The Power of Addiction and the Addiction of Power. An 18min talk by Gabor Maté where he articulates in a very gentle and clear way, the deeper, causal nature of addiction. A few comments from people who listen to this - "It's a comforting feeling to hear somebody speak so much truth in just 18 minutes about a topic that is so misunderstood." and "I needed this arrangement of words to start rearranging my life."
Hartmut researches and designs evidence-based programs and classes in Health & Nutrition, Mindfulness, Anger Management and Addiction Recovery/Prevention. He is trained to deliver and facilitate government accredited programs for local governments and the NSW Cancer council in Health & Nutrition along with presenting to associations and groups like the CWA and a gathering of Buddhist Monks.
In addition below we present mostly unedited recordings of online classes conducted with adults at a world class residential recovery & learning centre in Australia, starting at the time of the Covid-19 lockdown in April 2020. Participants have courageously and kindly given permission for these class recordings to be shared online via these videos.
The classes form part of four concurrently run evidence-based programs
Health & Nutrition
Moving Forward (Addiction Recovery/Prevention)
All classes are designed, continuously developed and facilitated by Hartmut Michael Günther based on evidence-based research and client feedback, engagement and class attendance.
Class recording from the Mindfulness Program
Class recording from the Health & Nutrition Program
The classes have unique attributes -
Participants are given choice to choose a specific topic that is of interest and relevant to them under the broader context of the Program being delivered. For instance, in the Health & Nutrition class, participants get to choose one of the 28 essential nutrients (like Magnesium, Protein, Vitamin B6, Calcium etc.) and research and present to the rest of the class on that key nutrient. And, in the Mindfulness class, Hartmut has created a broad visual map/mandala of content under the umbrella of Mindfulness (like non-judgement and non-reactivity, awareness, vulnerability, meditation, listening and more) from which participants also choose what is pertinent and engaging for them.
Participants are given an opportunity too freely express themselves via a short presentation on their understanding and research of a topic (they have chosen), followed by group discussion and additional insights and content from the facilitator.

Class recording from the Mindfulness Program. Occasionally classes include a short 10-20minute video/audio clip delivered from a renowned teacher who is an expert or master of their field. This class contains a talk from Brené Brown on Vulnerability. (Not included here for obvious Copyright reasons)
The Mindfulness classes recorded here form part of an overall curriculum that is informed by decades of evidence based research, expertise from individuals who are leaders and indeed masters in their field of endeavour and, more poignantly, informed by aspirations of human being since the dawn of time to feel a deep sense of belonging, meaning and peace.
As Mindfulness touches on every aspect of our lives, we tend to focus on a particular topic in each class.
The classes are dynamic and very interactive and indeed, we have had two classes on the same topic within Mindfulness with different participants that have completely different interactions, expressions and questions.
Mindfulness Classes often contain a 10-15 minute Meditation component.
Mindfulness is the exploration and practice of two streams of endeavour. First it is a personal exploration into the frontiers of blissful consciousness. Second, it is a conscious practice and discipline in awareness so that we are not just a slave of our thoughts, emotions and personal and collective past experiences, commonly called our Mind and Psyche. Both form part of a lifetime aspiration towards peace, wellbeing and enjoying an utterly fulfilled life.

Ongoing Mentoring, Inspiration, Education: Usually only needs between 15-30mins, one to one, as needed or requested. However, ongoing learning/mentoring cost can be dramatically reduced if you invite others (minimum 3; maximum 5) to join you (at $35 each) in your own private GoToMeeting (like Zoom) online class/group/FAQ session, facilitated by Hartmut, that usually goes for 1 hour. Therefore 3-5 people only pay $35 each for an hour class that is very powerfull, insightful and engaging (we also learn a lot from each other).
