EVERYONE IS ADDICTED TO SOMETHING
About unhealthy, destructive, or ailing dependencies that take our health, freedom, and happiness.
ADDICTION is something that we cannot quit. When we are addicted to something or someone, we cannot detract, even if the situation hurts us. An addiction is a form of slavery or dependency.
If we delve a little deeper into the meaning, and mention some examples, we are addicted when we have an urgent need to repeat and repeat the same thing, to do the same thing, or to do it in the same way every time, to follow a certain practice that we do not like, even if we realize that it hurts us. We are addicted when we return again and again to the same behaviors without being aware that we are trapped by automation, customs and habits.
In this sense, we could say that we are addicted to oxygen, breathing, sleeping, eating or drinking; but all these addictions are natural, they are part of the orders we receive from our instinct.
When speaking of “addiction,” it would be more accurate to refer to UNHEALTHY, DESTRUCTIVE, OR AILING ADDICTIONS. For example, addiction to a particular relationship that does not serve us; Saving money and not enjoying it; Smoking, drinking alcohol, or using detrimental substances; Non-stop, excessive eating, or eating all the time without having a physiological need. But there are many more harmful addictions that subject us every day to a kind of slavery which we do not even realize.
Behind all addictions there is a structural and psycho-emotional background that has led to addictions, so that if the addictive structure is not eliminated, the need to depend will remain alive and will manifest itself in one way or another. You can leave an addiction but then fall into another. It’s very common. It is a result from the need to depend remaining alive.
The vast majority of clinics or treatment centers for addictions address the problem from the surface, coercing addicts to stop something that is BAD. Guilt is widely used for that purpose, peer pressure, the convenience of leaving the addiction in order to obtain better benefits, and other strategies that although they have good results in many cases, don’t reach the root of why an individual ends up caught in an addiction.
Within the Ayahuasca International team, in which we are engaged in dealing with various problems through psychotherapeutic use of Ayahuasca, addiction-liberating phenomenena have manifested in some participants that have left us truly astonished. Those people who have been healed of certain dependencies, have gone on to receive training at the European School of Ayahuasca, and currently work as facilitators in inner evolution retreats which we conduct in over 10 countries. In fact, they are 100% devoted to this.
They have created a very particular retreat to address the issue of addiction, for any person interested in exploring the roots of how those addictive structures arise and are maintained, and how they can be destroyed to live a life free of dependencies.
The main tools used are medicinal plants brought especially from the Colombian Amazon, advised by shamans and wise healers, to create a cleansing process so deep in the body that provides direct access to the core of the addiction.
The encounter of each individual with the roots of his addiction is a key step to crumble the addictive structure.
You can come to this retreat dedicated to addictions 04-08/Dec/2015, not because you are addicted to some substance, but because humans are addicted to many things that harm us and which complicate our life and health.
OVERCOMING A SMALL ADDICTION GIVES US GREAT POWER TO MANAGE OUR EVERYDAY LIFE. BECAUSE WHEN THAT HAPPENS, WE REALIZE THAT WE CAN FREE OURSELVES OF MANY OTHER, MORE COMPLICATED THINGS, WHICH ARE NOT HEALTHY FOR OUR LIFE, ESPECIALLY IF WE HAVE REACHED THE ROOT OF THE ADDICTION WE HAVE OVERCOME
You can also come to the retreat to see how we treat addictions, in case you ever want to send someone who has a very strong addiction and you want to help with the solution.
WE DO NOT PROMISE TO TAKE AWAY ANY ADDICTION, WE CAN TELL YOU HOW WE HAVE OVERCOME ADDICTION OURSELVES. WE WANT TO INSPIRE YOU TO DARE TO SEE WHAT YOUR ADDICTION IS AND TO FIND WITHIN YOURSELF THE WAY OUT.
The tools that we manage and specialize in are very powerful. We combine effective psychotherapeutic techniques with master plants of power, a truly effective mixture that will support and guide you along the path of freedom.
