Editorial Reviews

Review

"I like 12 Steps on Buddha's Path very much. 'Laura K' has done a great service through writing this book--there is a huge potential audience out there that needs and deserves it. Weaving together the teachings and practices offered to us by the Buddha with the teachings and practices of the 12-Step Program is a brilliant move, that she has rendered with utmost integrity and wisdom." (Marcia Rose, founding teacher of The Mountain Hermitage and Taos Mountain Sangha)

"The author of this book has used her own experience in decades of 12-Step work and as a Buddhist meditator as the vehicle for presenting both practice paths. As I read these parallel reflections, echoing the promise of the end of suffering back and forth between them, the promise of liberation from suffering sounded stronger and stronger, as if two familiar voices were calling out 'Yes!' and 'Amen!' to each other. I finished the book inspired. It renewed my zeal. I think it will do the same for you." (Sylvia Boorstein, author of It's Easier Than You Think)

"This book is an excellent introduction to 12-Step and Buddhist principles, and an insightful synthesis of the two traditions. Anyone seeking to understand recovery from a Buddhist perspective will find it to be a trustworthy and illuminating guide." (Kevin Griffin, author of One Breath at a Time: Buddhism and the Twelve Steps)

"A heartfelt and moving description of one person's spiritual journey through the mutually supportive practices of the 12-Step Program and the teachings of the Buddha, with very clear descriptions of each tradition." (Arinna Weisman, coauthor, The Beginner's Guide to Insight Meditation)

Many inspiring and insightful books have been written about addiction,recovery and the 12 Step program of recovery. A few stand out from the rest. I highly recommend this book to anyone in recovery who is not drawn to the Judeo-Christian approach. Phillip Z. Author of A Skeptic's Guide to the 12 Steps.

I really liked this book and related to the observations that Buddhism and 12 steps have the same goals and philosophy. As an introduction to Buddhism, it really works and helps one understand some of the basic concepts of Buddhism. Excellent book.

This book was fantastic for anyone in recovery who may have any issues with the the standard definition of "God" and how it is presented in the 12 steps. This book is beautifully written and so easy to relate to. It does a great job of inspiring recovery and peaceful buddhist living.
