Breathing Under Water

Breathing Under Water

$18.99
Only people who have suffered in some way can save one another. Deep communion and deep compassion are formed much more by shared pain than by shared pleasure. This, says Richard Rohr, is one of the great discoveries of the Twelve Step program, America's most significant and authentic contribution to the history of spirituality.

In Breathing Under Water: Spirituality and the Twelve Steps, Richard Rohr describes how the Twelve Steps of the Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) program is America's most significant and authentic contribution to the history of spirituality.

In this exploration, Richard draws parallels between Christian principles and AA's Twelve Steps, connecting AA's Big Book with the Gospel. This material draws on talks he has given for over twenty years to people in recovery and those close to them, as well as to those who counsel people recovering from or living with an addiction.

Richard offers encouragement and inspiration to survive the tidal wave of compulsive behavior and addiction by learning to "breathe under water."
