We have carefully and mindfully rewritten Bill and Dr. Bob’s “How it Works” and the 12 Steps in language that (hopefully) preserves the integrity of the original intent while adjusting the language to a Buddhist perspective. We are also writing Meditations for each week, and will...a year from now...have 365 of them.
Our group consists of 12 members, 6-8 who come regularly, and we have had several guests from other states.
