Who we are

New Beginnings

Flying Sober was created for one soul purpose, to support you from the ground up! And that is through self exploration and the way you see yourself in the world. The fact that we are no longer bound by a dependency, leaves us to venture through life like a bird soaring the skies. The possibilities for growth are endless and we would like to be a big part of that. Our goal is to educate and expand your perspective by bringing you relevant information, sober adventures and ongoing resources.  

Our Core Principles

  • Find your primary purpose by developing your God given talents.
  • Do the things you feel most passionate about with NO excuses.
  • Be kind to yourself and cultivate love.
  • Travel as often as possible!
  • Hang out with like minded people.
  • Embrace change & see the positive in it.
  • Don’t ever sell yourself short! In ANY areas of your life.
  • Always put your recovery first.
  • And NEVER pick up (dial numbers!)

Finding Yourself

“Finding yourself" is not really how it works. You aren't a ten-dollar bill in last winter's coat pocket. You are also not lost. Your true self is right there, buried under cultural conditioning, other people's opinions, and inaccurate conclusions you drew up about who your are over time. Finding yourself, is actually about returning to yourself and recreating your life. An unlearning, an excavation, a remembering who you were before the world got its hands on you.

Note from the founder of Flying Sober:

Returning to myself has been by far my biggest accomplishment. It was like taking an old costume off; heavy and worn out! No more pretending, no more lying, no more pain. My story is similar to so many others, I was dependent on everything outside myself. Mainly, so that I wouldn’t have to deal with my emotions. Until one day, I said no more and this is when I reclaimed my powers back.

I realized "I am not this body. I am a vessel that is a much greater part of the vast universe."

Today, I look to give back with my true authentic self. I give phrase to those who Sponsor and those who do Service; This is my way of doing both. I have started Flying Sober mainly to bring people TOGETHER, but also to kick it up a notch and add more FUN to the mix. How do I intend to do that you may ask? Travel of course has always been on top of my list and I plan on offering that on a continuous basis. It tickles our natural endorphins and is by far the biggest tool to expand our horizons. My experience in putting the past couple of sober trips together have inspired me and propelled me forward. It has been a true labor of Love and well worth it because of all the wonders that came from it. In April of 2020, during the Pandemic, I started a Podcast about relationships in sobriety, among other things. Who isn’t confused about relationships in general!? Check out Flying Sober Podcast

My dear sponsor always says “if you’re doing God’s work only good can come out of it.” Hence, Love is God, the rest is smoke. And that has been the case from the very beginning in all my ventures on this sober journey. My biggest driving force is and will always remain my Higher Power.

Love & light to you all,
