Fall seven times, stand up eight.
We created the Recovery/Sobriety Motto Medallion to give you a reminder of the path of revival.
The idea for the visual representation of the cacti was inspired by a story by the unorthodox psychiatrist Milton H. Erickson. An alcoholic patient came to him seeking help for his addiction. Erickson suggested to him the following, “you go out to the Botanical Gardens. You look at all the cacti there and marvel at cacti that can survive three years without water, without rain. And do a lot of thinking”. Erickson’s successful therapeutic technique with this patient displays the effectiveness of indirect suggestion, applied symbolically.
The cacti in the desert represent life, growth, resilience, in the face of adversity.
The idea for this Motto Medallion was born from the desire for a tool that could be carried in your pocket or put on display. Keep it for yourself or share it with a friend.
We hope you will join us in our mission to inspire and empower as many people as we can!
