In this episode, author, coach and spiritual teacher Robert Rabbin explores the issue of addiction. He begins by breaking down the components of addiction and addresses our burning desire to break them. He asks us to look more closely. Instead of thinking of our addictions as problems waiting to be solved, he suggests that not only do we have more addictions that we may even realize, but that there is a spiritual view of addiction—addictive behavior is a sign of yearning for true freedom.
