Mary Anne's Mindful Meditations

Why meditate? Research, 12-Step programs, and personal experience strongly advocate breathing meditation for calming a brain under stress. A brain under stress can easily misinterpret a stress challenge as a threat. When that occurs, the communication with the executive functioning of the pre-frontal cortex is lost. The brain is left with only three defensive options: fight, flee or freeze.

Learning breathing meditation, and practicing it regularly, will equip your brain and therefore your mind, to function under stress in a helpful and productive way.

Therefore, Mary Anne has created these FREE meditation guides to assist you in your recovery. Enjoy!

The Serenity Prayer Workbook, just for you............

This Workbook is ideal for someone in recovery who wishes to go deeper in his or her relationship with a Higher Power.

  • It can be used alone as a personal study.

  • It can be used with a sponsor as an assignment for Step 11.

  • It can be used with a group.

    • Used altogether as a retreat.

    • Used alone and then sharing the answers in a group.

    • Used online with a recovering friend.

This Workbook was birthed from a workshop presented by Mary Anne in San Jose, CA. The participants asked for such a workbook, so in response, it was written.

Many a 12-Stepper recites the Serenity Prayer at meetings and privately, but they do so merely by rote (i.e., "the mechanical repetition of something so that it is remembered, often without real understanding of its meaning or significance", from MacWord Dictionary).
As powerful as the Prayer is, the recovering person typically has little opportunity to learn how to tap into that power.

The Serenity Prayer WORKBOOK is designed to remedy this dilemma.

This workbook introduces a method that can be used in all of life's challenges and is a tool to teach you how to take life on life's terms.

As any recovering person knows, the 12th Step teaches that the principles of the Steps are to be practiced in all the affairs of life. This workbook will add a tool to help you do just that.
