A Multi-Faceted Approach to Healing From Addiction 


sunheart.jpg

Our approach combines healing at the levels of the mind, body and spirit.  

 

Spiritual Healing: Turning any negative beliefs about self, others and/or our reality into positive ones.  Getting to the root of the issue.

Alignment of Body and Spirit: By releasing pain and trauma from the body, and helping you get out of your stress response (flight or fight), you will connect with the deeper aspect of your nervous system, the system that is in charge of healing, restoration, and recovery.  An uninhibited body allows the spirit to naturally connect, align, and integrate, thereby reaching a truer state of harmony and ease.  

Optimizing Performance: Are you achieving personal excellence? Discover the practical tools, routines, habits and behaviors you need to nourish, fuel, and support you on any endeavor you choose to partake in.  


At This Workshop You Will:

  •  Receive acupuncture treatments that will balance and connect you to the deeper part of your nervous system, thereby removing cravings, compulsions, and symptoms of anxiety, depression and other withdrawal disorders
  •  Learn a unique movement therapy technique designed to release pain and trauma in the body and remove energetic blockages that get in the way of connecting with your true self
  • Have 1 follow up phone consultation with Kirby Teuila within 2 weeks of the workshop to further assist your personal journey
  • Get to the root cause of your addictive behavior and discover the remedy for your unique and individual experience
  • Learn how to support others with addictive behavioral patterns
  • Gain some powerful tools, including a process method, to assist you in creating healthier pathways and support mindful living
  • Leave with keys to the self to unlock the doors for healing, transformation and creating a consciously chosen life.

The Truth About Addictions

It is not just an individual’s problem; it is an EPIDEMIC THAT IS SWALLOWING UP OUR PEOPLE,

OUR COMMUNITIES, OUR FAMILIES, OUR LIVES.

 

Addictive behaviors lead to an impoverished life and rob you of spiritual and material wealth. If unaddressed, it gets exponentially worse, leading to total and complete loss—finances, friends, family, career, health, and, most important of all, the purpose for which you were created.  

Millions of people are choosing death and/or an unconscious and distracted life rather than consciously choosing to live the life for which they were called into being.


A New Definition of Addiction

 

ad·dic·tion əˈdikSH(ə)n/

Whatever blocks you from being who you are on earth and being comfortable on this earth as YOU. Being controlled by your ego. Your highest Self being poisoned to death by numbing agents because of deep, terrible, sometimes ancient pain.

 

The Root/
 

“I will never be comfortable with life on earth. I will never feel love | there is an emptiness that I cannot fill.”


Questions for Self-Reflection

 

Who has not been touched by addiction? 

What community, culture, group, or individual has not had to deal with the troubling and destructive affects of addiction on themselves and their community? 

Are you distracted by gambling, shopping, sex, porn, drugs, emotions, food, sugar, TV or toxic relationships?

What emptiness is gnawing at you, pulling you down and creating poverty in yourself and your community?

 

Are you hiding what is consuming you? Are you ready to face it, get a handle on it and move through it? 

 


Accompaniment | Service | Community


accompany.jpeg

We highly encourage you to bring a companion, co-worker, spouse, loved one, sibling, friend along and accompany each other on this incredible journey of thriving health!

 

It has been our experience that personal healing is best done when accompanied by a friend or two that know you and can mirror you well. What is mirroring you ask? Simply put, the ability to feel 100% yourself around another, free from judgement and projections.  

 

Do you know someone dealing with addictions or negative patterns? Come and find out how you can be of real service to the people and communities you connect with.

Kirby Grey
Kirby Teuila Grey is an acupuncturist, herbalist, bodyworker and spiritual practitioner hailing from Seattle, WA. After studying theology, Kirby decided that the best way to heal herself and others was to engage with Eastern Medicine and the healing arts.

Currently, she is working to create a framework that uses various tools, including ceremony, ritual, body movement, and storytelling to help people initiate, connect, and/or remember who they ARE. Whether it's a woman who's recently transitioned into motherhood, young adults in their transitions to adulthood, individuals reconnecting after addiction, or communities dealing with systematic oppression, Kirby welcomes them into her practice with an open heart.

An Open Letter To MY PEOPLE,

 

Who has not been touched by addiction? What community, culture, group, or individual has not had to deal with the troubling and destructive affects of addiction on themselves and their community?  

ad·dic·tion əˈdikSH(ə)n/

Whatever blocks you from being who you are on earth and being comfortable on this earth as YOU. Being controlled by your ego. Your highest Self being poisoned to death by numbing agents because of deep, terrible, sometimes ancient pain.

The Truth About AddictionsIt is not just an individual’s problem; it is an EPIDEMIC THAT IS SWALLOWING UP OUR PEOPLE, OUR COMMUNITIES, OUR FAMILIES, OUR LIVES.

Addictive behaviors lead to an impoverished life and rob you of spiritual and material wealth. If unaddressed, it gets exponentially worse, leading to total and complete loss—finances, friends, family, career, health, and, most important of all, the purpose for which you were created.  

Millions of people are choosing death and/or an unconscious and distracted life rather than consciously choosing to live the life for which they were called into being.

My people. I love you. The time is now. I invite you to ask yourselves:
Are you distracted by gambling, shopping, sex, porn, drugs, emotions, food, sugar, TV or toxic relationships?
What emptiness is gnawing at you, pulling you down and creating poverty in yourself and your community?

Are you hiding what is consuming you? Are you ready to face it, get a handle on it and move through it? 

 

If so, we offer this special workshop, the first of it’s kind.  

 

A WORKSHOP FOR HEALING ADDICTION, FOR INTEGRATING YOUR SELF–CAPITAL S.

 

In a house of light, fierce love, safety, and security, we—Julie Walker, Tatiana Zamir and I, spiritual health workers—will help you get to the roots of addiction. Be it one pattern or a constellation of behaviors that are obstacles in your path, we're here to support you.

We'll discuss what addictions are and why they affect us so deeply in the first place. We'll get real and demystify them, without shame, blame, or judgment. You will learn how to heal addiction from all sides, with practical tools to re-design, re-align, and integrate yourself, so YOU can be your own hero; a hero living his or her calling. So you can be a warrior of light and love, strength, grit, courage, and determination; and a catalyst and messenger who can bring that healing to communities.

 

For me, this is personal. I come from a long line of addicts on both sides of my family tree, my mother and father included.

 

I have a strong nature and so do my people. With that strong nature comes the polarity of a strong ego and a pre-disposition to addictions of all kinds, coupled with an equally strong spirit and will to transform. Given my lineage of addiction, and the chaos and severe dysfunction that came with it, my life was not set up for success, but for failure. Yet thanks to a deep awareness of the obstacles that have been placed in my path, I have chosen to spend my full 31 years of life trying to figure out how to properly engage my nature, my ego, and my spirit, so that I stay fully integrated, aligned and living with integrity, with my highest Self– capital S.

I witness every day how addiction affects nearly every single member of my family. I witness everyday how addiction affects close friends, companions, and loved ones. Every day I face the constant test in wrestling my nature to feel at peace. From this intimate experience with addiction, I have gained a greater calling to help people heal from deep harm, and reveal for themselves the inherent purpose of their creation.

Because this much I know:

 

WARRIORS FIRE UPDATED.jpg

My people, ONCE WE WERE WARRIORS, not addicts. We did not fear death -- we embraced death -- we stared down our fears and we chose life.  We LIVED AND WE LIVED FIERCELY AND WITH GRACE.

It is our personal and collective responsibility to harness that primal warrior energy and use it for pure love and good. This is not the time to placate, surrender, or give in to what has become our destructive egos. It is the time to claim our destiny. It is time to honor our nobility, our high purpose, and our gratitude for being alive during such an incredible time in human history where where get to CHOOSE our life.

Come one and come all.  

All my love,

Kirby Teuila Grey
