Camino de Santiago
It is solved by walking
I have walked several different stages of the Camino de Santiago since 2013. On each occasion it was a deeply spiritual, personally fulfilling, and enriching experience. It has been my long term ambition to organise walking trips for people who are in recovery from addiction, specifically those who have just left rehab (either primary or secondary treatment), and have been clean/sober for several months/years.
As well as walking approximately 25kms each day, our small group will practise meditation and gratitude daily. We will also have a Dharma Recovery, AA or NA meeting several times a week. Our group sessions each evening will utilise podcast therapy (TheraPOD). The aim is to replicate the rehab experience, as best we can, on the road to Santiago. The Camino trail is the ideal location for this venture.
The Camino de Santiago has been a profound, and often, life-changing experience for many pilgrims throughout the world, including Paulo Coelho, Shirley MacLaine, Bill Bennett, and Tim Moore, all of whom have written famous books about their experience walking it.
Get in touch if you'd like to join along with the small group I am trying to put together.
A life of Alcohol, Drugs & Gambling
On July 10th 2019, I slipped quietly in to Hope Rehab Thailand in the dead of night to finally deal with my long standing addictions to alcohol, drugs and gambling. I am happy to say that now I am over three years clean, sober and very much a man transformed by this life-changing, life-saving decision.
A Lust For Sober Life
A Lust for Sober Life is available on all major podcasting platforms. My suggestion to you is to get your shoes on and get outside for a walk and some podcast therapy.
Thich Nhat Hanh
Please, when you practice meditation, don't make any effort. Allow yourself to be like a pebble at rest. While you are walking, you are resting. While you are sitting, you are resting.
Today's values are always open to 'Change'
Good Health & Well-Being
Taking care of yourself, both physically and mentally, and taking caring of others in the community is an integral part of my philosophy.
Innovation & Creativity
MrTheraPOD believes a fresh, active and innovative approach to improving mental health is needed throughout the community.
I firmly believe in the spirit and potential of each and every member of the community to effect meaningful, long term, positive social change.
Personal growth is the process by which a person recognizes himself or herself and continually develops himself or herself to reach his or her full potential.
Spirituality can be defined as, “a deep sense of belonging, of wholeness, of connectedness, and of openness to the infinite (Easvaradoss, 2013).”
Empathy & Compassion
Learning to deal with life on life's terms and responding to its challenges in a positive, empathic and compassionate manner is key.
Independence and Freedom
Follow your own path in life. Be the master of your own destiny.
I don't know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who will have sought and found how to serve.
