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.
Please download and print the workshop handouts prior to the first workshop session.
The link for the handouts and information on how to make any donations will be emailed privately.
Please note: the worksheets are copyrighted material and only for participants of the Back to Basics workshop. They are not for public distribution. Please do not distribute them without acknowledging their source.
The Back to Basics book can be ordered from Amazon or directly from Wally P. Here are both links: http://www.amazon.com/Back-Basics-Alcoholics-Anonymous-Beginners/dp/0965772012 and http://www.aabacktobasics.org
7th Tradition: Every 12 Step group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.
Emotional Sobriety 12 Steps in 4 Hours has no dues or fees, but, we do have expenses. Contributions are greatly appreciated, so that this material can continue to be presented. Suggested donation: $5.00.
After our expenses have been covered, any remaining funds will be donated to Faith With Works.
We are looking forward to participating with you in this Recovery Workshop on Sunday.
With blessings for peace and recovery,
Devorah & Shira
