Scott Kiloby on Covid: Practical and Emotional Care
This interview was recorded in the spring of 2020
Scott Kiloby is a noted international speaker, well-respected enlightenment (nonduality) teacher who has helped thousands of people all over the world, an entrepreneur, creative spirit, and a prolific author of seven books that simplify and demystify authentic spiritual awakening as it is taught in the East.
Scott has broken new ground in a number of areas, including being the co-founder and owner of the first two treatment centers in the U.S. to focus primarily on mindfulness, self-inquiry and nondual awareness as the central path to freedom in recovery: the Kiloby Center for Recovery (day treatment) and the Natural Rest House (24 hour care facility). Scott suggests you start by reading his book, “Natural Rest for Addiction” if your issue is addiction.
Scott is an innovator in the addiction field, which for decades has shamed, judged, punished, and instilled fear into clients to keep them clean (with a relatively low success rate). After studying that archaic model, Scott developed the New Model of Recovery which contains a zero tolerance for shaming, judging or punishing people whether they are using or not.
Instead, Scott focuses on showing people unconditional love and using the Kiloby Inquiries to heal their pain that drives the addiction in the first place. This has been the central key to the success of Scott’s work.
Scott’s work is in no way limited to addiction recovery. Scott is also the developer of several forms of inquiry that help people with a wide array of human conditions other than addiction such as trauma, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, OCD, and general unhappiness with life by teaching them to live in the present moment instead of constantly ruminating on past and future.
Scott is also the founder of two inquiry-based mindfulness training certification programs that have trained people in 15 different countries.
Scott’s work is considered to be on the cutting edge of enlightenment teachings and in the recovery and trauma world.
