The first CD in the SpiritStep CD series, SpiritStep One Beginning Meditation: Relax and Let Go CD, reviews the 1st step in learning meditation along with the First Step of Alcoholics Anonymous states: 'Admitted we were powerless over alcohol, and that our lives had become unmanageable.' The Eleventh Step of Alcoholics Anonymous states: 'Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.' In learning meditation, SpiritStep One is to 'Admit that we are powerless over our thoughts and emotions and that they are unmanageable.' How can we overcome this? With Meditation! The SpiritStep objective is to: Develop an understanding of the 11th step from Alcoholics Anonymous, Learn to apply it, from the very 1st step, Teach easy and understandable methods of meditation as a tool for recovery and overcoming any life situation What Happened? Hi, my name is Randy and I'm an alcoholic. I have discovered the great benefits of working the steps in while I learned to grow a practice of meditation. I did this during own struggles to achieve sobriety, and, serenity within sobriety. It is my hope that this will help others to identify with my message, and allow me to reach out and help teach the beginning concepts and practice of meditation. The SpiritStep approach was developed by teaching of 12 Step meditation workshops in our local jail, hospital and recovery homes. We can teach people in recovery, and all 12 Step related groups, how to meditate using the language and concepts of recovery. It is our hope to offer this first SpiritStep lesson on CD for members of all 12 step recovery programs and organizations.
