“I have worked for over 30 years in the mental health and addictions field. This is the most comprehensive course I have ever taken. It addresses the biological, social, psychological and spiritual aspects that addictions affect. It was transformative on both a personal and professional level.” – MM
Do you want to be the best version of yourself? Join us in this 16 week program where you will be guided to connect deeply with yourself and others, cultivate healthy habits, explore the root cause of addiction, make peace with your past, gain understanding and choice in your behaviour, thrive in the present, acknowledge your strengths, and create an inspired, fulfilling future.
If you are unable to attend a Beyond Addiction program where you live, we have designed this online program for you.
The next group online program facilitated by Sat Dharam Kaur ND and other instructors begins the week of Aug 31, 2021 and continues for 16 weeks until Dec 17, 2021.
It is also possible for you to proceed through the online program at your own pace, without group facilitation.
The online program consists of 16 theme-based modules. The expectation is that you will take 7 days to progress through each module, thus gaining an overview of the program in 16 weeks. If you wish to do the program without weekly group facilitation, you can set your own schedule.
You will have access to the online course materials for 8 months after the start date, allowing you to use the materials for two 16 week periods. After this time the cost is $75 for each 4 month period to access the online resources.
Many people take the program several times – it can become a lifelong journey of self-discovery and self-refinement.
In each module there are:
- written materials to read and absorb – the manual totals over 500 pages
- yogic guidelines for recovery
- Dr. Gabor Maté video clips; approximately 90 of them in the full program
- a videotaped pranayam (breathing exercise), kriya (yoga set), and meditation which create a specific therapeutic effect to practice for each module, taught by Sat Dharam Kaur ND
- a detoxification and rejuvenation guide for the colon, kidneys, liver, lymph, glandular system and to balance brain neurotransmitters
- a weekly or 40 day home practice program
- an online virtual twice weekly support group
- self-assessment forms and research questions to track your progress
- access to an optional (for an extra fee) weekly or monthly Beyond Addiction Coach, naturopathic doctor, psychotherapist, addictions counsellor, or certified Kundalini Yoga teacher for additional support
