Exit the Cave
Blaine Hogan

Sometimes the greatest gift you can receive is for your life to fall apart. After years stuck in a painful cycle fueled by past abuse and ongoing addiction, actor, artist, and director Blaine Hogan finally hit rock bottom. No longer able to hide behind the veneer of success or find comfort in the shadows of compulsion, Blaine was forced to look at the story his life was telling and realize he’d lost the plot.

If you’ve ever been stuck, addicted, ashamed, discontented, or lost, take courage–a richer, more imaginative, and meaningful life is waiting for you just outside the cave.
