Joe C says an Open Mind is Needed for Recovery in AA; a Belief in God is not


Joe C
After talking to the Executive Director of the Diana Basehart Foundation, (http://basehart.org), Patti interviews Joe C, author of Beyond Belief, Agnostic Musings for 12 Step Life. Joe got clean and sober in 1976 and he has been a student of the nuance and evolution of 12-Step life as it has ebbed and flowed through the last five decades. Joe will be leading the ground-breaking Beyond Belief weekend retreat in the majesty and serenity of Sedona Mago Retreat. Not a debate, nor a set up for conversion, this weekend is designed as an honest investigation of the 12 Steps and how to effectively work with others, no matter what their background or beliefs. http://www.sedonamagoretreat.org/beyond-belief/

Diana and Patti express outrage over the light sentence that Santa Barbara’s Judge Hill,

imposed upon a 19 year old man who was convicted of felony animal cruelty.  This puppy was tortured throughout his short life and and died after suffering unimaginable abuse.  A March of Mourning is being planned in Santa Barbara on July 19th, to call attention to this light sentence and to show our lawmakers that we support maximum sentences for those convicted of felony animal cruelty. Like an ‘Amber Alert,’ Diana would also like to start a ‘Davey’s Alert’ to let communities throughout the country be on the alert for animal abusers.  Please come back to this site for more details about the upcoming march and ways you can help to call attention to the rights of animals.  For the latest information, you can also visit  https://www.facebook.com/justiceforpuppydavey

On a lighter note, Patti interviews Douglas Borcoman.  He created the first online Environmental Ethics course for Coastline College and for CSU (CA State University).  Douglas is the recipient of local and national awards for classroom and teaching excellence.  He’s also an avid hiker, poet, philosopher and astronomer.  He recently led a stargazing event at Sedona Mago Retreat and the enthusiastic response of participants was phenomenal!   To learn more about Douglas, visit https://philosophicalquest.coursesites.com/
