I treat heaps of people who say they feel like a fake all day while going about their business in the normal world, then they get home hit the drugs or alcohol and finally feel ‘this is me’.

But then people tell them ‘you can’t face reality’. In this situation the answer is ‘I can’t face your reality’. See, if you are an addict you prefer being in an altered state, this means you prefer facing a different reality, a cosmic reality. We are cosmic beings so we are destined to be doing this. But you don’t need drugs or alcohol to do so, just special training for your mind, body and spirit. That’s what we offer in the retreat-style residential recovery program at Gaia; the secrets to facing a new cosmic reality without drugs or alcohol.
