ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"The Joy of Living" is an addiction recovery lecture by John MacDougall. John is the Director of Spiritual Guidance, and the most popular lecturer in the patient lecture series at Hazelden, the world-famous addiction treatment center in Center City, Minnesota. John is a recovering alcoholic and addict, sober since 1989. John speaks at professional and A.A. events throughout the country, and internationally.

"The Joy of Living" is a lecture given at a Twelve Step recovery weekend. It is John's own recovery story, with a reflection on the joy of being alive. John discusses how we first move through survival behaviors, experience physical recovery, then mental recovery, how our emotions heal, and we finally become spiritually alive. The theme is derived from the "Big Book" of Alcoholics Anonymous, where it says that we are sure God wants us to be happy, joyous, and free. It is a lecture of humor and hope, and part of an available series by John MacDougall. The lecture time is 59 minutes.
