The reasons people find themselves drug and alcohol dependent are as varied and unique as the individuals themselves. Still, there are common mental threads. Depression, rage, hopelessness, anxiety and stress show themselves in a myriad of ways. When we dig deeper we find guilt and shame. All of these stem from deep, repressed fears.
The vast majority of humans on this planet deal with these uglies in some way or other. Whether TV, junk foods or hard drugs, many choose to escape in inefficient ways. When we find ourselves in situations where basic existence seems like a feat of endurance, we long to shift out of discomfort however we can. Enter the modalities of Qi Gong, Breathwork, Meditation and Tai Chi. These are ancient, powerful tools designed to work multiple pathways.
We work to observe and release old subconscious patterns, traumas and fears from deep inside. We learn to communicate clearly with our own minds and bodies. We learn to use body language to our advantage. We learn to consciously create states of peace and harmony within, changing state at will. We gain a sense of confidence, based in reality, capable of leading us to lives of joy and gratitude. Or at the least, we can point out a sign marked path with the potential of leading to that place. Of course, people always have their free will and choice so inspiration ends up being a very important ingredient.
