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,

“In a wise and honest way Kevin Griffin has written a book that is truly helpful to Buddhist practitioners and the Twelve Step community alike. I am grateful that he’s brought together these two traditions so skillfully.”
– Jack Kornfield, author of “A Path with Heart.”
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”
