Since I've been sharing more openly about my sobriety and past dark nights of the soul, I've gotten a lot of emails and messages expressing surprise, shock and inspiration at how brave it is for me to share.  Surprise and shock that I was going through something so deeply dark and they didn't know, inspiration at the bravery it seems to take to share about it, or questions about whether they have missed something...why am I choosing to now talk about it now, did they make me uncomfortable when they drank in front of me, how on earth do I deal with moving through the world now without drinking or drugging, what do I do at parties?
.
I haven't shared much about it because it was something for me to be with. It's also not a thing we are supposed to talk about. In spiritual circles we talk about our peak experiences, journey, insights, amazing meditations, dharma teachings, our divinity, being consciousness, how much money we are manifesting, etc. In my doctoral training, the patients were always

In spiritual circles we talk about our peak experiences, journey, insights, amazing meditations, dharma teachings, our divinity, being consciousness, how much money we are manifesting, etc. In my doctoral training, the patients were always "sicker" and more addicted than us, perhaps behind closed doors with our own therapists, never mind that my colleagues arrived very, very hungover 80% of the time (myself included). Yet spiritual teachers are committing suicide and leaders are struggling to keep it together. . The only place that started to make sense was deciding to be in recovery. I'd been sober for 11 years, replacing drinking with a spiritual ego and a doctoral education. I left the spiritual community and graduated. I drank again. It's not an unusual story, its just not one we really talk about. How can I be a shamanic healer with a Ph.D. and have a history of addiction? Because that's how it rolls folks. Initiation. . I'm okay with it. It's perfectly okay to be human, to have problems and still have wisdom, to struggle and that Spirit still exists, right there in the human heart. We just have to have our stuff in check, which we can't if we aren't allowed to talk about it. . (Continued in comments) Photo by

Just had one of those moments when I doubted that ‘smash’ was a word. “Smash. Smash. Smash?” I almost convinced myself that it was ‘shmash’ for a minute. I had to ask someone to make sure. 
Anyway, I just smashed leg day at the gym. I haven’t been for a few weeks, because I was doing a massive re-write of my book (amongst other flimsy excuses). The first workout back after a rest is always hard. I had to drop some of my weights. I had to substitute one set for something easier. I fell over twice doing box jumps. My legs felt like jelly and I apparently lost my grasp on the English language for a while there. (“Is it spelled ‘shmash’?) I’m dreading the DOMS I’ll no doubt get over the next few days but I’m also kinda looking forward to them too. It feels SO good to be back at it. I fucking love lifting weights. Gains, I’m coming to get you! Happy Thursday everyone. Get out there and shmash it. Instagram Photos | videos | post

This sweet little guy (my nephew) was born three years ago today.
.
He and I do downward dog (yoga poses) together 😊and he can flow through a sun salutation like a champ! Proud Yoga Auntie!
.
He calls me Oh Dough, which is his way of saying JoJo. I hope he still calls me Oh Dough when he’s 15! .
He’s a smart, fun-loving, happy boy who loves everything Paw Patrol and Thomas The Train these days. On Sunday he had a birthday celebration with 20 of his neighborhood friends and some kids he has known since he was a baby (kids of his parents friends). They played at an indoor gym obstacle course for toddlers and then had pizza and 🍰. He FaceTimed me last week and said, “Oh Dough are you coming to my party?”
.
Of course I’ll be there! I wouldn’t miss it!
.
I didn’t know on November 14, 2014 that I was zeroing in on my quit day. But exactly one month later, on December 14 I quit drinking for good. I haven’t had a drop, sip or drink of alcohol/ethanol since.
.
I’m so glad my nephew won’t know me as a drinker. I came to Thanksgiving that year queasy from drinking a bottle of wine the night before. Then I had some wine at Thanksgiving dinner while my one week old nephew slept in his bassinet next to the dinner table.
.
That’s the one and only experience he’ll have of his Aunt Jolene (Oh Dough) drinking. By Christmas dinner I was 10 days alcohol free and  I’ve continued to be ever since.
.
There were many reasons I wanted off the drinking merry-go-round for good, but I’m so glad it coincided with my nephew’s birth. For the last three years he has never been around the version of me that was queasy and woozy from drinking the night before or the part of me that felt anxious and distracted from drinking or wanting to drink.
.
Instead, he’s gotten a clear headed, way less anxious Aunt who could be present, and that’s a gift I’m glad I was able to give to him.
.
Happy 3rd Birthday to my sweet little nephew!.
🎁🎈🎉

One of my besties, who lives in Oz, just sent me the loveliest random message. It was about how we all tend to wait until x happens before we’ll allow ourselves to be happy: “I just need to get through my exams, then I’ll be able to relax.” “As soon as we move house, then we’ll be happier.” “When I lose weight then I’ll feel more confident.” “Once Christmas is out of the way, then I’ll feel better.” We perpetually postpone our happiness. We put conditions on it and once those conditions have been met, some other set of conditions will immediately take their place. Conditions will never be perfect. There will always be obstacles to overcome. So you might as well work on being happy now, whatever situation you’re in. Thanks for reminding me Steph, you glorious creature. 💙 Instagram Photos | videos | post

I am Deeeeep in this and feeling it extra, today. Feeling the collective conversations and working through the mud of my own. Deep unsettling. Deep shifts. And no idea this time where I even want to go. At least, in the past, there was that. The words below have been in my mind - especially those on communication and listening. I've created some playshops around that for the new year. Who knows what form I'll be in then. 💫
.
#RP and words @the_numinous ... Changing your mind, heart, self or way of life, takes a LOT. It can mean consciously going against beliefs, behaviors, habits, patterns, and social groups, that have been ingrained over years, decades, lifetimes. Speaking from experience (and just looking at what’s going on in the world rn!) this takes huge amounts of GRIT, vigilance, self-forgiveness, and courage. And above and beyond anything else, it takes REAL TALK.
>
This is why we themed our next Club SÖDA NYC event The Art of Conversation. Yeah we wanna give you some tools to transcend the small talk next time you’re not drinking on a date or at a networking event. But most of all we want to practice EMPATHY with you. To cultivate deep listening. So we can learn to hear what’s really being said, and what needs to be.

We are all evolving, transcending, shedding. Old selves, beliefs, paradigms, ways of being. Come practice how it feels to talk about it tomorrow night, November 13 @thewilliamvale. With @guidedbybiet @saraauster @themichaelventura @splendidspoonny and @zicococonut.

They played at an indoor gym obstacle course for toddlers and then had pizza and 🍰. He FaceTimed me last week and said, “Oh Dough are you coming to my party?”

Of course I’ll be there! I wouldn’t miss it!

I had to push back on everything I was led to believe as truth. I was not, nor am I, powerless!

I am Deeeeep in this and feeling it extra, today. Feeling the collective conversations and working through the mud of my own. Deep unsettling. Deep shifts. And no idea this time where I even want to go. At least, in the past, there was that. The words below have been in my mind - especially those on communication and listening. I've created some playshops around that for the new year. Who knows what form I'll be in then. 💫

#RP and words @the_numinous ... Changing your mind, heart, self or way of life, takes a LOT. It can mean consciously going against beliefs, behaviors, habits, patterns, and social groups, that have been ingrained over years, decades, lifetimes. Speaking from experience (and just looking at what’s going on in the world rn!) this takes huge amounts of GRIT, vigilance, self-forgiveness, and courage. And above and beyond anything else, it takes REAL TALK.

This is why we themed our next Club SÖDA NYC event The Art of Conversation. Yeah we wanna give you some tools to transcend the small talk next time you’re not drinking on a date or at a networking event. But most of all we want to practice EMPATHY with you. To cultivate deep listening. So we can learn to hear what’s really being said, and what needs to be.

We are all evolving, transcending, shedding. Old selves, beliefs, paradigms, ways of being. Come practice how it feels to talk about it tomorrow night, November 13 @thewilliamvale. With @guidedbybiet @saraauster @themichaelventura @splendidspoonny and @zicococonut. Tickets at the Club SÖDA link in my profile ✨🌈✨ (📸 @thesoberglow) #Numinous #Numiverse #peace #love #clubsodanyc #sobercurious #realtalk #highvibelife #materialgirlmysticalworld Instagram Photos | videos | post
