I met Mikael Lund at a Tony Robbins event years ago. Mikael is the CEO / Founder of Human Gardening, a drug, alcohol, gaming, codependency treatment center based in Sweden. Amidst the global pandemic, many are finding themselves in isolation. During our conversation, Mikael helps us to think about the risk of addictions, coping mechanisms, and shame in times of isolation and stress. Addiction is agnostic; anyone can become an addict, whether you are wealthy, poor, or in-between. If this episode is something you feel you can use right now, in a moment of stress or uncertainty, listen. I am excited to be able to bring this conversation to you today.
Mikeal is one of Sweden's foremost experts and continues to be an active dependency therapist with 25 years of experience in this area. You can also find his wisdom online via his content, whereby he educates people around the world about how to cope with shame, unhealthy coping mechanisms, and the lessons he has learned through his rehabilitation journey.
Michael's experience of working with alcoholism and addiction extends from boardrooms to prisons and includes supporting big-name celebrities as well. He has even participated as a therapist in the TV program Lyxfällan called "The Luxury Trap" where contestants were grappling with overspending. He also frequently lectures for municipalities, colleges, universities, and companies, including at Malmö University and earlier in his career at Karolinska Institutet.
