The face of addiction and alcoholism is a face that many have seen before -- it may be a celebrity, a colleague, or even a family member. And though the 12-step program by itself can often bring initial success, many addicts find themselves relapsing back into old ways and old patterns, or replacing one addiction with another. Author Darren Littlejohn has been there and back, and presents a complimentary guide for recovery to the traditional twelve-step program, out of his own struggles and successes through the study of Zen and Tibetan Buddhism. Working with the traditional 12-Step philosophy, the author first shares his own life path, and how he came to find the spiritual solace that has greatly enhanced his life in recovery. Then, he details out how his work integrating Buddhism into the traditional twelve-step programs validates both aspects of the recovery process. While being careful not to present himself as a Tibetan lama or Zen master, the author shows how each step -- such as admitting there is a problem, seeking help, engaging in a thorough self-examination, making amends for harm done, and helping other drug addicts who want to recover -- fits into the Bodhisattva path. This integration makes Buddhism accessible for addicts, and the 12 Steps understandable for Buddhists who may otherwise be at a loss to help those in need. The 12-Step Buddhist is designed to be a complimentary practice to the traditional 12-step journey, not a replacement. While traditional twelve-step programs help addicts become sober by removing the drug of choice and providing a spiritual path, they rarely delve deep into what causes people to suffer in the first place. The integration of Buddhism with the traditional process provides the wisdom and meditations that can help addicts truly find a deep, spiritual liberation from all causes and conditions of suffering -- for good.

Bestselling author and renowned Buddhist teacher Noah Levine adapts the Buddha's Four Noble Truths and Eight Fold Path into a proven and systematic approach to recovery from alcohol and drug addiction—an indispensable alternative to the 12-step program. While many desperately need the help of the 12-step recovery program, the traditional AA model's focus on an external higher power can alienate people who don't connect with its religious tenets. Refuge Recovery is a systematic method based on Buddhist principles, which integrates scientific, non-theistic, and psychological insight. Viewing addiction as cravings in the mind and body, Levine shows how a path of meditative awareness can alleviate those desires and ease suffering. Refuge Recovery includes daily meditation practices, written investigations that explore the causes and conditions of our addictions, and advice and inspiration for finding or creating a community to help you heal and awaken. Practical yet compassionate, Levine's successful Refuge Recovery system is designed for anyone interested in a non-theistic approach to recovery and requires no previous experience or knowledge of Buddhism or meditation.

Rediscover the classic guide for recovery with this tenth anniversary edition “that transcends genres by seamlessly integrating the 12-Step approach, Buddhist principles, and a compelling personal struggle with addiction and a quest for spiritual awakening” (Donald Altman, author of Living Kindness). The face of addiction and alcoholism is recognizable to many—it may be a celebrity, a colleague, or even a loved one. And though the 12-step program by itself can often bring initial success, many addicts find themselves relapsing back into old ways and old patterns, or replacing one addiction with another. Working with the traditional 12-step philosophy, Darren Littlejohn first shares his own journey, and how he came to find the spiritual solace that has greatly enhanced his life in recovery. Then, he details out how his work integrating Buddhism into the traditional 12-step programs validates both aspects of the recovery process. With accessible prose and in-depth research, he illustrates how each step—such as admitting there is a problem, seeking help, engaging in a thorough self-examination, making amends for harm done, and helping other addicts who want to recover—fits into the Bodhisattva path. This integration makes Buddhism accessible for addicts, and the 12 steps understandable for Buddhists who may otherwise be at a loss to help those in need. The 12-Step Buddhist is designed to be a complimentary practice to the traditional 12-step journey, not a replacement. While traditional programs help addicts become sober by removing the drug of choice and providing a spiritual path, they rarely delve deep into what causes people to suffer in the first place. In this “unique synthesis of the traditional 12-Step model and the liberating wisdom of Dharma” (Mandala Magazine), addicts can truly find a deep, spiritual liberation from all causes and conditions of suffering—for good.

However, a person of any religion can bring Buddhist principles into their life without giving up their religious beliefs. There is no "God" to worship if you practice Buddhism. There are not Buddhist churches on every other street corner in every town in the Bible belt of the United States. There are no potluck dinners in the fellowship hall after a sermon. Buddhism can be viewed as a religion - and under that view, Buddhism is the 4th largest religion in the world - but it is much more than that, its truth goes much deeper than a traditional religion. Buddhism is a philosophy - it is a way of living your life following a path of spiritual development that leads you to the truth of reality. There is no one definition of Buddhism because it is a practicing philosophy that you cannot truly understand until you actually experience it. However, that does not mean that this book is useless; rather, it is a guide to give you a basic understanding of the principles, beliefs, and practices of Buddhism. This will allow you to decide for yourself if Buddhism has a place in your life. Should you choose to follow the path of the Buddha, you can expect Buddhism to change your life. In this book, you will learn more about: The Origin of Buddhism The Teachings of Buddhism The Different School of Buddhism The Most Important Aspects of Buddhism Buddhism in Our Time How to Practice five Precepts of Buddhism The Essence of Life and Enlightenment Buddhism for Children Creating a Meditation Space in Your Home Typical Buddhist meditation ... AND MORE! There are varied schools of Buddhism, such as Zen and Tibetan. However, the basic principles and concepts are the same as the goal of enlightenment never changing. Buddhism truly is a way of life, rather than a traditional religion. There is a long history behind Buddhism, one that tells the story of the founder of this philosophical way of life. We call a person who follows this spiritual path one who "practices" Buddhism. That is because Buddhism requires daily practice at understanding it and following its path. You do not simply read one book and come away enlightened. When you choose to be a Buddhist practitioner, you set yourself on a lifelong path that will help you to grow and learn what it means to be human. You will find an inner peace. You will learn why Buddhist mindfulness can help you to feel happier, more content, and more satisfied with your life. Many religions include the concept of a creator god or gods. Buddhism does not. Because of this, some people, especially in the West, have trouble viewing it as a religion. But it really does not matter what you call it. You can consider it your religion or not. It really depends what matters to you in making a religion. What are you waiting for? Click buy now!

A Burning Desire is a gift for those who struggle with the Twelve Step program’s focus on the need to surrender to a Higher Power. Taking a radical departure from traditional views of God, Western or Eastern, author Kevin Griffin neither accepts Christian beliefs in a Supreme Being nor Buddhist non-theism, but rather forges a refreshing, sensible, and accessible Middle Way. Griffin shows how the Dharma, the teachings of the Buddha, can be understood as a Higher Power. Karma, mindfulness, impermanence, and the Eightfold Path itself are revealed as powerful forces that can be accessed through meditation and inquiry. Drawing from his own experiences with substance abuse, rehabilitation, and recovery, Griffin looks at the various ways that meditation and spiritual practices helped deepen his experience of sobriety. His personal story of addiction is not only raw, honest and engrossing, but guides readers to an inquiry of their own spirituality.
