RecoveryThe Sacred Art explores and employs the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous used in thousands of recovery groups throughout the world from a deeply spiritual perspective that draws upon the insights and practices of Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, Taoism, Christianity and Islam.
In this fresh approach to spiritual and personal growth, the Twelve Steps are uniquely revised to speak to everyone seeking a freer and more God-centered life. This special rendering makes them relevant to those suffering from specific addictions as well as the general addictions we wrestle with daily, such as anger, greed, and selfishness. Rabbi Rami Shapiro describes his personal experience working the Twelve Steps as adapted by Overeaters Anonymous, shares anecdotes from many people working the Steps in a variety of settings, and offers supplementary practices from different religious traditions to help the reader move more deeply into the universal spirituality of the Twelve-Step system.
Drawing on both Eastern and Western approaches to living a spiritually centered life, RecoveryThe Sacred Art is a hope-filled guidebook for all of us who want to deepen our capacity to live free from the addiction to both self and selfishness.
