Hi, Here's the latest article from the Buddhism site at BellaOnline.com.
The 12-Step Buddhist - Book Review
Drug and alcohol addiction is a huge source of suffering for many, and Buddhist teachings address the causes of suffering head-on. The 12-Step Buddhist outlines a way to integrate Buddhist teachings with traditional 12-Step recovery programs, applying Buddhist teachings to addictions of all types.
If you or someone you know suffers from addiction, or if you work with addicts, you will gain valuable insights from this book. If you have anything to add on the subject, including additional resources, please join the forum:
Also, please let me know if you have any other recently released Buddhist books that you would like me to consider reviewing. In coming weeks, I will be reviewing:
Peaceful Action, Open Heart: Lessons from the Lotus Sutra, by Thich Nhat Hanh
Yantra Yoga: The Tibetan Yoga of Movement, by Chogyal Namkhai Norbu
Ten Zen Questions, by Susan Blackmore
Feeding Your Demons: Ancient Wisdom for Resolving Inner Conflict, by Tsultrim Allione
I will spread these out, with articles on other Buddhist topics in between. I welcome your feedback on additional books or article topics. Thanks!
