Ernie Kurtz RIP

Wow! A jewel from the internet. This interview with Ernest Kurtz on guilt and shame and AA. Worth every second of your time. Wow…. Incredible. Blown right out of my mind. It makes me sing, cry, breath, laugh, expand. Wow. Happy. On the hole in the soul. On feeling ‘not good enough’ on a world in which we live where the 7 sins are made into preferable states of being. Wow! Happy that I quit and happy that others who walked the path before me are willing to give, share their wisdom.

Thank you Alcoholics Guide to Alcoholism for bringing this on my path. 🙂

The Alcoholics Guide to Alcoholism

‘Ernest Kurtz, who made landmark contributions to the study of addiction recovery, died January 19, 2015 of pancreatic cancer. Following publication of Not-God: A History of Alcoholics Anonymous in 1979, Kurtz focused his studies on the growing varieties of recovery experience, the healing of shame and guilt, and the role of spirituality in addiction recovery.
