This week’s Sharing The Burden Podcast – Who Has the Power?”
Part 1: Need for a higher power
Wayne speaks of coming from Spiritual bankruptcy and isolation to being powerfully connected to his God and many people. 12 Step was the philosophy that gave him the key to Spiritual connection! Life had changed forever. Wayne says that connection is the opposite of addiction!
Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) is a program Wayne teaches at all levels and it is so powerful in the world of peer support. Peer Support is the afflicted equal with LIVED EXPERIENCE and evidence of improvement, coming alongside another person who is afflicted the same way. This support can work miracles! We believe within this simple formula along with educated professionals, the peer worker can be the catalyst that has been missing forever! Sharing The Burden looks forward to working with Wayne and Seeds of Hope to expose this HOPE and its fruitfulness everywhere!
$1 donated $10 returned. Money is saved as support tends to be very inexpensive in comparison to resulting medical costs, jail costs and more for the person without support. Tax savings for the donor is a major consideration as well!
Seeds of Hope, Sharing The Burden and Mentor Mentee are jointly seeking funding as they collaborate to make the difference that will offer the needy more and more of an all-around lifestyle of reasonable comfort and productive purpose.
At STB’s jail support services we have learned that the inmate offers us an unconditional love, regardless of who we are. When we receive this love, we are able to both return it and share it with other inmates and each other. This LOVE allows us to truly love the inmate regardless her/his behaviour or nature of criminal activity. HOPE is born and can provide enough for the inmate to hang on!
Wayne uses 12 step to support ADHD (The Compassion Course which he started) and PTSD with success. Many are healing and supported as Wayne’s efforts and ideas spread throughout the world! He sees technology as a huge assist in quick spread of so much, however, he believes as I do that the real hope for CONNECTION and SPIRITUAL GROWTH resides in the physical aspect of the face to face, in person 12 step meetings. The online meeting will never hold this magic!Wayne uses 12 step to support ADHD (The Compassion Course which he started) and PTSD with success.

Part 3 Wayne’s busy balanced life
At 39 Wayne found connection and Spirituality through 12 steps and his life changed dramatically. He became a huge service oriented man with drive, energy and purpose. His many years of education and his new way joined to create so much!
He travels and teaches relentlessly but takes special time on a regular basis for exercise, prayer and meditation. Busy, yes but God first, a clean house and help others, is still the prescription that works for him. The 12 steps give him what he needs to bring it all together! We know that this formula keeps millions (probably 10’s of millions) emotionally balanced enough today to maintain sobriety in their addictions, compulsions and mental illnesses! Emotional sobriety for each of these, results in up to 10 people being happier, more functional and able to look at their problems and the part they have been playing in these family illnesses! Do the math for fun! No other way can come close, I believe (Scott)!
