsoft has committed to supporting All Sober’s mission in numerous ways — including with technology, product sales, marketing, sponsorship and PR initiatives. Microsoft will also help leverage relationships with companies to create opportunities for All Sober, involve All Sober as an addiction recovery partner in their social impact initiatives, and support the company as it launches in 2021.

On behalf of everyone involved, we invite you to become part of All Sober in any way that you can — whether it’s investing your time, talent and even your financial resources. Together, we can and will make a difference in the lives of all those affected by addiction.

Art that reduces Stigma, Heals our souls, and gives us Hope

William Stoehr paints with passion and purpose because for him, it’s personal. Bill lost his sister to the disease of addiction, and watching her struggle, he quickly learned the injustice of stigma associated with substance use disorder and mental health. His paintings portray both loss and hope all at the same time. He is able to humanize those struggling while also showing the resilience and hope that are universal. He just may be the link that helps someone decide there is hope after all. Can art really save lives? Bill is proving it is possible.
His work is exhibited internationally at universities, art centers, museums, and galleries. He is a frequent speaker and lecturer and his work has been featured and reviewed in local, national, and international media.
