Did you know that there are a variety of spiritual principles underlying the 12 Steps, the 12 Traditions, as well as the 12 Concepts for World Service of Alcoholics Anonymous? What are these spiritual principles—or values—and how can we incorporate them into our daily lives in sobriety? Three guest panelists will then share their experiences with these spiritual principles for living a sober life in times of joy, uncertainty, change, tragedy, and more.

Roundtables will follow, for participants to share and learn from each other. It is our hope that attendees’ exploration of the principles will broaden understanding of the diverse spiritual tools our program affords.

Panelist # 1: Spiritual Principles Underlying the 12 Steps - Heather A.
Panelist # 2: Spiritual Principles Underlying the 12 Traditions - Julie G.
