VividLife Radio’s Ed and Deb Shapiro welcome author and celebrated vocalist Ester Nicholson to discuss Soul Recovery: 12 keys to Healing Addiction
Ester Nicholson is a celebrated vocalist with Bette Midler and Rod Stewart. She is also a former hardcore addict. A victim of emotional and domestic abuse, she had a daughter as a teenager and was then introduced to snorting and cocaine. Lost in years of addiction she neglected and then surrendered custody of her child, had destructive relationships, heaped self-abuse on herself, and was nearly homeless. Her story of facing her demons and finding herself is riveting. In Soul Recovery she marries the AA 12-Step Process with metaphysical principles that have redefined what success looks like in the treatment of addiction and dependence, developed through her own healing.
As the great Zen master Alan Watts said: “We all need to go out of our minds at least once a day!” Going Out Of Your Mind with Ed and Deb Shapiro is a chance for you to drop your analyzing and intellectual mind and come into the immediate experience of present awakening. We are irreverent spiritual teachers and don’t take ourselves too seriously so our discussion show has a great sense of humor while also exploring in depth what it means to live with integrity, awareness, kindness, compassion, and humility.
