 Recovery Elevator Free 5 day Video Course

The human brain has 60,000 – 70,000 thoughts per day and most of them are wrong and cause unrest in the mind. Invest in yourself with the gift of calm. You deserve the serenity and clear mind that meditation provides. Finding inner peace when quitting drinking alcohol is paramount and that’s why I’ve created the music and prompts in these free guided meditations. I’ll help you get the message that alcohol is no longer needed in your life past the analytical brain to the subconscious.

Café RE has provided a way for me to get out outside of my comfort zone, as someone who has always lived in the shadows of others – its provided comfort and a sense of belonging just knowing that I’m not alone. The alcohol free journey can be hard, but being able to connect and meet other like-minded individuals has really made a world of difference – whether its posting a video, checking in for accountability, or going across the country for a face-to-face meet-up; just knowing that I mean something to someone somewhere has helped made this journey a lot easier. – Ally

Café RE is a place where people “get it.” It’s not always easy to explain how you feel while battling this demon that is alcohol.  That is until you join Café RE and quickly find out that there’s no need to explain it. Everyone “gets it” because they are going through the same thing.

Recovery elevator podcast and the Café RE community saved my life. I joined so that I could get a discount for an event in Nashville in February ‘19 and I realized I had found my people. Everyone welcomed me with open arms and compassion and understanding in a way I’d never experienced before. The personal growth I’ve experienced by learning from others’ experiences and connecting with others is unmatched. I only wish I’d joined sooner.

Kirby, 31 - South Carolina

“It’s common to hear people in recovery circles talk about their “sobriety toolbox” and the importance of “finding your tribe.” I fully understood the meaning and importance of both terms when I finally found Cafe RE! I’d joined various sobriety forums online previously, with little interaction when I posted or replied to others. Nothing could prepare me for the change when I joined Cafe RE. From day one the outpouring of love, support, advice, and encouragement were more than I could have ever asked for or expected. You will be welcomed with open arms and can be entirely authentic and honest, while never judged. Members get to know each other through videos, webinars, and posts, and you are welcome to engage as much or as little as you find helpful. There are members at every stage of sobriety and from all sorts of drinking and recovery histories. Come join us and feel the love!”

“In 2015, I successfully did dry January. In 2016, I did dry January again and wanted to keep it going, but wasn’t able to make it past mid-February. The same thing happened in 2017. I wasn’t able to make it further than 6-8 weeks without a drink because I didn’t have any support or a tribe to keep me accountable. I was using my determination and will power to make it through tough moments, which didn’t work over the long haul. I signed up for Café RE in early 2018, and I’m almost at a year without alcohol. Without a doubt, there is strength in numbers.”

Travis, 47, Sacramento, CA

“I went on the trip of a lifetime to Thailand & Cambodia with Recovery Elevator, it changed my life forever. I was nervous at first meeting a bunch of people that i didn’t know on the other side of the globe, but I left with 27 beautiful new friends for life. We had so much fun, laughter, camaraderie, tears & memories together, sober. Not only did we ride bicycles (my favorite hobby) thru both countries to get an in depth, street view look, we also did much more. We hung out in mud & water with elephants, right aside elephants. We stayed in nice hotels & also with an actual family in Cambodia. We ate great food. We met amazing people that: fight for animals rights, train rats to sniff out landmines, recycle, reuse & create things with plastic, smile thru adversity. It made me really appreciate what I have in life & also want to be more positive and helpful to friends, family & strangers. Life changing, as I said. I would and will go on another trip with Recovery Elevator, sober travel is so memorable and pure, I am forever grateful.”
