Overview


Through more than 20 years of recovery from addiction, noted yoga teacher Tommy Rosen learned a lot about what works and what doesn’t work in recovery. From his explorations on the yoga mat and in 12-Step rooms, he found a path to sustainable recovery that includes mind-body practices, a profound look at diet, and a more holistic and inclusive perspective on the 12 Steps. This led him to realize that recovery happens in stages, and that by utilizing the best practices of the 12 Steps in combination with yoga and meditation, he could achieve lasting freedom from addiction.
In Recovery 2.0, Tommy shares his own past struggles with addiction and the powerful insights that helped him to identify and break free from the obstacles that stand in the way of recovery. Building off the key tenets of the 12-Step program, he lays out an innovative approach where deeper levels of detoxification and transformation allow you to uproot addiction and thrive. In these pages, you’ll find:

  • A new way of looking at addiction as a vibratory frequency that has roots in family history and one’s “Addiction Story,” which helps to destigmatize addiction and remove associated guilt and shame.
  • Fresh perspectives on how to get the most out of the 12-Step teachings and community, while avoiding pitfalls.
  • Daily practices in breathing, meditation, and yoga that will give you access to the extraordinary power within you.
  • A pathway to a newer, healthier relationship with food designed to boost immunity, increase vitality, support recovery, and prevent relapse.
  • Inspiration to help you discover your personal mission and be of service to others.
The point is not to survive addiction. The point is to thrive in recovery and live a life second to none.

With clear, engaging, upligting and heatfelt brilliance, Tommy R gives a very cool and up to date message about what it truly takes to thrive in recovery. His message comes across true and authentic. He relates this message not only as a recovering addict himself, but also as a sponsor, a coach, a therapist and at times, a friend. Very well articulated and drives home the point that recovery should be about more than just meeting attendance and working the 12 steps. It is in the way you eat, how you take care of yourself, how you cultivate a relationship with a higher power and how you relate to the world. I read alot of books and was unable to put this one down.

Tommy Rosen speaks from his own first-hand experience and what he has discovered through trial and error worked for him to conquer his addictions. He has been creative, brave, introspective, and thoughtful in putting together "Recovery 2.0" and I thought it was great.
