WHEN YOUR HEART BELONGS TO AN ADDICT
Listen to the Big Blend Radio interview with Cyndee Rae Lutz, author of “When Your Heart Belongs to an Addict: A Healing Perspective”, that weaves the painful account of her son’s drug addiction with the healing strategies and spiritual wisdom that transformed her life—and can transform others.
When Your Heart Belongs to an Addict, it changes how you view the world. What begins as an altruistic endeavor to free your loved one from addiction turns into an obsessive quest to “love” the addict into wellness. This twisted form of love undermines what you so desperately wish to achieve and makes you lose your own way.
Cyndee Rae Lutz has experienced the pain and powerlessness of watching someone she loved get lost in addiction. In When Your Heart Belongs to an Addict, Lutz shows how her struggles with an addicted son have taught her about the addictions and afflictions we all confront—about individual frailties and the various ways we try to manage the unmanageable.
Lutz weaves the painful account of her son’s drug addiction with the healing strategies and spiritual wisdom that transformed her life—and can transform others, whether they’re facing a crisis or wanting to change direction. Her fusion of powerful ideas, concrete steps and pertinent examples result in a book that both liberates and empowers the often-beleaguered family member or friend to reclaim their life. And this just might be the best thing they can do for their loved one. Often, when they get better, their loved one gets better too.
Cyndee Rae Lutz’s formal education includes holding CPA, securities, and insurance licenses; a BS in Business; and an MBA in Finance and Accounting, She is a Registered Yoga Teacher, and sponsors others in a 12-step program for those whose loved ones are battling or recovering from addiction. She is also a member of the Colorado Consortium for Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention and the Denver Women’s Press Club. In her free time, Lutz logs miles upon miles in her walking shoes and practices yoga and meditation. A lifelong learner, she is open to all she hasn’t yet imagined. She is married and lives with her husband and two dogs in Centennial, Colorado. For more information, visit www.cyndeeraelutz.com.
