Ep 17: Your Wholeness In Recovery: Self Compassion, Spiritual Practice & Buddhism with Noel Coakley

Listen on:

About this Episode:

In this episode Noel and I discuss how spiritual practice creates the conditions for us to realize our own wholeness beyond the conditioned stories of the mind and how we can move into a place of self compassion.

With so many of us in recovery experiencing more pain and trauma than most, it’s often challenging to see our innate wholeness, as many continue to live with the stigma and false belief that something is wrong with them.

Noel shares how spiritual practice, specifically Buddhism, can help us realize our innate Buddha nature and wholeness that we bring forward from birth. That it’s possible to tap into the subtle shifts that we experience frequently to see beyond our conditioned minds and awaken to the truth of who we are and life in the present moment.
