Step By Step Daily Meditations For Living The 12 Steps. Since Muriel Zink began her own recovery work over thirty years ago, many people in self-help and anonymous recovery programs have shared their concern with her about finding concrete, practical ways to use the Twelve Step model, developed originally by Alcoholics Anonymous. In STEP BY STEP, Muriel devotes each month of the year to an in-depth exploration of one of the Twelve Steps, with daily entries. The steps are presented in the chronological order of the months, though any of the meditations can be used out of sequence. No matter where we are in our recovery, these wise, inspiring messages and meditations can help us “step” our way to healthier, more productive lives.
