Admiral Church, a long-time host of myriad life-saving recovery groups in the North Admiral neighborhood, will host a series on Zoom to discuss Fr. Richard Rohr's book "Breathing Underwater". The sessions will include discussion, time for silent contemplation, sharing, and suggested extension practices for implementing in your own life "steps to freedom".
Rohr invites us to see the 12 steps not only in application to addictive behavior, but as a faithful path for Christians out of “stuck” thinking and into liberation. He begins with the following premises:
· We are all addicted to something; something has power over our lives and decisions.
· “Stinking thinking” is the universal addiction; we have accepted certain ways of thinking to be true and built our defenses accordingly.
· All societies are addicted to themselves and create codependency; we have learned our way in, and we can unlearn.
· An alternative, holistic consciousness is the only path to true, enduring freedom.
