“Facilitators, experience the joy for yourselves. Don’t miss your own healing. Learn the skills that changed my life and family!” These are Ed Khouri’s themes in the completed Restarting Facilitators Training DVD. Learn how God raised Ed out of a wheelchair after 10 years of disability to lead this vision and train people across the world. Listen as he pours out how God changed his life, heart and mind so he could be full of joy and strength. Learn how these principles and the joy God has with us form the basis for Restarting with explicit examples of how to do each of the exercises. Ed stresses time after time that facilitators must practice and experience these exercises to experience joyful recovery in their own lives.
“Information does not change people!” Ed declares emphatically in the introduction. Experience the vision, the process and the results with Ed as he demonstrates 20 different exercises used in Restarting. Many examples include watching Ed lead groups through the activities as well as explain to facilitators what to watch for and how to guide. Starting with the first segment, you will experience Ed’s passion for the changed lives of facilitators themselves. No more “white knuckles”, no more “fake it ‘til you make it”, no more “treading water” to stay alive. It is time to thrive and experience the joy!
Ed has presented the case for change in how we do recovery. The current 25-30% success rate is just not enough. Now the world is asking for the vision Ed brings and the model that has changed his life and family – and he has responded by sharing his vision and passion for life-transforming recovery with ministry leaders and workers from over 40 nations from every inhabited continent in just the past year alone. Ed is now receiving more international training requests than he can possibly manage!
If we keep training recovery leaders to do the same things that produced the current results, Ed tells us, we will continue to get the current results. Now is the time for a new generation of recovery leaders to be raised up who carry the passion to help men and women suffering from addiction, trauma, abuse, spiritual dryness and painful relationships develop life-transforming relationships with God – and with joyful recovery communities across the world. Ed believes that it’s time for you, and the hurting men and women that you serve, to experience the power of a joyful recovery!
Without training that changes you, where will you – and the people you serve – be?

Restarting facilitators are strongly advised to make use of the THRIVE training to learn, practice and develop the 19 brain skills that Ed refers to in this training package. The Belonging Module that is part of your Thriving Recover Your Life program fulfills the entrance requirements for THRIVE Changing My Generation training. For details on where and when THRIVE training is available check www.thrivetoday.org for details. Most people are shocked to find that the training takes three whole weeks, three years of doing exercises and at least one practice partner to work out the brain skill exercises each week for those three years. Yet, if you were going to learn to play an instrument, learn a foreign language or become a great golfer you would soon realize that the brain does not acquire skills cheaply. When you have tried the things that come easily and cheaply then come to THRIVE and experience the joy.
