Step 2

Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity

About Step 2, from Tommy Rosen


Tommy Rosen talks about step 2 from the 12 step and from the yogic perspective. From the 12 step perspective, step 2 is about being able to accept the possibility that we need outside help to get rid of the possibly insane behavior that our addiction has brought to us. From the yogic spiritual perspective, the highest part of our self is always connected to the infinite. So through the process of recovery from our addiction dis-ease, we can connect with the Higher Power of the infinite and get rid of the insanity of our addiction.
