The 12-Step Buddhist: The Intersection of Addiction Recovery and Buddhist Philosophy

What we're going to do on this podcast is talk about the-steps, talk about the condition of the addict whose mind, as it says in the-step literature, is the source of the problem.
The 12-Step Buddhist Podcast is a unique resource for those seeking to explore the intersection of addiction recovery and Buddhist philosophy. In the podcast's first episode, host Darren Littlejohn introduces listeners to the 12-Step Sangha, a meditation group for recovering people that he started in Portland, Oregon. Littlejohn explains that the condition of the addict, whose mind is the source of the problem, is a central focus of the 12-Step Buddhist way of life. Through a discussion of principles and their application, Littlejohn offers listeners tools for recovery and guidance on how to get started.
One of the most significant takeaways from the podcast is the importance of finding a trusted spiritual teacher. Littlejohn cautions that not all spiritual teachers are worth trusting, but that a good indication of a teacher's value is the quality of their students. While there is a lot to learn about the 12-Step Buddhist way of life, Littlejohn encourages listeners to take the first step by listening to the podcast, checking the blog, and reading his book.
Throughout the episode, Littlejohn's compassion and hope for those seeking recovery shine through. His willingness to share his own experiences and reflections makes the podcast a relatable and engaging resource. Listeners will come away from the episode feeling inspired, empowered, and informed about the possibilities of recovery through the 12-Step Buddhist way of life.
