Spiritual Shifts

Bartos paraphrases a definition by Harry Tiebout, a psychiatrist who was influential in early AA communities: “Surrender is marked by a sense of no longer being defensive. It’s a sense of living in the present moment and not being consumed by shame and fear. Surrender is also a willingness to follow advice and recognize it is not all my way or the highway. People who have surrendered can laugh at themselves. They can apologize for being wrong. They are interested in looking at themselves. And they strive to grow as people. … Having a spiritual shift sets a person free.”

Freedom brings hope and empowerment, two foundational elements the folks at Little Creek Lodge Recovery, Shane’s House and Little Creek Outpatient Services are bringing to the recovery community. Their continuum of care intends to set its participants free.
