Meditation 2 of 8
Hi, I am Buddy C, and this is our second 5 minute meditation in our Tao and Recovery Series. As an alcoholic, describing God as a “Higher Power” was new for me. Taoism and the Tao Te Ching has made this concept much more palatable and not as novel an idea as I once thought. In this series, we are going to talk about a specific tool in each meditation that has helped me.
More about Buddy C.
Even after almost dying from pancreatitis, Buddy constantly relapsed for five years before learning to be powerless over alcohol and surrender. That was in 2008, and Buddy has been sober ever since. Buddy practices AA but has a very open-minded approach to recovery, including hosting The Tao of Our understanding Recovery Podcast. You can also visit BuddyC.org for information on his book, Powerless But Not Helpless, a free daily Tao recovery meditation, and other sobriety resources.
