3 Principles of Mind, Consciousness, and Thought

The first Principle is Thought – our life is just a series of thoughts, one after the other, created by ourselves. Thought happens first, we make it up, it gives us a corresponding feeling, and we act on it, as if it’s real, it looks real to us, but it’s not, it’s just a thought.

The second principle is that of Consciousness. Thoughts are bubbling up all the time, the Principle of Consciousness brings awareness of thought to the senses so we have a human experience of it.

The third Principle is that of Mind – the energy behind everything. It is everything that we can’t see, the formless intelligence that provides us with ongoing wisdom.

We hope to serve you, and meet you on the path.

Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACOA)

The term “adult child” is used to describe adults who grew up in alcoholic or dysfunctional homes and who exhibit identifiable traits that reveal past abuse or neglect. The group includes adults raised in homes without the presence of alcohol or drugs. These ACA members have the trademark presence of abuse, shame, and abandonment found in alcoholic homes.

Our 30 years of experience has shown that adult children who attend our meetings, work the Twelve Steps, and find a Higher Power experience astonishing improvement in body, mind, and spirit. Ours is one of the few Twelve Step fellowships that embraces the difficult task of trauma work, which can often lead to an exciting journey to the Inner Child or True Self. Along with sponsorship, we encourage informed counseling to help the adult child accomplish the greatest level of emotional healing from an abusive upbringing.
