We at Shafa have been practicing 12-steps program too, for the last more than 20 yrs now. Yesterday during a workshop in Delhi, we experienced the 12-step program through a more personal understanding. The event was at Hotel Eros, Delhi and the organizer were from The Cabin Chiang Mai, Thailand.
The highlight of the workshop was a new understanding about the 12-Step program, for example, instead of facing the “Powerlessness and Unmanageability” of the 1st -Step on an individual he may be instead asked to confess about the consequence doing his addictive behaviors.
As it was pointed out by them that we should diagnose and get an insight in the active addictive behavior of any individual.
