Overview

Mindfulness and the 12 Steps: Living Recovery in the Present Moment by Thérèse Jacobs-Stewart

A fresh resource to help those in recovery from addiction find their own spiritual path through the Buddhist practice of mindfulness.

For those of us in recovery, Mindfulness and the 12 Steps offers a fresh approach to developing our own spiritual path through the Buddhist practice of mindfulness, or bringing one's awareness to focus on the present moment. We can revisit each of the Twelve Steps, exploring the interplay of ideas between mindfulness and Twelve Step traditions--from the idea of living "one day at a time" to the emphasis on prayer and meditation--and learn to incorporate mindfulness into our path toward lifelong sobriety.Through reflections, questions for inquiry, and stories from Buddhist teachers and others who practice mindfulness in recovery, Mindfulness and the 12 Steps will help us awaken new thinking and insights into what it means to live fully--body, mind, and spirit--in the here and now.

The author takes us through each Step combining personal stories, Eastern Philosophies and mindful practices. Rather than following Steps on faith, we are given examples of how different methods can complement one and other. You get the best of both worlds. Doing the practices, you are able to experience change as you progress through the book. The daunting prospect of recovery is undertaken with calm confidence.
