In this meeting, a chapter of the Tao Te Ching is discussed every week as to how it relates to recovery. Taoist Philosophy can be a great tool for embracing the idea of a “Higher Power”. Nature offers all of the examples necessary for a concept of a source of all life, much different from traditional religious thinking.
