On the Journey from Addiction to Recovery
The Essential Journey Series

“Wonderful!” is not a full enough word to convey the complexity
of meaning, layer upon layer of revelation or strength of expression.
yet, I have to say, it was wonderful! This is a journey through Step One
like no other and can tap the very core of the newcomer, the old-timer
and the “in-betweenr.”

“Thank you for sharing in a way few can, from the song of your heart to
the tune of ours.”
Shelley Marshall, author of Day By Day and the Pocket Sponsor

“A journey from powerlessness to liberation through searing imagery
and evocative music.”

In an addictive society we all are touched by the toxic effects of addiction.
This work is for people who are committed to guiding themselves or others
into recovery and healing.

“Join me on this emotional, intellectual, and spiritual experience
from breakdown to breakthrough…in a mere fifteen minutes.”

Listen to a one minute sample from the cd.
