This 2-day immersive, led by George Haas (Founder of Mettagroup) is designed to support you with relapse prevention and to stabilize addiction, with a focus on a meditative solution within a socratic teaching format.
Within this model, addiction is understood to be an attachment disturbance. It’s an avoidance strategy to help you emotionally regulate, so that you don’t need to be dependent on others.
Whether you have years in recovery, or even a few days, this program will offer you new tools and perspectives to support your path in recovery.
Why This Matters:
Very few, if any, addiction treatments you may have received (including even decades of recovery meetings) will have virtually no effect on your attachment strategy.
While it is not easy to repair the underlying attachment strategy, to do so would make life breathtakingly easier.
As context, George has 42 years clean and dry, and 28 years of therapy. It wasn’t until 3 years ago that he addressed his attachment disturbance. None of the prior efforts (and there are too many to count) changed anything. However, three years of this work has moved his attachment strategy from complexly disorganized to secure territory. He wishes he had this in the first few years of recovery.
George Haas taught this in Los Angeles at addiction treatment centers for 6 years.
In this group program, George will take you through 4 core modules including:
Craving and Urging: This includes thoughts of using (and what to do with those thoughts)
Stress, Anger and Depression: Anger tends to drive people to use the most. In this module, you’ll learn how to work with these challenges.
Persistent negative emotions – Trauma
Difficult interpersonal relationships
This program includes:
Live group training led by George Haas over 2 days within an immersive format
Resources provided after the event, including reading materials about attachment as well as guided meditation recordings.
