Treasure Valley Secular A.A.
A Secular Approach to Alcoholics Anonymous
A group of recovering alcoholics who practice a more secular, non-religious approach to the program of Alcoholics Anonymous.
A comfortable meeting environment for recovering alcoholics.
This group of A.A. attempts to maintain a tradition of free expression, and conduct a meeting where alcoholics may feel free to express any doubts or disbeliefs they may have, and to share their own personal form of spiritual experience.
Our only wish is to assure suffering alcoholics they can find sobriety in A.A. without having to accept anyone else’s beliefs or having to deny their own.
“There is room in A.A. for people of all shades of belief and non-belief.”
-”A Newcomer Asks” A.A. General Service Conference-approved literature
What “Higher Power” means to us…
Our attendees have included deists, theists, atheists, agnostics, Buddhists, Wiccans, Christians, and those still active on their quest for a higher power. We stress our common spiritual connection as humans, and remain secular. The door of A.A. is wide open. The concept of a higher power in A.A. does not require any particular system of belief.
“Our atheists and agnostics widened our gateway so that all who suffer might pass through, regardless of their belief or lack of belief.”
-“Alcoholics Anonymous Comes of Age” Pg 167, 1957
