"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)
