His rallying cry that we must bring the gifts of yoga and meditation together with the power of the 12 Steps is timely and important.

Tommy’s honest and direct storytelling helps us to understand the power of addiction and encourages us to be open to the varying tools, both traditional and contemporary—including yoga—that can end our addictive behaviors, while also understanding the internalized trauma that is core to both our dis-ease and our healing.

aspects of addiction ourselves. Unfortunately, the field of addiction has been so tightly pigeonholed that we regard addiction as something that someone else is experiencing only because we don't have a needle in our arm or lying drunk in an alley way. We all have monkey minds and I don't believe these thoughts serve us. This is part of the genius of this author. His term of running the "frequency of addiction" nudges the reader to some self examination and brings us to experience ourselves inclusively as opposed to exclusively I.e. this is someone else's issue and not mine. I applaud Tommy Rosen for helping us to consider other portals for healing in addition to the 12 Steps such as yoga, cleansing, and proper nutrition. Even if one is or is not experiencing a classic addiction this book can assist in healing us. After all life is for all of us "one day at a time". Thank you Tommy Rosen for a sobering look at ourselves through your very creative way of healing no matter where we are on the
addiction scale. To me the point is we are all "there" somehow. A humbling read for sure. I'm glad you lived to tell your story.
In February 2015, I experienced conversations Tommy Rosen had with several teachers on his Recovery 2.0 conference (a free event). From that I knew I needed to deepen my own recovery and this book is doing that. It offers a contemporary take on the renown 12 Steps and broadens the universal application of them towards every addiction (Rosen lists the 'big six', Drugs, Alcohol, Food, People, Money & Technology and then, for those of us who are like, "Man I'm so not any of those", he wisely then defines the 'Four Aggravations" which encompass the 'Thought Addiction'.)
He helps the reader be okay with embracing our own truth: we’re all addicted in so many ways... and, as he supports the reader to be recognize this he also let us know we need to be willing to whole-heartedly choose to become and maintain our own “Spiritual Identity”, to be more, more of what we are born to be and experience (Happiness, Health and Holiness).
Rosen's life was pretty middle class-- he tells of the slow, easy, comforting slide to using and creating his own definitions that were 'fun' at the time... He then, nudges the reader, "....it isn't fun if this is all your life has become. Your spirit is asking you to do something different, to create, to express yourself as only you can, but you don't seem to be able to summon the focus and motivation. Your spirit gets squelched, and your ability to manifest much of anything is severely diminished." (p. 43)
For those of you who may have tried a study of the 12 Steps and rejected it, or maybe the meeting you went to was a turn off, or maybe you're totally agnostic, ah heck, try this. There's logic and a life experience that helps re-consider the Steps’ intentions, and how they apply to you and CAN work for you. But wait…there’s so much more (sounds like a 3AM ad, but no kidding, Rosen is on-the-mark honest).
Without blasphemy, he addresses the truth that for too many, the use of the 12 Steps is simply not enough for full and long recovery. And even if a person is 'sober', he declares, "the true measure of success is whether a person is able to find peace, contentment, and fulfillment in their life and make strides towards this goal".
Rosen’s been there…the sober-and-addicted-to-something-else-crap; the sober-but-not-happy-crap, the sober-but-living-with-‘tension patterns’. And because of being in the trenches, and pretty darn crappy ones, he became open and then guided to more healing and ultimately broadened his recovery with yoga. What I’ve come to really appreciate is how he presents the tenets of yoga and aligns these with the strengths of the Steps…and makes the idea of practice of a yoga-way-of-thinking so very LESS mysterious, far-less intimidating, and wholly attainable (btw, he has some helpful videos on Youtube).
In this book Tommy Rosen suggests things to try, offers practices and questions to work on… He is not merely saying ‘do this’, but instead reveals his own life in the pages to let us know, indeed, we have the power to change and cultivate brightness into our lives by becoming more of what the Universe intends. He acknowledges, it takes time, though for me, reading/seeing the product of his own time and growth, I am grateful to have found a new tool for my own recovery.
Thank you, Tommy Rosen for your bravery and your commitment to changing lives on a daily basis and sharing some of the most important information that I have ever had the privilege to receive. Michele Lanfrank
