A brand new year is a fine time for assessing what’s working for us and what isn’t. Sometimes this means taking stock of where we are with relationships, old patterns, our health, and how we spend our time. We can then tend to what needs nurturing, prune what belongs in the past, and sow the seeds of the changes we desire.
It’s been two years since we finally found, cleaned up, remastered, and published Chuck Leviton’s guided imagery for each of the 12 Steps - the 12 Steps being the ingenious blueprint for substance use recovery that is at the heart of Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, and all the other AA programs that have helped millions of people around the globe.
It's hard to know what to say when there is so much chaos around us.
In the last 24 hours, I've felt shocked. Angry. Fearful.
Uncertain. In utter disbelief.
Chances are, you have, too, regardless of your political beliefs.
The unpredictability and change we experienced last year threw a lot of things into the air. Some we juggled with aplomb (maybe even surprising ourselves?), some we worked around, some we’re still waiting on to come back down...
But I’ll bet those muscles of flexibility and adaptation we’ve been exercising have resulted in some pretty noteworthy gains, especially when we look back through the lens of self-reflection —how did we handle such-and-such a challenge? What new ways did we find to get to a solution?
Blue Shield of California offered guided imagery to patients scheduled for major surgery, to balance their need to control costs with the desire to deliver positive experiences and high quality of care to attract and retain members.
