A Guide to Prayer and Meditation in Recovery

For those who are newly sober or dealing with emotional or spiritual health issues, the quest for serenity can be a difficult challenge. Once someone becomes sober, or rebounds from an emotional crisis, peace of mind becomes an essential part of long-term recovery and spiritual stability.


Prayer and meditation are simple, reliable and time-tested methods that can help anyone find contentment and peace.

The Sober Journey: A Guide to Prayer and Meditation in Recovery offers easy-to-follow guidelines for people who are newly sober or just want to improve their mental, emotional and spiritual health. There are many forms of prayer and meditation in the world. In fact, there are so many choices that it can become overwhelming and confusing. The challenge is finding what works best for each of us as individuals. Prayer and meditation are not one-size-fits-all spiritual tools. Each of us has to find the path that works best, based on our own needs and personalities. The Sober Journey is written with “newcomers” in mind; anyone who is either new to sobriety or new to prayer and meditation and the search for a Higher Power and a productive, successful life.


"The author tackles the subject of sobriety with a brutal honesty that is not only refreshing but uplifting."
