Is this Program for You?

Is there an activity that you crave and repeatedly do in your life that has negative consequences? Is this behaviour impacting your family and/or relationships? Have you tried to stop, without success?

Addiction is any pattern of behaviour that you crave, and find some temporary relief or pleasure in, but are unable to give up despite the negative long term consequences of engaging in that behaviour. Most of us have at least one addiction, whether it be sugar, internet use, compulsive cell phone use, or a more harmful physical substance or behaviour, such as alcohol, opiates or gambling.

Do you want to be the best version of yourself? Join us at this immersion program led by our team of Beyond Addiction trainers. Connect deeply with 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.

Suitable for people in recovery, health practitioners, yoga teachers and anyone seeking positive change and guidance in developing a spiritual practice. The course includes a 4 month home practice program with online yoga videos and over 90 teaching clips from Dr. Gabor Maté, a 550 page manual and weekly group support.

The program dates are June 24 – July 2, 2022 with a 4 month follow-up session.
Weekly support classes and check-ins occur after the scheduled weekends to keep you on track.
