Welcome to the final episode of SPIRIT & RECOVERY, our 5-part podcast series exploring powerful healing modalities, philosophies and soulful practices that are designed to support recovery – on all levels – from trauma, addiction, harmful behaviors and more.

The relationship between sobriety and a belief in a higher power (or the soul) can vary greatly from person to person, yet in my experience, there is no sobriety without Spirit. So, what does a soulful approach to sobriety look like? 

In this episode we’re joined by Dr. Elisa Hallerman, founder of Recovery Management Agency, and the author of “Soulbriety: Heal Your Trauma, Overcome Addiction and Reconnect with Your Soul”.  At the age of 43, at the height of her wildly successful career as a top Hollywood agent, Dr. Hallerman left the entertainment world to step into her true life purpose and went back to school to get her Ph.D. in somatic depth psychology – the study of bringing unconscious psychological material into the light of awareness.

In this conversation we talk about the multiple faces of addiction, recovering from ‘soul loss’ and the insightful concept of Soulbriety
