"The feeling was electric-energy humming through my body. I felt like blood was pouring into areas of my tissues that it had not been able to reach for some time. It was relieving and healing, subtler than the feeling from getting off on drugs, but it was detectable and lovely, and of course, there was no hangover, just a feeling of more ease than I could

Overview

"The feeling was electric-energy humming through my body. I felt like blood was pouring into areas of my tissues that it had not been able to reach for some time. It was relieving and healing, subtler than the feeling from getting off on drugs, but it was detectable and lovely, and of course, there was no hangover, just a feeling of more ease than I could remember. I felt a warmth come over me similar to what I felt when I had done heroin, but far from the darkness of that insanity, this was pure light-a way through." - Tommy Rosen, on his first yoga experience

Most of us deal with addiction in some form. While you may not be a fall-down drunk, anorexic, or a gambling addict, you likely struggle with addiction in other ways. Workaholism, overeating, and compulsively engaging with technology like video games, texting, and Facebook are also highly common examples. And if you don't suffer from addiction, chances are you know someone who does.

Through more than 20 years of recovery and in working professionally with others, Tommy Rosen has uncovered core elements of recovery and healing, what he refers to as Recovery 2.0. In the book, he shares his own past struggles with addiction, and powerful, tested tools for breaking free from the obstacles that stand in the way of a holistic and lasting recovery. Building off the key tenets of the 12-Step program, he has developed an innovative approach that includes

  • Looking at the roots of addiction; your family history and "Addiction Story"
  • Daily breathing practices, meditation, yoga, and body awareness
  • A healthy, alkaline-based diet to aid with detox, boost immunity, increase vitality, support your entire recovery, and help prevent relapse
  • Discovering your mission, living on purpose, and being of service to others

Recovery 2.0 will help readers not only release their addictions, but thrive in their recovery.

“Tommy Rosen has written something extraordinary that is going to change the way people look at addiction and how to approach recovery from it. His rallying cry that we must bring the gifts of yoga and meditation together with the power of the 12 Steps is timely and important. And his emphasis on healthy food choices as part of any complete recovery strategy is cutting edge. As Tommy says, ‘Get psyched. Your life is about to change.’”

“Through his own journey into recovery and becoming a global yoga teacher, mentor, and guide, Tommy has made a tremendous contribution to all beings about the nature of addiction, the liberation through embodying the ground of our own being, and discovering the high of our own inner pharmacy. Highly recommended for all on the path to recovering our essential Self.”

— Shiva Rea, author of Tending the Heart Fireand founder of Prana Vinyasa Flow and Global Mala Project

“Recovery 2.0is part memoir, part guidebook, and part love letter—written from a deeply caring and experienced friend, Tommy Rosen. Tommy’s honest and direct storytelling helps us to understand the power of addiction and encourages us to be open to the varying tools, both traditional and contemporary—including yoga—that can end our addictive behaviors, while also understanding the internalized trauma that is core to both our dis-ease and our healing. I love this book and know that it will serve as a practical and spiritual resource for many on their path to recovery.”

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.
