Is it necessary to hold certain religious beliefs to benefit from the traditional Twelve-Step program for addiction recovery? As Buddhist teacher Kevin Griffin says, “When we look at the underlying meaning of the program, we find a more universal path of spiritual growth from despair, to hope, to liberation. This same arc is reflected in the Buddha’s teachings of the Four Noble Truths.” With One Breath, Twelve Steps, this renowned author reveals how Buddhist wisdom and mindfulness practice clarifies and enhances the power of the Twelve-Step path to recovery.
Gwendolyn Collins has a sassy sweet seductive voice and she is back with some more Storytelling 11 a selection of songs of love and lust – moments4love. Her cover of Barry White’s ‘I’m Gonna Luv U’ gets you in the mood, ‘(Hey Baby) Something’ ft Brigadier is another mid tempo beater. ‘I think I like U’ ft Mycah Chevalier and Sydni Marie is a bright up tempo groove. ‘All Those Things’ is a jazzy Soul down tempo groove. ‘Beautiful’ is an acoustic piano backed ballad duet with Brian Christopher. The two stand out cuts though are ‘Moments4Love’ a mid tempo dancer and ‘Smile4me’ a lovely bright up tempo tribute to her late father. Good solid album throughout from Gwendolyn.
