Step 8

Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all

About Step 8, from Tommy Rosen

Tommy Rosen presents Step 8. This is the second time in the 12 steps that we make a list, in this case a list of people to whom we may make amends. Amends means not just an apology but a commitment to change the behavior. The yoga parallel is that of taking the peace and serenity from the yoga practice "off the mat" and into the world to bring peace and harmony there as well. More information is available at
