His essay "Move for Recovery" is featured in the January/February 2023 issue of Spirituality + Health.

"In addiction…we lose connection with that deep part of ourselves. Once we do connect to that deeper part of ourselves, that's where there's the potential and possibility for a sense of freedom, a sense of expansion and connection. Not only to that part of ourselves, but also to other people and the world around us."

In this episode, Steven and Rabbi Rami talk about overcoming addiction, soul care, and practicing mindful movement.
