Practice These Principles
Living the Spiritual Disciplines and Virtues in 12-Step Recovery

Audios & Videos 

"Audios & Videos" is currently divided into six sections.

“AA History and Big Book Authors” presents talks by AA pioneers and later AAs whose personal stories appear in the various editions of the Big Book. Where applicable, these videos are indexed to those stories in “Big Book Q&A,” on this site. You may also wish to consult this site's "AA History Timeline." Links may also be provided to other sites where further biographical information may be found.

“The 12 Steps and Their Principles” presents talks by AA members on the 12 Steps and the principles therein.

“Recovery Related Audios & Videos” presents talks about AA history, the 12 Steps and their principles, and recovery from alcoholism by non-AA members or AA members not speaking as such. 

“Experience, Strength & Hope” presents personal stories of AA members not appearing in any of the editions of the Big Book that  may be particularly interesting, funny, inspiring, or instructive.

“Character, Defect, & Virtue” presents talks, lectures, papers, seminars, and other presentations of a substantive nature designed to deepen our understanding of the concept of character, the defects we examine in the inventory process, and the virtues we seek to practice and replace them with.

“The Language of the Heart” features music videos of an inspirational nature of relevance to recovery and spiritual growth.

Please note that, as elsewhere on this site, presentation of material here does not imply wholesale endorsement of content.
