Session 1: Workshop with Harmony Counselor Trent Burkholder
One of the hallmarks of healthy long-term recovery for many people is continuous and consistent spiritual growth. But what does this mean exactly? While other characteristic indicators of recovery, such as physical, mental, emotional, and social well being seem easier to quantify, spiritual health is much more challenging to categorize, since it is such an individual and personal matter. Another difficulty is that the word “spirituality” may imply very different actions, attitudes, and outcomes for various individuals.
People who have gone through intense periods of psychological turmoil, if they survive, often times emerge from those experiences as more spiritually focused. This can often take the form of being more altruistic, less materialistic, more empathetic, and more likely to help others in need. This tendency is a target objective of 12-step work, with phrases such as, “we can only keep what we have by giving it away,” and “nothing will so much insure immunity from drinking as intensive work with other alcoholics.” There is also a common distinction between simple abstinence from substances, and a “recovery” which implies being happy, joyous, and free.
This presentation and discussion will not define what form of spirituality a person should practice, but rather attempt to explore the role of spirituality in the recovery journey and the correlation between spiritual growth and an increase in the development of meaning, purpose, and satisfaction within a sober lifestyle.
