Ordinary Recovery

Softcover, 169 pp.

The key to ongoing freedom from alcoholism or any other kind of addiction is right before us, here and now, in the ordinary and perfect present moment. The problem is that addictions are often the result of our efforts to escape living in the present in the first place. Bill Alexander's unique approach uses mindfulness (a nonjudgemental awareness of our moment-to-moment experience), story, and meditation to help alcoholics and others learn to come back to the present moment and find healing there.

And, yes, I am imperfect and vulnerable, but that doesn't change the truth that I am worthy of love and belonging.
