The Opposite of Addiction


The Middle Way welcomes Rev. Paul Witmer into a playful and intimate conversation on addiction and substance use. Paul is a pastor in the United Church of Christ, a spiritual director, and is currently in ministry with incarcerated women at the Iowa Correctional Institution for Women. We talk about recovery, attachments, numbing, and the practice of noticing.
