Herb was given the Gift of freedom from alcohol on February 21, 1984. As a result of being guided through the Twelve Steps as contained “precisely” in the AA Big Book he experienced a profound spiritual awakening in 1988. Since then he has been very involved in carrying the message of recovery via a Spiritual Awakening through presentations, facilitating workshops, and leading retreats. He has authored:
• “Twelve-Step Guide to Using the Alcoholics Anonymous Big Book.”(2004)
• “Twelve Steps To Spiritual Awakening; Enlightenment for Everyone ”(2010)
Many have found them helpful for accessing the instructions and confirming the actual process contained in the Big Book.
