The Healing Wisdom of the 12 Steps; A Universal Approach

From February through April 2021, John Bruna took over 70 participants through the 12 steps in a loving, open, and universal way, empowering them to engage deeply with each step from their own perspective. It was a transformative experience and we have received many requests to have the course repeated. John once again offered his time freely and lead a second group. Now, with John’s permission and support, we are able to continuously offer the recorded version of the course to all.

The Healing Wisdom of the 12 Steps is an in-depth exploration of the 12 Steps from a non-secular, universal perspective. The 12 Steps has helped millions of people all over the world engage in a way of living that provides freedom from their sufferings and rediscover their worthiness and value. They have helped people overcome addictions, co-dependency, trauma, and a multitude of other afflictions.

All too often, many people are unable to access the profound wisdom and healing of the 12 steps due to the Judeo-Christian language and the early twentieth-century context in which it was originally written. In this course, John Bruna will provide access to these transformative steps by integrating them with the latest scientific research, contemporary language, and a variety of spiritual and philosophical perspectives.
