I have believed for a long time that 12 steppers will reach a point in the recovery process where a deeper look at "Living the Spiritual life is not a Theory, we have to live it" found in AA literature. This book provides a means to do that for those who use Buddhist Practice as thier Higher Power. Although not conference approved, it is used as a text for groups who need a non-theistic approach to the 12 steps. It will not replace the Big Book, or the Steps, or a Sponsor but is a terrific way to deepen Spiritual Growth. Kevin Griffin is to be congratualted both for his understanding of the AA program and Buddhist Dharma.

I didn't know when I bought this book that it was aligned with the Twelve Step Program of AA. I thought it was just on Buddhism. When I started to read even just the first few pages I realized I'd stumbled onto a great book with great insight. It's pointed out that we all have addictions and we can all get something from the AA program if there is something in our lives that has a grip on us. It could even be as simple as negative thinking patterns - that's an addiction though not a physical one. This books is beautifully written by someone who didn't know he could write. Well he does, and very well without ego or preaching but with understanding and sharing. If you're interested at all in Buddhism and meditation, this is a good book to read. Its simple language and guidance allows the reader to open their mind to ways to adapt the teachings to their own life.

Although I've only scratched the surface of this book by Kevin Griffin, it has added new dimension and insights to strengthen my AA program. It complements the principles I've embraced over the last 20+ years.
