Welcome With Rev Eyglo Bjarnadottir, Spiritual Care Counselor at the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation

Love is a source of power for powerless suffering people, no matter the source of the suffering, Love heals fear, it heals anger, guilt and shame. Love breaks the bonds of isolation and connects us. It connects us in truth, hope, faith and courage. Love restores and heals the spirit. Love is the force that makes recovery possible. In recovery we connect in love and service, we let love in and live in love. Love is a power source for healing, it is amazing and true. We come to believe through-and in love and we surrender to love. We are hardwired for love but the wiring gets messed up in addiction as well as in other destructive painful experiences. Recovery is about untangling and restoring the natural order of love in our lives. So my friends, walking through the doors of a little red house in downtown Reykjavik in 1989, a house where love had found its home, where love was the power source, the warmth, the compassion, the understanding and the truth, started for me the journey that brings me here to you today. My sincere hope is that you will join us for a day of love, empowerment, hope and pure joy, celebrating the freedom of recovery. - Words Eyglo Bjarnadottir

The Trauma Heart; Stories of Survival and Hope

We live in an age of trauma. Many people who have been caught in the web of addiction don’t identify as trauma survivors until their personal, familial, intergenerational and in-uterine history is fully understood. And when we recognize that childhood trauma, including abandonment and neglect, are the building blocks of a person’s blueprint for functioning and thriving, we can understand the power of addiction as a soothing and survival mechanism o ering relief and release from the emotional and psychic pain of trauma and how addictive behaviours are learned very early in life. Judy explores making sense of the behaviours, how to identify the signs that trauma may be an issue and o ers the stories and process of healing that has worked with the most “resistant” wounded individuals and her message of hope.
