9781594732591: Recovery?The Sacred Art: The Twelve Steps as Spiritual Practice (The Art of Spiritual Living)

Deepen Your Capacity to Live Free from Addiction?and from Self and Selfishness

"Twelve Step recovery is much more than a way to escape the clutches of addictive behaviors. Twelve Step recovery is about freeing yourself from playing God, and since almost everyone is addicted to this game, Twelve Step recovery is something from which everyone can benefit."
?from the Introduction

In this hope-filled approach to spiritual and personal growth, the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous are uniquely interpreted to speak to everyone seeking a freer and more God-centered life. This special rendering makes them relevant to those suffering from specific addictions?alcohol, drugs, gambling, food, sex, shopping?as well as the general addictions we wrestle with daily, such as anger, greed, and selfishness.

Rami Shapiro describes his personal experience working the Twelve Steps as adapted by Overeaters Anonymous and shares anecdotes from many people working the Steps in a variety of settings. Drawing on the insights and practices of Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Taoism, Hinduism, and Islam, he offers supplementary practices from different religious traditions to help you move more deeply into the universal spirituality of the Twelve Step system.

From the Inside Flap:

Life is inherently unmanageable. Seek to control it and you are captive to exhaustion, depression, and addiction. Learn to navigate it by living with justice, compassion and humility, and you are free.
Spiritual leader and Twelve Step practitioner Rami Shapiro explores the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous as a spiritual practice to take you to a different level of mind, a mind no longer seeking control of life--relationships, events, and actions. He examines the foundational themes of each step--surrender, acceptance, confession, forgiveness, restoration--as they relate to specific addictions as well as general addictions such as greed, anger, and selfishness. He offers easy-to-follow exercises drawn from Eastern and Western religious traditions to help you deepen your understanding of each step as you learn to embrace powerlessness through:
Searching the Ego
Confessing Our Wrongs
Asking for Freedom
Naming the Harmed
Making Amends
Carrying the Message
...and more
