Navigating life with addicted loved ones

15/04/2023: Understanding the Dependency and Finding Compassion through the psycho-spiritual lens

  • Online

Service Description

Saturday 15th April 2023 16.30pm - 17.30pm MT Online What you will learn from the session: A personal account of living with an addict, the broader impact of the disease and finding freedom through self-compassion. Understanding the roller-coaster of emotions (panic, imagining doomsday scenarios, fear, grief, loss, anger, abusiveness) their source and how to avoiding getting caught up in them. Understanding the nature of our own addiction and how it fuels the emotional roller-coaster and how we perpetuate the negative spiral of our experience. How the Gurmat Therapy psycho-spiritual model can help you move forward with your own life independently of achieving a desired outcome from your loved one. Living with an Addicted Loved One: Sharon spent over 9 years pulled like a puppet in whichever direction the addiction of the “apple of her eye” took her. She disregarded the needs and even safeguarding of her own husband and child in her attempts “save” her loved one. Even undergoing her own treatment for cancer did not prevent her from trying to assuage and pander to the extreme emotional and physical demands this relationship placed on her. Only when she found Gurmat Therapy was she able to understand the extent to which she was disrespecting her own life energy whilst in reality rather than having rescued her loved one had simply made her weaker and more co-dependent on Sharon. Understanding her true capacity and significance allowed Sharon to befriend and process her own emotions so that she was able to forge a pathway to freedom without being held back by feelings of guilt, anger, shame and helplessness. We will learn the psychology and science behind the emotions and how to cope when those emotions are inevitably triggered. The psycho-spiritual therapeutic process will help you to cultivate acceptance of and forge a pathway forward too. Sharon's full bio:
