Today, on In the Circle, there is a slightly different thing going on as we share with you a talk that I gave on our recent retreat to Big Sky Montana. There, I found myself in front of 100 people at various stages of addiction and recovery to tell my story, and that of Recovery 2.0.

This particular talk will answer so many of your questions about how we arrived at this very moment, understanding addiction at a deeper level, understanding recovery at a deeper level, and understanding where the pitfalls are along the way.

You are going to hear a lot about my personal story. I share the stories from my history towards the end of my addiction, all the way through my recovery, and then ultimately the founding of Recovery 2.0. I'm excited to invite you into this very intimate moment that we had together. Let's see where it takes us.

Tommy discusses:

  • Arriving to Hazelden for treatment at 22
  • Opening space within ourselves for grace 
  • Understanding “The meek shall inherit the earth”
  • Digging a new foundation for innovation 
  • Advice for those in early recovery
  • Listening for the frequency of addiction 
  • The inspiration for Recovery 2.0
  • Seeing the world through a lens of stress
