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.

"Awesome, puts things in perspective"
I actually got this book by mistake, I thought I was getting a book on the 12 steps but I had no idea that this book was directly related to Buddhism. So initially I was a little disappointed, but it was actually a really good mistake, I guess God knows why everything in life happens for a reason.
I had zero knowledge about Buddhism, nor was I really interested in it, I am a firm believer in God and Jesus, but I do not like attachments to any specific religion, so I decided to give the book a shot. And, after listening to the first chapter, I just kept on going, and realized that you don't have to be any specific religion to listen to this book, the way he relates the 12 steps to the teachings of Buddhism is actually really cool, I really enjoyed this and it was a learning experience. I also really enjoyed doing the meditations and is a book that I will listen to many times over. I recommend it for anyone that wants to look at the 12 steps from a different perspective
Essential reading for anyone in recovery. On my list for re-read on a regular basis.
"Perfect for recovery! Would listen again for sure"
Amazing I love it. Will listen to it over and over again. Very inspiring and helpful.
