Workshop on Steps 6 and 7 with John Bruna
Recognizing Our Inherent Goodness
Step 6 and 7 Workshop with John Bruna
September 13, 2020
Join us for this online special event benefiting the new Way of Compassion Foundation Recovery Services program. John Bruna is offering this workshop, focusing on the 6th and 7th step on a free-will donation basis with all of the proceeds going to help fund the new program. The workshop is open to everyone, whether you are in a 12 step program or not. John feels strongly that everyone can benefit immensely by integrating the steps into their daily life. The retreat will focus on universal practices that support all faiths, spiritual traditions, including simply being human.
At the root of addiction, as well as many other mental and emotional challenges, is an unhealthy obsession with self that leads to a separation from others and the world. The 12 steps are a prescription to counteract this self-obsession and reconnect us to the world in realistic, healthy, and productive ways so we can leave our island of isolation and rejoin humanity with all it’s joys, sorrows, and wonder. It is here that we get to discover that we are not broken or less-than, we not the center of the universe but a valuable part of it, just like everyone else. We are worthy, capable, and have much to offer the world.
In essence, all of the steps help us eliminate an unhealthy sense of self (an ego that separates us) and develop connection, worthiness, and value that naturally gives rise to humility. A natural humility that arises because we no longer need to impress anyone or prove our value. We feel it.
Steps six and seven focus on the skills of recognizing our inherent goodness, reducing unhealthy habits and tendencies, and increasing our connection with our spiritual path to recognize our value and purpose.
