Tommy Rosen, a yoga teacher with over 20 years of sobriety, is the brainchild behind the Tadasana Festival, and teaches regularly at yoga conferences and festivals. Now he's decided to focus his spiritual energy on the addiction and recovery community, with the creation of Recovery 2.0, a free online conference that will take place from March 17-21. Featuring interviews with such experts as Memoirs of an Addicted Brain author Dr. Marc Lewis and In The Realm of Hungry Ghosts author Dr. Gabor Maté, Recovery 2.0 aims to explore recovery from medical, scientific and spiritual angles. The conference will focus on drug, alcohol, food, sex and money addiction as well as recovery solutions such as 12 step programs, meditation and yoga. "Along my path of recovery, I discovered that ‘truly moving beyond’ meant addressing my whole self and not just getting clean," Rosen says of his reasons for creating Recovery 2.0. "It meant addressing the underlying issues that had led me to the dis-ease of my mind, body and spirit. Having recognized that deep and expansive healing from addiction requires many perspectives, techniques, and resources, it is my personal mission to continue to find and to share these essential ingredients of recovery."
