Soul Recovery Circle of Life

Meeting Information:​

The Soul Recovery Circle meets every week on Saturday at 4:00 PM in person for 90 minutes.  This circle is led by Cyndee Young, Avis Ives, and Jan Young.  


This circle is intended to supplement 12-Step programs by providing community-based support and discussion based on Science of Mind and New Thought principles and practices.   We explore the 12 Keys from the book Soul Recovery–12 Keys to Healing Dependence written by Ester Nicholson along with other new thought philosophies that can be applied to dependency.  These keys are the powerful I am statements that lay the foundation for a path to wholeness.  All types of dependence (i.e. alcohol, drugs, overeating, gambling, etc.)  are welcome on this journey to uncovering the spiritual truth of wholeness that exists within each of us.

Step/Key  12-Steps  12-Keys 
One  We admitted we were powerless over alcohol (others)—that our lives had become unmanageable.  You are the Power: Through my conscious union with the Infinite Universal Presence, I am powerful, clear and free.  Through the realization that God is within me, expressing as me, my life is in divine and perfect order. 
Two  We came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.  Restored to Wholeness: Through my conscious connection with the One Power, I reclaim my spiritual dominion and emotional balance.  I am restored to my original nature of clarity, peace, and wholeness.  I am restored. 
Three  We made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.  Complete Surrender: I turn my life over to the care of the God I understand, know, and embody as love, harmony, peace, health, prosperity, and joy. I know that which I am surrendering to, and I do so absolutely.  Knowing that this power is the very essence of my being, I say with my whole heart and mind:  Thy will be done. 
Four  We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves  An Examined Life: Through my absolute surrender and conscious connection to the One Power and Presence, I courageously, deeply, and gently search within myself for all thought patterns and behaviors that are out of alignment with love, integrity, harmony, and order. 
Five  We admitted to God and ourselves and another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.  Living Out Loud: I claim the courage and willingness to share the exact nature of my mistakes with another spiritual being.   I am heard with compassion, unconditional love, and wisdom.  In this loving vibration, clarity, peace, and balance are restored. 
Six  We were entirely ready for God to remove these defects of character.  Honoring the Inner Child: I am now ready to release all thought patterns and behaviors unlike my true nature, which is wholeness.  I free-fall into the loving presence of Spirit within and allow it to heal every known and unknown false belief.  I am transformed by the renewal of my mind. 
Seven  We humbly ask him to remove our shortcomings.  Never Give Up: In loving compassion for every aspect of my being, I humbly surrender to the love of Spirit.  I surrender all, and I am restored to the life I came here to live. 
Eight  We made a list of all the persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.  Willingness: I acknowledge the people I have offended based on false beliefs, fear, doubt, and unworthiness.  I am willing to go to any lengths to clean up my side of the street. 
Nine  We made direct amends to people wherever possible, except when doing so would injure them or others.  Cleaning up the Wreckage: Backed by the Power of the Universe, I lovingly, directly, and honestly make amends in a way that supports the highest good for all concerned. 
Ten  We continued to take a personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.  Spiritual Maintenance: I am in tune with my inner self.  With integrity, love, and self-compassion, I acknowledge my mistakes and continue to clean up my mistakes of my past and present. 
Eleven  We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.  Conscious Contact: Through daily prayer and meditation, I deepen my conscious connection to the Divine and experience the fullness of the Universal Presence as the dynamic reality of my life. 
Twelve  Having a spiritual awakening as a result of these Steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics (codependents), and to practice these principles in all of our affairs.  Loving Service: Through my awakened consciousness, I am now prepared to carry the message of truth out into the world.  I am now a clear channel to support the awakening of others to their true identity of wholeness.
