We need to be empty in order to receive:


  1. What fills me now? Does holding that make me miserable?
  2. What prevents me from letting go? Am I willing to live with it in a different way?
  3. How do I empty my self of all that bothers me so that I can get into the flow of life? Do I experience that resistance to change is the source of my suffering? What would it look like if I changed? What would it look like if I stopped resisting?
  4. What is the one thing necessary that I should fill myself with to satisfy me while at the same time leaves me open for more?

Herb K. was given the gift of freedom from alcohol February 21, 1984. As a result of the application of the Twelve Steps as contained precisely in the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous, he experienced a profound spiritual awakening in 1988. Since then he has been very involved in carrying the message of recovery through presentations, facilitating workshops, and leading retreats.

He has authored three books to help people access the instructions and confirm the actual process contained in the Big Book for experiencing a spiritual awakening: Practicing the Here and Now: Being Intentional with Step 11 (2017), Twelve-Step Guide to Using the Alcoholics Anonymous Big Book (2004) and Twelve Steps to Spiritual Awakening: Enlightenment for Everyone (2010). His books are available on Amazon and other locations.
