About this Episode:
In this episode Dean Taraborelli shares his personal experience with drug addiction and how at the end he didn’t care if he lived or died. But what Dean did care about was not living and bringing his life’s purpose to the world which at the time he had no idea what it was. Dean realized through attending countless rehabs and treatments centers that he knew more about treatment than many of the counselors and in that moment the insight came through that he was alive to create a new form of treatment to support people struggling with addiction to heal. Since then, Dean embarked on creating his own holistic recovery center and in the process of service to others found his own healing. Today Dean is the founder of Sanctuary at Sedona. A 30 day treatment program that treats and addresses the whole person: mind, body, soul & spirit. Dean believes highly in the science of epigenetics and by creating new healthy environments we can signal new gene expression to create a new biology. One that doesn’t recognize addiction anymore. This is some cutting edge stuff and I encourage you to tune into the episode.
