This book brings together a series of short discussions from various authors who interpret the Twelve Steps. The Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous form the cornerstone of one of the most effective programs for recovery from alcoholism. The steps have also been successfully adapted for use in the treatment of many other dependencies. This book brings together for the first time a series of short discussions that interpret each of the Twelve Steps--from the admission of individual powerlessness over alcohol that occurs in Step One, to the moral inventory of Step Four and the spiritual awakening of Step Twelve.Each discussion has a separate author, demonstrating the diversity of voices that is at the heart of AA, and each author provides insights that keep the steps fresh and meaningful, whether they've been read once or a hundred times.

"Show me a drunk and I'll show you someone in search of God", is a saying that could be derived from Carl Jung. Jung wrote to Bill Wilson, founder of Alcoholics Anonymous (A.A.), about his understanding of Rowland Hazard's alcoholism: "His craving for alcohol was the equivalent, on a low level, of the spiritual thirst of our being for wholeness, expressed in medieval language: the union with God". .The author visited the archives of the headquarters of A.A. in New York, and discovered new communications between Carl Jung and Bill Wilson. For the first time this correspondence shows Jung's respect for A.A. and in turn, its influence on him. In particular, this research shows how Bill Wilson was encouraged by Jung's writings to promote the spiritual aspect of recovery as opposed to the conventional medical model which has failed so abysmally.The book overturns the long-held belief that Jung distrusted groups. Indeed, influenced by A.A.'s success, Jung gave "complete and detailed instructions" on how the A.A. group format could be developed further and used by "general neurotics".Wilson was an advocate of treating some alcoholics with LSD in order to deflate the ego and induce a spiritual experience. He wrote to Jung for his comments on this controversial idea. Jung was stridently opposed to "short cuts", to transcendent experiences; however he died before he could reply to Wilson's comprehensive letter.The author explains how alcoholism can be diagnosed and understood by professionals and the lay person; by examining the detailed case histories of Jung, the author gives graphic examples of its psychological and behavioural manifestations.By combining the narratives of recovering alcoholics with a Jungian perspective, the author explains how the program of the 12 steps can lead to a journey of spiritual awakening or in Jungian terms, individuation. This book explains in plain words the language of A.A. and takes the reader inside a meeting to show how it works in practice.The final chapter deals with the criticism that both organisations have "cultish" aspects.

Maurice C. received the gift of sobriety more than twenty-five years ago through membership in Alcoholics Anonymous. Through AA, Maurice found the ability to let go of the past and let God take the future. In God Is at the Meeting, Maurice gives insight into a world where hurt and shame lead people to feel that they are “less than” and that they must build walls to protect themselves. Those walls get higher and higher until alcohol or drugs seem to be the only relief. Once enslaved, the alcoholic tries desperately to maintain and strengthen the walls of self-protection, to do it all on his or her own until, finally, the effort becomes too exhausting. If this is you—listen. You don’t have to live that way any longer. There is a way out, and this way out has worked for thousands of people just like you for more than seventy-five years. If you will let Him, God will walk with you through the twelve steps to sobriety and a life without walls. This book is not meant in any way to replace the time-tested books of Alcoholics Anonymous. It is one man’s insight into finding, leaning on and growing into a stronger relationship with God as you work through the steps.

A gripping exploration of the history of the Twelve Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous and their relevance and applicability today. A gripping exploration of the history of the Twelve Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous and their relevance and applicability today. Today, almost everywhere you turn, celebrity misadventures with alcohol and drug use, overdoses, and relapses are splashed across the headlines. Popular starlets are "doing time" in rehab for theft and misconduct. Yesterday's heroes congregate before the camera for a Twelve-Step meeting or a therapy session. Although this state of media attention has made the public increasingly aware of the dangers of drinking and drugging, what does this mean for Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and similar 12-Step programs that were founded on such Traditions as anonymity and not drawing the AA name into public controversy?In Living AA's 12 Traditions in Today's World, seasoned writer and AA historian Mel B. uses transcripts of speeches by Bill W. and original documents chronicling the development of the 12 Traditions to examine their importance to the survival, integrity, and success of AA and other 12-Step organizations. Popular speaker and archivist Mike F. then looks at the relevance of each of the Traditions in the twenty-first century--their importance for recovering people's ongoing sobriety and for the future of the Fellowship.Together, Mel B. and Mike F. explore what aspects of the Traditions hold strong and what have been overlooked or have even evolved since they were formally adopted at the First International AA Convention in 1950. In the end, they find strength and hope in a radical organizational model and culture born from a lasting concept: principles over personalities.Mel B. is a long-time AA member and the author of many classic recovery titles, including My Search for Bill W., Walk in Dry Places, New Wine: The Spiritual Roots of the Twelve Step Miracle, and Ebby: The Man Who Sponsored Bill W.Mike Fitzpatrick is one of the leading archivists and historians specializing in the development of the Twelve Step movement. He has worked with authors and movie producers, providing material for their work, and is the co-author of 1,000 Years of Sobriety.
