The Twelve Steps—A Mindful Approach to Life
Tuesday, April 29, 2014
What brings us into the present moment more than acceptance and surrender? These values that lie at the heart of 12-Step programs are also central to spiritual practices of mindfulness. Actions like staying out of results, using the slogans, conscious contact with constructive spiritual power, and sponsorship—mainstays of a program of recovery—naturally develop a mindful approach to living. Special guest George DuWors, MSW, LICSW, BCD, shares how the 12 Steps, developed in the 1930s, cultivate mindfulness in many direct and practical ways. George is a psychosomatic therapist, author, and trainer focusing on supporting long-term sobriety and relapse prevention. Learn more about his work at www.motivationformaintenance.com.
