Recovery is not just about being sober; it’s about true wellness. In this recording we will explore together the unconscious root system, discuss the phenomenology of the soul and the history of the concept in the history of psychotherapy and addiction treatment and recovery, and travel through the individual hero’s journey through addiction and trauma.

Elisa Hallerman, JD, PhD
On her fifth anniversary of sobriety, Elisa Hallerman still awoke with a hurting heart. This is not right. I am not happy. Sobriety was supposed to fix her, right? Isn’t that what sobriety is all about? Hallerman quickly realized that though she had freed her addiction to substances, she had not freed her soul. After years of trauma and substance abuse, she had only covered up the wounds, rather than truly healing them from within. This led to the development of Soulbriety, a recovery plan for overcoming addiction and trauma.
