Serenity in Sobriety

Like a Lotus flower that grows out of the mud and blossoms above the muddy water surface, We can rise above our Defilement’s and Sufferings of Life

Welcome to Serenity in Sobriety

This is about getting the message out there that Trauma is a gateway for Addictions and that even though you don’t suffer from addictions, your most likely using some form of substance in a way to mask it.

Whether its eating, gambling, gossiping, sex, bullying, being a narcissists. We are all affected by trauma in one way or another and it shows up as loss, grief, self-esteem, abuse, injuries, abandonment, violence, health, neglect, shame, guilt, emotional pain, inter-generational, grief and being distraught to name a few but It’s not limited to everyday events that may arise like a house fire, a lost long term relationship, natural disasters, foster care, adoption, poverty, accidents, sudden unexpected loss, war, missing persons.

This affected our life in some way. It pops up unexpectedly or it’s been passed down from our great grand parents to our grand parents to our parents to us. It’s a learned pattern that keeps moving through our families until we finally choose to break this cycle ourselves and start being accountable for our own actions showing and giving our children a better life. This group is about sharing, healing and seeing your self worth. To bring awareness to our lives, develop a resilience to triggers or situations, re-integrate and re-build ourselves and discover that we are worthy of a great life. We are loving humans that need connection with others around us and we are deserving of that.

2020 is about change, it’s a new decade to bring everything together and be whole again, be who we were meant to be.
