Despite her academic and health care background, it wasn’t until she embarked on a comprehensive dedicated healing journey from alcohol use disorder (AUD) that Jill truly embodied the lifestyle needed to heal and transform body, mind, and spirit. Jill speaks and writes about many topics, all related to emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual health. The 5 Stages of Healing is Jill’s model from which she will be offering highlights here.
The Energy of Courage
While we think of courage as something we find as life is happening, Terry and I discuss my experience with courage as something that I experienced and significantly developed in my youth and early adult life. Then, decades later, this “stored energy” of courage was there for me when I needed it most…walking away from a life of daily drinking, changing my unhealthy relationship with alcohol, and committing to an alcohol-free life.
Jill is interviewed by Betsy Byler, the host of All Things Substance, a podcast for therapists to learn about alcohol and substance use and recovery.
The key to a peaceful, happy life lies in conscious communication.
