Episode 107: Esprit Ouvert

“Esprit Ouvert” translates from French to English as “Open-mindedness”, and it’s the name of a new secular AA group that meets in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec every Friday night at 8:00 pm. In this episode, Ernest B. and William B. talk about what motivated them to start the group, the challenges they faced, and how their group approaches the AA program from a totally secular perspective. The group has rewritten “How it Works”, as well as the Steps and Traditions. Those documents are available for download in pdf form here, and will also appear in their own individual post at AA Beyond Belief.
