From Grapevine, the international journal of Alcoholics Anonymous, personal and heartfelt stories from AA members
“The greatest gift that can come to anybody is a spiritual awakening.” —Bill W., co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous
In this collection of more than 80 stirring letters, essays and stories, discover the unique journeys of the spirit that AAs have taken on their paths from alcoholism to recovery— and the practical ways they put their spiritual values into operation in their everyday lives while maintaining or attaining sobriety.
Spiritual Awakenings includes stories from the pages of Grapevine magazine contributed by AA members who’ve found comfort and strength in so many ways: by returning to the abandoned faith of their youth, discovering an entirely new Higher Power, integrating personal philosophies with the principles of the Steps and Traditions or simply by listening and observing the world around them.
Starting with the voices of Bill W. and Dr. Bob, co-founders of AA, and including stories from newcomers and old-timers, the eager and the cautious, Spiritual Awakening: Journeys of the Spirit highlights the many different aspects of getting in touch with your own version of faith.
Spiritual presence, transformation, anonymity, humility, simplicity, sacrifice—what better foundation upon which to build a new life?
