Heroes in Recovery

Greetings!  Yes, Jane Doe is alive and well, but this blog has been quiet for quite some time. While the Jane Doe Recovery Facebook page did stay up and running, most of my writing has been focused on new projects and a new job that I started last year.  At one point I had considered …

Five Years Ago Today

From my amazingly strong and inspiring sister in law… About grief, healing and love that never ends.   Five years ago today and one day before Thanksgiving, TIM, my husband and the love of my life, passed away.  I have come to call November 25 my personal Ground Zero, the day when my whole world …

A Humble Posture

Every Sunday I teach a Recovery Yoga class/Wellness Meeting with a principle focus and this week we’re working on humility. It’s not always an easy subject to address. Humbling experiences can carry many complex emotions and often include something that resembles shame. Recognizing the difference between humility and shame is a key factor in recovery. Humility is not meant to bring …

Hard Work or Hardly Working?

I am happy to report that the companion workbook for Miracle in Progress is finally finished and out on Amazon. You can follow the links here or at the bottom of the page to check it out for yourself!  The idea of getting these two books published was an endeavor that seemed like it might be a little …

Vision Clearing Exercise

“Since the beginning of time, people have been trying to change the world so that they can be happy. This hasn’t ever worked, because it approaches the problem backward. What The World gives us is a way to change the projector—mind—rather than the projected. It’s like when there’s a piece of lint on a projector’s …

Looking Within

In the previous post Addicted to Looking Away we talked about the dangers of resisting reality and the many methods people use to avoid the present moment.  Today I want to offer a practical strategy for becoming fully present and surrendering to what is…  We need to develop a method for looking within. It’s called Ardha-Kurmasana or Half …

Addicted to Looking Away

I spent some time this week checking out the Recovery 2.0 online conference and I have to say that it was a pretty impressive gathering of recovery and wellness experts.  Of all the incredible information presented this one line stuck in my head, “I’m addicted to looking away.”  Tommy Rosen said it in his interview …

Taking Care of Your Brain

This is a big deal for me personally so I had share.  Mental illness is one of the things I have feared most in life.  I lost my mother to early onset Alzheimer’s disease.  I am in recovery for grief and anxiety myself and have two children in addiction recovery.  As it turns out nutrition …

Reason to Celebrate

Yesterday was Jane’s birthday! Two years ago today she was born (with the creation of this blog) in the early morning hours of my own birthday, at my kitchen table. I thought we should celebrate a little, and a peace cake seemed fitting, since that was all I was looking for and what being Jane …

Getting Out of Your Head

We hear this advice a lot in recovery. Most people can’t, or rather don’t, get out of their own heads because they never realize that there is an alternative. We simply start to believe that this is how life is going to be. We strengthen our conviction that we have no control over our thoughts …
