After many years of addiction that resulted in depression, ﬁnancial ruin and a near-death experience, Dirk Foster managed to ﬁnally get sober. However, long-term serenity and emotional sobriety proved to be extremely difficult to achieve. Like many recovering addicts, Dirk needed to discover a way to ﬁnd lasting peace.
For those who are newly sober or dealing with emotional or spiritual health issues, the quest for serenity can be a difﬁcult challenge. Once someone becomes sober, or rebounds from an emotional crisis, peace of mind becomes an essential part of long-term recovery and spiritual stability. Prayer and meditation are simple, reliable and time-tested methods that can help anyone ﬁnd contentment, peace and joy.
The Sober Journey: A Guide to Prayer and Meditation in Recovery offers easy-to-follow guidelines for people who are newly sober or just want to improve their mental, emotional and spiritual health.
There are many forms of prayer and meditation in the world. In fact, there are so many choices that it can become overwhelming and confusing. The challenge is ﬁnding what works best for each of us as individuals. Prayer and meditation are not one-size-ﬁts-all spiritual tools. Each of us has to ﬁnd the path that works best, based on our own needs and personalities. The Sober Journey is written with “newcomers” in mind; anyone who is either new to sobriety or new to prayer and meditation and the search for a Higher Power and a productive, successful life.

- The importance of prayer and meditation in your recovery (or in the recovery of someone you love)
