Buddhism & the Twelve Steps: Daily Reflections: Thoughts on Dharma and Recovery

Buddhism & the Twelve Steps Daily Reflections  offers an entry for each day of the year to support your recovery. Teachings on Buddhism, the Steps, mindfulness meditation, addiction, and recovery are all covered.

Daily reflection is at the heart of both Buddhist practice and Twelve Step programs. With the Buddhist emphasis on staying in the present moment and the Twelve Step admonition to take things “one day at a time,” the importance of not getting lost in the past or future is clear. With guidance on mindfulness meditation and thoughts on working the Steps, Buddhism & the Twelve Steps Daily Reflections provides a wide range of tools for healing and spiritual growth.


One Breath at a Time Book CoverOne Breath at a Time: Buddhism and the Twelve Steps

One Breath at a Time: Buddhism and the Twelve Steps has established itself as a classic, a bellwether of the most significant recovery movement of the 21st century, combining Buddhist mindfulness practices with a 12-step recovery program.
Published in 2004, One Breath at a Time has never lost its place as the best-selling Buddhist recovery book. We are proud to present an audio edition of this transformative work.
Narrated by Kevin himself, the audio version brings this classic book to life. Also available in print and Kindle editions,

Living Kindness: Buddhist Teachings for a Troubled World

Living Kindness: Buddhist Teachings for a Troubled World is an exploration of love, compassion, joy, and equanimity, the so-called “Brahmaviharas” or Divine Abodes. Combining a close reading of several suttas from the Pali Canon with personal reflections on trying to fulfill the Buddha’s challenge to be free from ill-will, the book is at once intimate and far-reaching in its scope.

“This is an exceptional book, one that could serve equally well as a starting point for understanding the Buddhist teaching on kindness or to deepen your understanding in an already established meditation practice.”
– Sharon Salzberg, author of “Real Happiness and Real Love”
