Cuddling up with Compulsions: A Guide Back to Being Fully Alive

Our conversation about addiction, and what a progressive recovery entails, continues with Mary O'Malley, a special guest who chats with us about how we can perceive compulsion in a new, and unexpected way. If you've ever struggled with willpower and the surrounding feelings of worthlessness, then this piece is for you.

Mary O'Malley is an author, teacher, and counselor whose work awakens others to the joy of being fully alive. Her inspired and transformative approach to compulsions offers a way to replace fear, hopelessness and struggle with ease, well-being and joy. She is the author of "The Gift of Our Compulsions: A Revolutionary Approach to Self-Acceptance and Healing", and "What's in the Way is the Way: A Practical Guide for Waking Up to Life".
