We Are All Addicts


the Judeo-Christian recovery program

of 12-Steps

with Buddhist psychology

and spiritual practice

in a way that is balm for  the soul,

means we can finally

take a step back.


Opening our hearts

to acceptance

and compassion

and forgiveness,

we find we are able

to extend the hand of peace

as we nurture each other

through the maze

of insistent need ~

that of attachment.
