Ben Riggs shares his insights and his work on contemplative spirituality and the 12 steps. He discusses the analogous relationships between Buddhism, Christianity, and the 12 steps, and how the 12 steps can serve as a process for internal transformation. His book, Finding God In The Body, is available on Amazon. For those unfamiliar, the 12 steps were originally created by Bill Wilson and the fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous. They are now used as models for a variety of recovery groups, support groups, and spiritual circles for all kinds of psychological and spiritual transformation.
