Our children and youth are dying rapidly due to over consumption of legal prescriptions, illegal drugs and alcohol. With the disease of addiction relationships become painful and ruined. Hate, anger, resentment, judgment, shame, guilt and outrage take the place of love, respect, and compassion.
I lost my beautiful son to opioid addiction recently. The heart-break and pain is unbearable. This is so unacceptable, so awful, one of the greatest losses a human being can ever experience.
I am determined not to allow my son's death be in vain. Therefore, utilizing our Mindfulness center, Perfectly Here , in Tarzana to offer programs that help heal those affected by the disease of addiction.
Please help support the
Kuroosh Compassionate Recovery Program (KCRP).
You may ask, how can one be loving and compassionate to an addict who lives to use and causes so much pain and destruction?
Living with my son, Kuroosh, and enduring the hard consequences of his addiction would have been extremely destructive without feeling, practicing and behaving compassionate towards him, his illness and my own suffering.
Compassion is something that is hard to hold on to when dealing with fear, worry and chaos within the family system of addiction. Your support can help develop the heart of compassion and compassionate boundaries, which create the space for loving relationships.
Practicing loving/kindness, compassion and non-judgmental attitude helped change Kuroosh's heart and direction. He became kinder, more generous, less selfish and isolated, more aware of others and how to regulate his emotions and anxieties. He lived to serve and motivate others. Through the compassion practices his demeanor and attitude towards others blossomed into gratitude, appreciation and kindness.
His uncle who didn't show emotions before, said, "I learned the value of expressing love from Kuroosh, and that is a lot."
May you and all beings be able to live a fulfilled life with loving relationships.
