The meeting format is based on the Big Book and the historical research of Wally P.
It re-enacts the four 1-hour beginners meetings that were so effective in the 1940s.
We will be using the book:
Back to Basics: The Alcoholics Anonymous Beginners’ Meetings: “Here are the steps we took….” in Four One-Hour Sessions by Wally P.
It is not required, but, we recommend that you bring your Big Book and/or purchase the Back to Basics book.
The Back to Basics book can be ordered from Amazon or directly from Wally P.
Here are both links:
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 do the 12 steps in 4-5 one hour sessions and deepen our recovery, serenity and peace.
Preparation: Everyone will need a sponsor or sharing partner to do Step 5 and help with Steps 8 and 9. Sharing partners can be your usual sponsor or another participant who is also attending the workshop and of the same gender.
If you need a sponsor or sharing partner for the workshop, we will be providing a list of available sharing partners and the times they are available for you to contact.
Please note: There is no meeting on January 15, 2015.
During our week off, we will be taking our 5th step with our sharing partners.
Please allow up to 2 hours for this step.
Please help carry the message and share this invitation with your 12 Step friends.
