This is an amazing audiobook that has helped me and I’m sure will help others more fully come to understand how the AA program and finding a higher power of your understanding works. And love hearing Russel Brand read it. You can definitely hear how passionate he is about it.

Viewing addiction as cravings in the mind and body, Noah Levine shows how a path of meditative awareness can alleviate those desires and ease suffering. Refuge Recovery includes daily meditation practices, written investigations that explore the causes and conditions of our addictions, and advice and inspiration for finding or creating a community to help you heal and awaken. Practical yet compassionate, Levine's successful Refuge Recovery system is designed for anyone interested in a non-theistic approach to recovery.

I was in AA for about six months when I came across a Refuge Recovery meeting and discovered this book. And with it I have found true recovery. I’ve been in the program almost a year now and have found a greater sense of serenity than I have ever had before. With the combination of meditation and right living you can find sobriety and a great program of recovery, and this book shows you how.
