This illuminating view of how women understand and process the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous explores such essential topics as spirituality, powerlessness, and the emergence of a woman's sense of feminine soul. A Woman's Way through the Twelve Steps
remains true to the underlying spiritual truths of the Twelve Step program of Alcoholics Anonymous while triumphantly overcoming the traditional male orientation of Alcoholics Anonymous. For every woman who has felt there are issues crucial to her recovery that just can't be brought up in a mixed-gender meeting, this book sheds encouraging feminine light on the wisdom of A.A.
This workbook, designed to be used in conjunction with the book, makes A Woman's Way through the Twelve Steps
that much more measured, meaningful, and clear. Unlike many "rewritten" Twelve Step interpretations for women, this guide works with the original Step language, preserving its spirit and focusing attention on its healing message. In sections devoted to each of the Twelve Steps, Covington blends narrative, self-assessment questions focused on a feminine definition of terms such as "powerlessness" and "letting go," guided imagery exercises, and physical activities.
