Over the past several weeks I haven't been posting weekly agendas because it seems silly to post essentially the same thing week after week as we work our way through the book The Alternative 12 Steps : A Secular Recovery Guide. We have also moved away from sending out weekly reminders to our email list.
I have to admit that I've had some concern that these steps might lead to reduced involvement in the same kind of way that every week I have a moment when I wonder if anyone else will show up. I haven't been alone yet.
When I look back at this year or the 18 months since we started this group I am very proud of everyone who has had the courage and curiosity to join us. Each of you has been a blessing to me and I suspect to others. It has been powerful and healing for me to see and hear first hand the many ways we struggle and to strive to struggle well together. Participation has strengthened my ability to listen deeply, to avoid judgement and to lean towards compassion both with others and with myself.
I thank you all.
