To gain from the experience, strength, and hope (ESH) of the AA founders...ESH that is used today, in our existing fellowships
To explore the evolution the BBs spiritual foundation that was developed and used by the founders..... and by people in recovery today.
To learn the answers to questions such as what are spiritual tools; how does this apply to my addiction; how do I work these BB ideas into my recovery journey?
