THE ART OF LIVING HOMES
The Art of Living Homes (AOL) are FARR-Certified sober-living communities focused on empowering men and women to achieve a life free from substance by developing new life skills organically learned through the “AOL Connection Matrix”.
We have two five acre campuses, each with the ability to support 12 men and women in recovery. Each campus has multiple homes, meeting facilities and wellness spaces.
The Art of Living Home, together with iLearn Life, Inc. complements a 12-Step Program of Recovery. Our program is designed to direct our community members toward a successful, lasting recovery and a life of purpose and meaning. iLearn Life, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) which seeks cultural innovation through community.
MISSION & VISION
We believe the opposite of addiction is connection.
Our Mission is to help each participant find connection, authenticity and relationships on the other side of addiction so they can experience the Art of Living.
After all, Sobriety, like life itself, isn’t just about staying sober. Isn’t that the point? To find life on the other side of addiction?
A MASTER IN THE ART OF LIVING
“A person who is a master at the ‘art of living’ makes little distinction between their work and their play, their labor and their leisure, their love and their religion, their education and their recreation, their mind and their body.
They hardly know which is which.
They simply pursue their vision of excellence and grace in whatever they do, leaving others to decide whether they are working or playing — to them, they are always doing both.”
THE CONNECTION MATRIX
AOL uses community events to hold ourselves accountable by which (1) we use connection to build an authentic community and (2) we use authentic community to build connection. Between the forces of community and connection, we find the path to sustained sobriety.
Whether a 12-Step group, Fireside Chat or Fellowship Day, Peer-2-Peer support means meeting others who know what it’s like to be addicted and to seek recovery, to struggle with the daily pressures and stress, to overcome the guilt, sadness, confusion, to try to find a new job, rebuild careers, renew or end relationships and to rediscover self-esteem after hitting a “rock bottom”.
BECOME A PARTICIPANT
We seek Program Participants who wish to discover the Art of Living within themselves. While living on a campus and experiencing the 12 events surrounding recovery, life shifts from control mode to reveal mode. From survival to thriving. From a mundane lifestyle to one that reflects the miracle of life. Our process is simple.
