Advanced Soul Recovery (ASR) assists the Lighthouse by providing group work in an outdoor setting. Emily Laine and Robert Layton, the founders of ASR are transformational healers with extensive background and experience in spiritual healing and the addiction field. This modality works inclusively with all faiths and belief systems. The knowledge stems from experiences from Eastern and Western Healing techniques such as Native American healing, Ayurvedic medicine, and Energy healing.
According to Emily and Robert, "The biggest hurdle to our own healing can be what we don't know we don't know; we love having the opportunity to work with these clients, and to really precisely get to the core of what they're struggling with. We consider a Spiritual Experience to be a change in consciousness, and when we get to see the bigger picture through healing techniques and ceremonies like we've been blessed to learn, that change in consciousness flows more organically. Offering these gifts to others is an amazing gift for us."
ASR offers clients an opportunity to dive into their own transformational journeys. It begins with a smudging ceremony then guided meditation and energy clearing. The group is asked to reflect on their experience in the meditation and are invited to choose an animal medicine which is an archetypal tool helping to deepen their understanding of their own nature then relate it to their current situation. Groups may also include yoga, tai chi, other gentle movements, vibrational healing through music or techniques which encourage calming energy.
Most classes are facilitated at a beautiful isolated area of Laguna Beach. The goal of teaching these tools is to provide clients with a spiritual experience that will expand through these consciousness exercises.
It is sometimes refreshing to change the scenery and energy when typical programming can be monotonous. Jose Juarez, an alumni of Lighthouse Treatment says, “this experience is an awesome opportunity for the clients who struggle with the idea of spirituality and a higher power to explore what else is out there.”
