Although the twelve-Steps began with Alcoholics Anonymous, today there are dozens of twelve-step programs addressing every form of addiction imaginable. One trait all of these programs share is a focus on spirituality. While no one dogma is advocated, a regular practice of prayer and meditation is encouraged.
In The Twelve Step Buddhist, Darren Littlejohn explores the relationship between each steps and modern Buddhism while providing a model for recovering addicts who want to take a Eastern approach to their twelve-step recovery.
In this interview Darren shares some insights as to how a recovering person might benefit from the teaching and practice of Buddhism in conjunction with their twelve-step work.
