The Most Challenging Talk I Ever Gave

The gift of recovery means so much to those of us who have lived through painful times--especially during holidays that evoke so many memories.

Nobody wants to live in the past, as the saying goes, but many of us live “by the past.” That is because during painful times we often form beliefs that are distorted, limiting, self-defeating – and simply not true. Then we continue to live by those beliefs without knowing it.

Finding and changing those beliefs opens doors we never knew we closed. Then miracles can come in.

So I took the exercises I developed for a seminar, insights from participants and my experience with Adult Children of Alcoholics and put it all together in a book.

“Travelling Free: How to Recover from the Past by Changing Your Beliefs” is back in stock after some updates at Amazon. I hope you’ll buy a copy for some one (maybe you?) to help them recover from a tough time, expand their horizons and accept new miracles!

You can order it from my website,

This year I spoke about my own past at “The Alcohol Awareness Hour” for the world famous Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, CA. I revealed things I had never shared in public.

There were laughter, tears and moments when I was not sure I would make it through the hour long talk. I had not anticipated how hard it would be in a room full of strangers, many of whom were only a few days or weeks clean and sober.

At the end of the talk something miraculous happened that made it more than worth while. Would you like to hear it?

“Making Peace with the Past is not for sale yet – anywhere. Here is the link to listen. It takes a few seconds to load. It’s FREE, my gift to you, sent with love.

Thanks to Debra Lux and Catherine Rush for helping me at “The Betty” and Bruce Feagle
( filmmaker extraordinaire for help with the CD.

Wishing you the gifts of recovery, love, health, happiness, prosperity and success during this season of many holidays!
