Millions of recovering addicts have been helped by the traditional 12-Step Program of Alcoholics Anonymous, but many find themselves unable to relate to some of the language and religious tone of the Steps. Kevin Griffin offers an alternative—a new approach to the 12-Step Program based on Buddhist teachings and time-honored meditation practices .In this six-session audio course, Griffin shares personal insights from his own struggle with addiction and offers guided meditation practices to support each step of the recovery process. Listeners will discover universally accessible ways to relate to the idea of a Higher Power, how the wisdom from the Four Noble Truths and the concept of karma can be applied to AA’s life review, and much more.
