Addictions: A Path to God ?

Every addiction known to man, is an absolute pathway to God, to the Divine experience here on earth.

Whether we are talking about alcohol, sex, co-dependency, drugs, gambling, smoking or more, each person who takes the step to get into recovery has the unique opportunity to use this as a path to experience Divine Union.

As amazing as this might sound, or as ridiculous as this sounds it is the absolute truth.

Enjoy this short video to see what I mean.

Slow down, relish the chance to use your addiction recovery as a way to become one with God.

Trying to understand, the Mystery of Death

A few years ago, while leading a funeral service for a very good friend of mine, I was asked to explain the mystery of death, the purpose of death. I think the answer to this question is a difficult one to fully know, even if you have walked in this profession for years and years.

I have looked to my mentors, my elders, to the teachings of those who have walked before me to try and decipher the answers to this question.

On this short video, we begin the quest, for some of the answers.

Sending you, and your loved ones, blessings.

Love, David

Helping college students, learn how to study.

There are so many distractions at the college level, from sports to social events, internships , parties and more, that many students even entering their senior year have not learned appropriate study habits for success.

"Study coaches" may be one vehicle to consider, to give your child at any school level, from middle school to college, the edge needed to be successful in their school studies.

Watch this short video to get an idea of what is available.

Everyone needs a guide to help them through life, with areas that they are not naturally good at.

Are we using too many excuses in life?

A woman sat in front of me explaining that it is never her "intention" to let her husband down.

Are we, as a nation, making too many excuses in life, instead of being responsible for our own growth?

Many of us want to lean on excuses, as a way to rationalize behavior that needs to be changed.

Enjoy the short video here to see what I mean.

Slow down, and use today as a day of change, to get more out of life.

Miami:A city of addictions, alcoholism, and recovery

I love the city of Miami, and specifically South Beach where we have our office for addiction recovery, and the more time I spend there the more I see the prevalence of high levels of addiction and alcoholism.

Some of the reasons for the high rates of addiction, as explained in this short video, are also the reasons that many are drawn to this beautiful city. As a matter of fact, we decided to open our second practice there because it has an incredible energy that attracts an eclectic, artistic and business minded group of inhabitants.

Here are some thoughts to consider on this video:

Let's slow down, and look for new options for recovery, if you live in Miami.

We are happy to be a part of the solution.

Contact us if we can help in any way at all.

Addiction Recovery Workshop: Aug. 13, SW Florida

New Holistic Addiction Recovery Training
Helps Professionals and Family Caretakers
(Link to course video embedded below)
(Fort Myers, FL) – August 2, 2011 – Professionals and family caretakers now have a chance to learn a new approach to recovery treatment. David Essel, a Holistic Addiction Recovery Coach, has developed an approach to help people achieve radical recovery treatment. Like many parents, teachers, ministers, doctors, nurses, spouses and life coaches, Essel was frustrated with the lack of success with much of the current addiction recovery model. He formulated a method to enable professionals and caregivers to offer an alternative chance to help clients and loved ones who seek treatment.
Essel will lead The Holistic Addiction Recovery Certification workshop will be held on August 13th and 14th. The program offers a new and proactive approach which is gaining acceptance and momentum across the U.S.
Most of us are aware that millions of people struggle with addictions across the U.S., with various therapies reporting recovery success. However, according to statistics, the average addiction recovery program in America offers a low 10% or fewer success rate of patient treatment results beyond the first year. Successful treatment, therefore, must produce considerable improvement beyond the early stage of remission.
Randy, a client of Essel’s Holistic Addiction Recovery Program, recalls when his life was spinning out of control. Financially at rock bottom, addicted to using drugs and alcohol for more than 38 years, he found himself in the middle of a divorce, obsessed and dependent on prescription medications. This forced him to make the decision to seek alternative professional help. Frustrated with traditional approaches, Randy decided to utilize the services of Essel’s program.
During his 30-day program, Randy pushed through the realities of his life struggles, unmasked his shame, and made discoveries that he never envisioned he could do. Most importantly, he changed his inner self, to affect his outer life.
Essel said, “The traditional model of recovery must improve client recovery by focusing on ways to increase the probability of recovery. Each program is customized because I am working with their individual issues. We use traditional and holistic modalities in order to address the root cause of the addictive behavioral issues.” Essel finds that his clients are able to remain committed to their customized program to re-establish new ways of being and living, releasing their old patterns of addictive behavior.
Essel’s Holistic Addiction Recovery Coaching Certification Program is based on traditional and non-traditional addiction recovery methods. His goal is to share this knowledge and practical methods with addiction recovery professionals, as well as friends and family care takers for those seeking recovery assistance. The program has given new hope and successfully helped addiction recovery clients achieve lasting change.
Essel’s informational video reviews how he takes the best of all recovery programs, and combines them into his certification workshop. Watch it on YouTube, here
The program includes life coaching, nutritional adjustments and supplementation, exercise, behavioral change techniques, accountability procedures, aftercare implementation and journaling. Additional focus on a holistic lifestyle change approach includes components such as an association to a spiritual path, meditation, prayer, acupuncture, aromatherapy, emotional recovery, forgiveness activities, and healing of addiction causes by family, environment and peer relationships.
Detailed program pre-requisites for Essel’s program are found at The next session of Holistic Addiction Recovery Level 1 will be held August 13th and 14th, from noon to 6pm each day. Training will take place at Fitness on the Move, 13010 Metro Pkwy, in Fort Myers. To register, call 941-266-7676. The $850 registration fee includes manual, Essel’s meditation audio CD and Spirituality audio CD. Participants must complete home study assignments within 30-days of completing the in class program in order to receive their certificate. For details about the program, please visit
David Essel is a Master Life, Business and Addiction Recovery Coach and All Faiths Minister. He is the author of “Slow Down: The Fastest Way to Get Everything You Want” (Hay House) and “Heaven On Earth: God Speaks Through The Heart of A Young Monk (Living Now)”. His professional coaching programs reach clients in the U.S. and internationally. He offers Life Coach Certification programs and other seminars, with offices in Fort Myers and Miami Florida.
