"The spirituality gained from combining 12-Step ideas, Buddhism, yoga, and meditation will help everyone heal, no matter what his or her afflictions may be. The Power of Vow thoroughly addresses and dissects a powerful practice much needed in Western Buddhist and 12 Step circles. It's a tool for mindfulness, for 'turning it over, ' and for developing humility and forgiveness. Read it, do it!" -Kevin Griffin, Author of One Breath at a Time and Burning Desire: Dharma, God and the Path of Recovery

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
10/14/2013
Littlejohn (The 12-Step Buddhist) is clearly quite familiar with the worlds of both Buddhism and addiction. Like many people, he experienced frustration at the perceived Judeo-Christian bent of 12-step programs. But he didn't want to abandon the program because it was working for him. Instead, he worked to incorporate into the program key Buddhist concepts that will keep addicts on a firmer path to sobriety, alleviate suffering, and provide deeper spirituality. Littlejohn offers a number of recommended texts that readers might look to for support and specific help. However, his book is sometimes scattered. Littlejohn's writing is alternately serious and humorous—and that may prove difficult for some readers struggling with addiction. While Littlejohn offers many good points, his message is sometimes hampered by his lack of focus.
