Theo Fleury is a former NHL All-Star, Stanley Cup winner and Olympic Gold Medalist. He’s also the two-time best-selling author of Playing with Fire and Conversations With a Rattlesnake. While Theo enjoys his hockey memories and accolades, he feels his true life’s purpose is what he does today: creating healing through conversation, particularly in the areas of addiction, sexual abuse and childhood trauma. In this episode we talk about:
  • Why he moved to Belfast to play for The Giants
  • How his time in Northern Ireland turned his life around
  • His journey to sobriety
  • And the daily practices that helped him overcome trauma, depression and addiction.
