The 12 Steps—Zoom Online series
August 26, 2020 @ 9:00 am EDT
The 12 step program is considered to be a spiritual program at its heart, using spirituality in the broad sense of the word. Although spirituality is a widely used term, it does not have a widely agreed-upon definition since it can have various religious, psychological, cultural, or personal aspects. The 12 Step program leaves the discovery of the meaning and definition of spirituality up to the individual in recovery.
The twelve steps of the program are listed here in generic form. Many groups have adopted these steps in variations meant to be worked sequentially as a process of getting rid of addictive behaviors and resulting in a growth in freedom and happiness.
Together we will use the 12 steps as a spiritual path over a 4 week period, three steps each week.
