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

Audios & Videos 

"Audios & Videos" is divided into four 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. 

“The Language of the Heart” presents music videos of an inspirational nature of relevance to recovery and spiritual growth. We in recovery deal mostly in words—the propositional language of thought, reason, and analysis, or the language of narration and storytelling. That language sometimes is not enough. It doesn't reach to the core of who we are. Hence our attempt in this section to speak a different language.

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