We are bound in the music of life where we dance and weave within that glorious melody, or what some call God. Now, God has said that we are the very image of God (Genesis 1:27), and as images of God, we have the inborn ability to have Joy and Happiness forever present in our life. The author, David L. Peters, is an octogenarian whose life has always been filled with joy, regardless of outward appearances. The wonders of the Kingdom of Heaven is everyones birthright, if you know how to let your Creator and the Universe enter your spirit. Jesus put it succinctly: The Kingdom of God lies within (Luke 17:21). The Kingdom of God, Paradise, Heaven: these lie within you, right now, waiting for you to only turn and see, and join in the dance. Paradise is right within us, but how do we unlock the door to this wonder of joy? This book lays a path open that the author has followed for almost 80 years, starting as a young boy in rural Ohio, and it operates as advertised. No matter how things look in life, how bad it seems, all one need do is look deeper within and find the joy that can fill life: life is good! The life of abundant joy and happiness is yours for the asking. Dip your toe in the living waters, and taste the Beauty of God that is awaiting.

REVIEWS FOR THE JOY OF RECOVERY: “There are many books on recovery, but every now and again a book is published that best captures what it takes to recover from addiction. Dr. McGee has done just that. I have been in the field for over four decades, and I must say I learned a lot from reading his book, and you will too.” –Allen Berger, PhD, Clinical Director, The Institute of Optimal Recovery and Emotional Sobriety “The Joy of Recovery gives a new perspective in treating an old disease. This book can turn today’s failures into tomorrow’s miracles.” –John Harsany, Jr. MD (DFSAM) Medical Director, Riverside County Substance Abuse Program “The healing power of Love runs through this book like a golden thread.” –William R. Miller, PhD, Emeritus Distinguished, Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry, The University of New Mexico “The Joy of Recovery is a wonderful addition to the available lexicon of materials that are designed to help people follow a recovery path, that not only leads to abstinence, but leads to a life filled with joy and meaning. Dr. McGee provides a very practical approach that translates his extensive experience into "tools and tips" for the reader, at every step along the path. I would not hesitate to recommend this book to those individuals suffering with addiction who are seeking an informed and helpful companion on their journey of hope.” –Kenneth Minkoff, MD “I had relapsed before I was introduced to Dr. McGee and the Touchstones of Recovery. I needed more than the fellowship that 12-step programs provide. The Joy of Recovery is the next evolutionary step in addiction recovery. This book expands on tried and true methods using 21st-century thinking and practices to make living in recovery a joyful experience.” –DN, a patient of Dr McGee's. “The Joy of Recovery is a must read for anyone dealing with the hardships of addiction, whether it’s for yourself or someone you love. The Touchstones of Recovery, along with Dr. McGee’s mental and spiritual fortitude, have given me the strength and encouragement to overcome many obstacles in my life. The Touchstones can be a guide to help change your life forever. They have showed me how to get the most out of my recovery and have changed me into the person I have always wanted to be.” –ST, a patient of Dr McGee's.

Merging Buddhist mindfulness practices with the Twelve Step program, this updated edition of the bestselling recovery guide One Breath at a Time will inspire and enlighten you to live a better, healthier life. Many in recovery turn to the Twelve Steps to overcome their addictions, but struggle with the spiritual program. But what they might not realize is that Buddhist teachings are intrinsically intertwined with the lessons of the Twelve Steps, and offer time-tested methods for addressing the challenges of sobriety. In what is considered the cornerstone of the most significant recovery movement of the 21st century, Kevin Griffin shares his own extraordinary journey to sobriety and how he integrated the Twelve Steps of recovery with Buddhist mindfulness practices. With a new foreword by William Alexander, the author of Ordinary Recovery, One Breath at a Time takes you on a journey through the Steps, examining critical ideas like Powerlessness, Higher Power, and Moral Inventory through the lens of the core concepts of Buddhism—the Four Noble Truths, the Eightfold Path, mindfulness, loving-kindness, and more. The result is a book that presents techniques and meditations for finding clarity and awareness in your life, just as it has for thousands of addicts and alcoholics.

Who Are We to Judge? We have met the Pharisees, and they are...us. That's because we are all slaves to self-righteousness and judgmentalism. It's built into human nature. We set "the standard"--the list of do's and don'ts--to which others must adhere. Then we associate this predetermined behavior with righteousness and declare, "A 'Christian' wouldn't do that." In this book, John Fischer points out that Jesus defined the truth in such a way as to leave no one righteous--not one. We cannot be made right before God by being "better" than anyone else. Instead, by recognizing and laying aside the Pharisee in all of us, we can embrace the grace, gratitude, and joy of the spirit-filled life.

With the artistry of a memoirist, Thérèse Jacobs-Stewart draws on her personal story and an impressive range of knowledge in psychology, spirituality, and the Twelve Steps to show us the way out of the morass of pain and confusion that addiction creates. Mindfulness and the 12 Steps is moving and inspiring, full of practical guidance. --KEVIN GRIFFIN, author of One Breath at a Time: Buddhism and the Twelve Steps and A Burning Desire: Dharma God and the Path of Recovery FOR THOSE OF US IN RECOVERY, Mindfulness and the 12 Steps offers a fresh approach to developing our own spiritual path through the Buddhist practice of mindfulness, or bringing one's awareness to focus on the present moment. We can revisit each of the Twelve Steps, exploring the interplay of ideas between mindfulness and Twelve Step traditions--from the idea of living "one day at a time" to the emphasis on prayer and meditation--and learn to incorporate mindfulness into our path toward lifelong sobriety. Through reflections, questions for inquiry, and stories from Buddhist teachers and others who practice mindfulness in recovery, Mindfulness and the 12 Steps will help us awaken new thinking and insights into what it means to live fully--body, mind, and spirit--in the here and now.

Addiction recovery requires a serious commitment, yet that doesn’t mean it has to be a bleak, never-ending struggle. “Recovering takes us through many difficult steps of discipline, humility, and self-realization,” says Kevin Griffin .“In doing so, many of us forget that we are capable and deserving of basic happiness.” With Recovering Joy, Kevin Griffin fills in what is often the missing piece in addiction recovery programs—how to regain our ability to live happier lives. Recovering Joy offers a deeply insightful look at how we can cultivate positive mind states within the challenging context of addiction. Through reflections, self-inquiry, and mindfulness practices, Griffin reveals how we can better act in accordance with our core values, cultivate healthy and satisfying relationships, renew our sense of playfulness, and find the unexpected joys in the journey of recovery.
