Product Information

"Chris Grosso comes at us with a deeply intense and personal sharing of his life journey reminding us that you don't have to be a goody-two shoes to seek goodness and a spiritual life. It is often working through our darkest depths that we learn to become the light. Laying out some really easy practices we can all apply to our daily lives and advice from notable teachers of all lineages for all levels, this is a must read."--Jessica Pimentel, actress Orange Is The New Black, Tibetan Buddhist, and singer of Alekhine's Gun "This inspiring compendium of spiritual friends can guide us as we navigate the way through our own hell toward the light of love."--Alex Grey & Allyson Grey "Chris Grosso like myself is a searcher. He is on a quest. He is thirsty. For what you might ask? Wisdom! It is so rare these days to want to know truth, that people who seek it are thought of as odd. Out of the norm, or naive. Hunter once said "when the going gets weird, the weird go pro." We are well beyond weird now. We are in the twilight zone of reality. We need the Chris Grosso's of the world to tell us what they've seen n where we are. Read it!"--Bob Forrest, Chris Grosso is a Warrior of the Heart. With humility, honesty and courage AS his weapons, he does battle with the shadows in the dark corners of our hearts.--Krishna Das, Grammy Nominated Kirtan Musician What a read! What a ride! Chris Grosso shares his journey and brings in a team of others who tell the truth, give us hope, light and direction. This is spirituality in action. Thank you for this valuable contribution.--Raghunath (aka Ray Cappo) International yoga teacher, speaker and singer of Youth of Today and Shelter Chris Grosso has assembled a team to help aid in solving the addiction crisis in America. It's not a new Drug Czar, and expensive ad campaign aimed at the youth, or resuscitating the half century long War on Drugs. The solution is an integrated treatment plan in which each individual is a participant in their own inner and outer healing. We have suffered too long through the darkness and despair of mental illness, trauma, material craving, and spiritual emptiness. Thankfully a new recovery community has surfaced with a road map to personal and social wholeness.--Eben Sterling, Thrasher Magazine, practicing yogi, recovered addict of twenty-one years Chris Grosso comes from a place of compassion to bring hope to people who are suffering. He's been through it all and the result is a quality of empathy that makes Dead Set on Living such a valuable book. We need a fresh view on the way to recover and this remarkable gathering of voices from all sorts of perspectives--traditional to innovative to experimental--opens myriad doors to integrated healing as it guides readers toward their individual path to wholeness. I've personally seen Chris work with many of the young adults at one of my facilities over the last three years and he has a special way of making deep and authentic connections quickly. I believe this book will create a similar experience with its readers."--Jamison Monroe, Founder and CEO of Newport Youth Rehabilitation Facility "Chris Grosso's Dead Set on Living is an awesome work, the totally honest account of a man seeking the realities of life and death, compassion and indifference, sorrow and joy--as if they really mattered. He tells his own moving story, holding nothing back, consults with many amazing people who work with depression, addiction, etc., and shares with us his process of integrating their teachings and advice in a vivid and beautiful way. If you and your loved one's struggle with life in an existential way, you will love this noble book--it will bring you courage and many blessings."--Robert A.F. Thurman, author of Man of Peace: The Illustrated Life Story of the Dalai Lama of Tibet "Dead Set on Living offers a deep, intimate look at why we continued disparaging ourselves. This is essential reading for anyone looking to finally break the ruthless cycle."--Richard Rohr, OFM, Founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation
