Emotional Sobriety And Food 12 Steps in 4 Hours
Beginning Sunday August 17, 2014 at 8:30 PM EST, we are excited to offer a 12 Step Back to Basics Workshop via the telephone.
The meeting dates are: August 17, 2014, August 24, 2014, September 7, 2014, and September 14, 2014. There is no meeting on August 31, 2014 — Labor Day Weekend.
This workshop is open to all members of the 12 Step Community, but is being done in terms of food. All participants are invited to mentally substitute their own addictive or compulsive behaviors if those are other than food.
The meeting format is based on the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous and the historical research of Wally P. It recreates the four 1-hour beginners meetings that were so effective in AA in the 1940s.
We will be using this book: Back to Basics: The Alcoholics Anonymous Beginners’ Meetings: “Here are the steps we took….” in Four One-Hour Sessions by Wally P.
We will not just talk about the 12 Steps; we will do them together, just as the AA pioneers did back in the early days. As a group, we will complete all 12 steps in 4 to 5 one hour sessions to deepen our recovery, serenity, and inner peace.
How to Register to Reserve Your Seat: Please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. In this email, please state your commitment to attend the entire workshop of 4 sessions. (All 12 steps are important.)
Please include your name, phone number, and time zone, and whether you already have, or whether you will need a 5th step sharing partner.
You are welcome to share this invitation with your 12 Step friends.
You will need to register via email in order to receive a link that will enable you to download and print the workshop handouts. Please print these handouts prior to the first workshop session.
Preparation: Since we actually do all 12 Steps, everyone will need a sponsor or sharing partner to do Step 5 and help with Steps 8 and 9. Sharing partners are to be another person of the same gender. Ideally, your usual sponsor or sharing partner will also be attending this workshop.
If you need a sponsor or sharing partner for the workshop, we will be providing a list of available sharing partners as well as the times they will be available for the 5th step process. You will be able to contact them directly to arrange a time for your sharing.
