Rise Up Rooted: Trauma, Yoga, and the Fourth Wave of Addiction Recovery

Rise Up Rooted book cover

Welcome to Rise Up Rooted! Here will be published, chapter by chapter,  a book by Dori Digenti (© 2021. All rights reserved) on the intersections of trauma, yoga, and recovery. This work is the result of 3 years’ work, mostly completed on writing retreats in Great Barrington, MA, Newburyport, MA, and Portland, ME. The catalysts for this book were many, as you can read about in the Preface, and later in the Appendix containing the author’s recovery story. A primary point of departure for writing this book was a retreat with Dr. Joanna Macy in San Francisco in 2018. There, many threads were woven together, and it became clear that the practice of yoga in concert with liberatory and earth-based practices were the keys to leading us out of the crisis of addiction. Please read on for more, and if you value what you discover here, please make donation to support the work of Breathing Space.
