One Breath at a Time: Buddhism and the Twelve Steps by Kevin Griffin
One Breath at a Time: Buddhism and the Twelve Steps

revalexholt, January 20, 2008

As a Buddhist student of many years and also recovering alcoholic, I have eagerly read Kevin's book many times and also started Buddhist 12-step study groups using his book. Kevin Griffin writes with complete honesty and candor about his addictions and the pain they caused but offers hope. This hope is taking the gift of the 12-step model and taking it beyond the orthodoxy of the traditional Christian based model of 12-step recovery. The style of Kevin's writing is a bit difficult to follow sometimes but this does not obscure the clear message that the Four Noble Truths and community can be our Higher power and moving beyond shame and 'character defects'. It's an excellent resource for all those in recovery. I know that Kevin is teaching widely now and has started plans for a second book. I can hardly wait to see what his continuing thoughts will be on this universal human condition of "desire gone mad' of addiction and craving behaviors.
