Do you want to stop drinking? Does alcoholism or addiction run in your family? Are you considering how to get sober? Are you seriously thinking about sobriety for the first time being alcohol is controlling your life as never before? Has the idea of a "Higher Power" kept you out of Alcoholics Anonymous or other 12 Step recovery programs?

If so, then check out this podcast!

In this meeting, a chapter of the Tao Te Ching is discussed every week as to how it relates to recovery. Taoist Philosophy can be a great tool for embracing the idea of a “Higher Power”. Nature offers all of the examples necessary for a concept of a source of all life, much different but yet very similar in many ways to more traditional religious thinking. Here is a link to an online version of the Tao Te Ching that we use in every meeting; https://ttc.tasuki.org/display:Year:1972,1988,1996,2004/section:1

In the Recovery Revolution Community, RRC for short, we have a number of live online recovery meetings every week on a number of different topics led by a wide mix of addicts and alcoholics in recovery.

    Chuang Tzu – Three in the Morning – Approaching Life Without Partiality!

    Chuang Tzu – Three in the Morning – Approaching Life Without Partiality!

    All opposites cause the inverse. The way to the middle is through impartiality - being open to another's ideas and considering their opinion. When we honor others in this way, we can see both sides in light of the Tao.

Mindfulness LISTENing!
The word Tao (pronounced dau) in Chinese means “way,” indicating a path of thought or life that is the essential unifying force of everything that exists in the universe. Taoism is following the way.
