Welcome to the February 2014 edition of Parvati Magazine.
Sobriety is a word we hear usually in relation to those suffering from substance abuse. Wikipedia describes sobriety as “the condition of not having any measurable levels of, or effects from, mood-altering drugs”.
We think of addiction usually in terms of substances such as alcohol and drugs. But any habit we have that interferes with our quality of living may in fact be an addiction. If we do not know how to moderate, we may be a shop-aholic, work-aholic, rage-aholic, gossip-aholic, fitness-aholic. We may even be a spirit-aholic. We can be so focused on whatever the thing may be, that we lose our sense of wholeness in it.
In this issue, you will find valuable tools that will help you explore ways in which you can gain greater balanced living so that you can meet this year with sobriety.
