Where to Find 12-Step Spiritual Support

posted by chattering mind

Thank you for all the sincere and supportive posts on the item I wrote last week about Alcoholics Anonymous.

Beliefnet has an ongoing 12-Step Spirituality support group.

And here‘s the last piece we ran about Buddhism and the 12 Steps, accompanied by excellent AA-related links including Paul O’Donnell’s interview with Susan Cheever about her biography of AA founder Bill Wilson.

Cheever commits several factual errors and omissions in her bio of Bill Wilson. And often, her own biases bleed through. I liked it anyway. This reads like a novel, but never soft pedals the complexity and challenges of addicition and recovery. While I didn’t learn enything new about Bill Wilson or AA, this did enhance my respect for the simplicity and genius of the 12-Steps. To complement the article on Buddhism and the 12-Steps, here’s another that describes how many(like Catholics) experience the program. Good imagery and first person accounts. “>http://uscatholic.claretians.org/site/News2?page=NewsArticle&id=6143&news_iv_ctrl=1283&abbr=usc_&JServSessionIdr005=z2hh0lsfv2.app14b>

CM's Final Posts: You Can Fill the Space
Eighteen years ago, I wrote an article for a magazine that got me called in for a taped interview with a Fox TV morning news anchor. Being an effective communicator and a skillful public speaker was a dream of mine at the time. And still is. After some 30 minutes of prep with the station's hair-and-

Websites to Visit, Blogs to Read
Here are some blogs and websites I like. It's not a complete list. But it's a start. The first is called New Moon Journal and it is written by Michele Bailey-Lessirard, a life coach, collage artist, and "shamanic astrologer." On the opening page of her site, you'll find a little slide show of her am
