Michael Magyar is a graduate of Framingham
State University and the creator of this course. Michael earned a Bachelor of Sociology Degree with a
Psychology minor in 1999. Michael became one of the leading presenters among
inmates on the disease of addiction during his time in jail at the Essex County
Correctional Facility (The Farm) in Lawrence, Massachusetts. While on parole
and probation, he created the Addict’s Map of Consciousness and presented it to
the homeless veterans during his inpatient stay at the Crescent House
Transitional Residence Program in Lowell, Massachusetts. The map is the
backbone of addiction recovery. It will allow the student of this course to experience Zen-like moments and will most certainly question his or her own understanding of social learning, cognitive processes and behavior theory.
The disease of addiction begins as a
disease of the spirit and usually ends up as a disease of the body, mind and
spirit. It becomes progressively worse until finally devouring the addict’s
moral, physical, mental, emotional, economic, social and legal life. Because addiction is
a spiritual disease it requires a spiritual remedy. Our modern day treatment
plans have not been that successful. About 1 in every 50 American men is
currently behind bars from addiction related charges. More and more people are
dying every day from overdose and relapse. Perhaps it’s time to put away the
brain scans and magnetic resonance imaging and go back to school -- very old
school. Choosing a treatment plan from one of our ancient spiritual doctrines,
with the concept of God or not, may give the addict the best chance from
becoming the complete failure that is addiction.
Finding a way out of fear is the way out of
addiction and may provide the addict the best chance to keep his or her life.
This course is about recognizing your fears and learning how your own
addiction to instincts naturally makes you an addict. This course centers around the spiritual principles found throughout the literature of Narcotics Anonymous and
Kavita Maharaj, an internationally recognized registered meditation teacher and trainer provided insight on Vipassana meditation for this course.
