Writing is a huge part of synthesizing yoga and recovery. I was so enamored with yoga philosophy, it hung together so perfectly with my recovery program (I am a “12 Stepper”) that I wanted to learn more about the synergies. Several years ago there were far fewer resources and books available. I took courses and workshops and still didn’t find the one unifying text or context for this investigation. I wrote my own.
“Yoga And The Twelve Step Path“, CRP 2012, is the result of that investigation. It has sold over 3000 copies as of last year. I am graced to hear from my readers from time to time and the book has met its goal – of opening the conversation about the union of yoga and recovery. Now many more books by a variety of authors are available. I have some listed on my RESOURCES page. Check them out.
“Yogic Tools For Recovery; A Guide For Working The Twelve Steps” will be out November 2017. Pre-orders are available at online stores. I am so excited that this is on its way to being launched. I hope it will be a useful process for those who are going through the steps again and again, as a regular part of their recovery.
I continue to write. “Life in Bite Sized Morsels” has been released and is available in print or e-book on Amazon. Other books are shorter and focused to the application of specific yogic inquiry on aspects of recovery. They are self published and some are available on smashwords. I write articles for online magazines and am a guest blogger on other sites. My own struggles and epiphanies are shared in my blog.
