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 Basehart has started a new foundation to help elders and others on limited incomes care for and keep their beloved companion animals by providing support for veterinary, behavioral and traditional needs, while also minimizing the number of animals being turned over to shelters.  There is a great need for this type of help in the Santa Barbara area and if you would like to help–please contact the foundation at contact@basehart.com  Diana also discussed her early efforts to protect animals and treat them humanely.  She and her husband Richard Basehart co-founded Actors & Others for Animals. 

This was truly an inspiring show and Frank and I were honored to be in the presence of a woman who has made such a difference in the lives of so many.  Visit her website at
