Alcoholics Anonymous / Step 2: A Promise of Hope (pamphlet) / 1980
Narcotics Anonymous / The Basic Text of Narcotics Anonymous / 1981

Show Topic: The everyday goals of the TC are compassion, achievement, discipline, and accountability / responsibility achieved through community life based on a social learning model, and created in formal and informal settings. The beliefs that are essential to the TC are that a person can change, and that a group can foster this change. The individual must at some point take responsibility, but going through the motions is ok as a stopgap measure until the beliefs are integrated. We'll discuss the five core concepts of the TC and the many tools used to facilitate them.

In my new books, Building Blocks of Recovery, the Deluxe Edition and the 2nd Edition, I break down the levels of healing with you. This week we will be discussing the "I AM" level and why having yoga in your recovery practice is so important.
I have never known my recovery without yoga and the practice has helped me to learn more about integrity and honesty than I could have learned on my own. I learned how to be in community and yet make sure my needs were met. It was this visceral experience that helped me to become the woman I am today. "A simple woman who works a simple program".
I would love to hear from you. Please email your questions to me at email@example.com or give me a call at 3:30 PM PST. It will be an honor to be of service to you and answer your questions!
