This exercise works mostly with adults. It can be done on teens, however never do this exercise on one that has not gone through puberty. This exercise works with the part of the brain that controls addiction, known as the pleasure pathway. This exercise works with dopamine transmitters. Spiritual addiction is the same as any other addiction as far as the brain is concerned. This is for people who can’t let go of spiritual pain which blocks pleasure from being experienced. These people are usually described as spiritual shoppers. They keep looking for some joy in life hoping to find joy in the context of spiritual acceptance.
