The Sponsorship Guide has been created for sponsors in all 12 step programs. It has been designed as a "working tool" for a sponsor to utilize with their newcomers. It is laid out in a simple, concise, and thorough manner. Its main object is to help a sponsor build a "working relationship" with the newcomer by taking them through the twelve steps of recovery. It's author is a well known member of the recovery community who speaks at conventions, leads men's and women's spiritual retreats, takes rehabilitation clients and sober house clients through the 12 steps and is well respected amongst his peers. Robbie felt as though a "twelve step guide" such as this was dearly needed in the recovery community. So Robbie, while on the road in Hotel Rooms and on flights to and from his speaking engagements, created this remarkable and simple book to help others. Originally he had only planned to utilize it in his retreats, until a "Nun" at one of his retreats TOLD HIM to author a book. He knew he needed to listen to her! Robbie had noticed during his recovery that many members of twelve step fellowships utilized certain tools of recovery, such as: sponsorship, meetings and fellowship. However, many fell drastically short of participating in the actual intense and introspective taking of their twelve steps with an informed sponsor - who has been through the process. That is exactly why he created this book! Robbie realized over the last three decades of his personal recovery journey, the absolute need for the person in recovery to find a program of action - if they were to live a peaceful, contented, and successful life. Group therapy, while extremely helpful to many, does not, in his experience, hold enough depth and weight to sustain a bountiful and long term recovery for the sufferer. Nothing short of continuous action on the twelve steps; with the help of a sponsor, has the ability to sustain a newcomer's attention. Once we 'get their attention' by wal

A Sponsorship Guide for 12-Step Programs offers the reader far-ranging suggestions, based on concrete experience, for the most common issues and dilemmas that arise when one agrees to become a sponsor in any 12-step program. Seventeen sponsors (with collective recovery time of over 250 years) share their experience and insights as they describe common situations sponsors face and relate the solutions they used. This is the first book of its kind--for sponsors, by sponsors. Divided into three main sections--"Sponsorship Basics," "Working the Steps with a Sponsee," and "Common issues that Come Up"--this book will be of use to anyone who has agreed to be a sponsor, or anyone who does not have access to a sponsor. A Sponsorship Guide is like having a sponsor in a book.

Merging Buddhist mindfulness practices with the Twelve Step program, this updated edition of the bestselling recovery guide One Breath at a Time will inspire and enlighten you to live a better, healthier life. Many in recovery turn to the Twelve Steps to overcome their addictions, but struggle with the spiritual program. But what they might not realize is that Buddhist teachings are intrinsically intertwined with the lessons of the Twelve Steps, and offer time-tested methods for addressing the challenges of sobriety. In what is considered the cornerstone of the most significant recovery movement of the 21st century, Kevin Griffin shares his own extraordinary journey to sobriety and how he integrated the Twelve Steps of recovery with Buddhist mindfulness practices. With a new foreword by William Alexander, the author of Ordinary Recovery, One Breath at a Time takes you on a journey through the Steps, examining critical ideas like Powerlessness, Higher Power, and Moral Inventory through the lens of the core concepts of Buddhism—the Four Noble Truths, the Eightfold Path, mindfulness, loving-kindness, and more. The result is a book that presents techniques and meditations for finding clarity and awareness in your life, just as it has for thousands of addicts and alcoholics.

A Guide to teaching the 12 Steps. The Sponsor's 12 Step Manual is an (independent) approach to delivering the program of A.A. that will help people learn faster and remember more. The manual uses a six-point method of teaching to reinforce learning and to increase comprehension and promote awareness of the Steps to its fullest extent. The process starts with understanding the language used in the Steps and progresses on to an in depth study of what is in the literature and how it applies to an individual. The six levels also cover self reflection and creativity with the final level of each Step looking at how a sponsee may carry the message to a newcomer. This is not a 'stand alone' book, for it to work you will also need to have access to A.A.s Big Book and The 12 Steps and 12 Traditions. Now available in a NEW WORKBOOK EDITION.
