The author of this book is also the co-author of a book with Mark Houston entitled A Twelve-Step Journey to SELF-Transformation. [Mark H. born 10-14-46, died February 19, 2010; sober 10-19-82 to 2-19-2010. Together, at the time of the demise of Mark, the two had taken over 20,000 people through the Twelve Steps.]

In addition to the book with Mark, Floyd Henderson has also authored this book on recovery as well as THE TWELVE STEPS AND ADVAITA / NON-DUALITY: A 21-Day Plan For A Psychic Change.

A GUIDE FOR WORKING THE TWELVE STEPS (In the Manner Used by the Founders) is first a guide that modern day alcoholics and sponsors can use for working the steps promptly, as did the earliest sponsors; it can be used by those first beginning to sponsor but who have no experience with taking someone through the steps;

it can offer insights for those dealing with emotional and mental needs and can be used with those a traditional view of God as well as those having trouble with the God part.

If you have worked the steps according to the traditional methods and found that which you have been seeking, then this guide will not be for you, for this guide will offer a totally new experience with the steps and also heeding Bill W. point that alcoholics are physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually intoxicated and that they must find all four levels of sobriety if they are to live happy, healthy, productive lives.

This guide incorporates what was learned by interviewing people who worked the steps with the founders and shared with us the way that some founders guided them through the steps; it is also based on information received from people who worked with Dr. Bob and Clarence S.

That being said, we are not trying to tell anyone how to do anything. We are sharing our experience with something that has helped some who needed more help than they have found so far.
This guide is one of two that the author is aware of that guides proteges through the steps in four sessions, but the other uses the Oxford Group method that is more of a religious approach where this guide offers techniques that were used by some of the early founders and sponsors.

The Big Book reports that the founders guided proteges through the steps in what they said was three or four hours - and that is a quote from the Big Book. You may first want to use the guide yourself; then, in your twelfth-step work with others, you can use this guide one-on-one as you go through The Work.

The guide is divided into four parts which take an hour or so each, and while we had doubts, Mark and I tried it and it worked! As Mark said, This process need not be long and arduous.

If you are interested in a different experience with the steps, this guide might be for you. Best regards on your journey to being totally happy and joyous and free.
