Here is a daily meditation book that addresses the need for humor in Twelve Step living. Each entry takes a humorous, ironic, or rueful look at such aspects of recovery as denial grandiosity, gratitude, and change. By turns irreverent and provocative, this little book can cause a lot of laughter and perhaps even aid in recovery.
(You don't have to be white to have a white mind. What is ...)
You don't have to be white to have a white mind. What is a white mind? As Anne Wilson Schaef learned during her travels throughout the world among Native Peoples, anyone raised in modern Western society or by Western culture can have a white mind. White minds are trapped in a closed system of thinking that sees life in black and white, either/or terms; they are hierarchical and mechanistic; they see nature as a force to be tamed and people as objects to be controlled with no regard for the future. This worldview is not shared by most Native Peoples, and in this provocative book, Anne Wilson Schaef shares the richness poured out to her by Native Americans, Aborigines, Africans, Maoris, and others. In the words of Native Peoples themselves, we come to understand Native ideas about our earth, spirituality, family, work, loneliness, and change. For in every area of our lives we have the capacity to transcend our white minds--we simply need to listen with open hearts and open minds to other voices, other perceptions, other cultures. Anne Wilson Schaef often heard Elders from a wide variety of Native Peoples say, "Our legends tell us that a time will come when our wisdom and way of living will be necessary to save the planet, and that time is now." Anyone ready to move from feeling separate to a profound sense of connectedness, from the personal to the global, will find the path in this mind-expanding, deeply spiritual book.

Life is a process. We are a process. The universe is a process. Everything is a process and in process. Schaef teaches us an action philosophy that will reconnect us with our deep, long-forgotten spirituality filling our souls and setting our spirits free. Drawing on inspiring real-life stories, the experiences of professionals worldwide who have participated in her Living in Process training, and her close association with native peoples from around the globe, Schaef shares her evolutionary model for maintaining our balance in the midst of lifes seismic upheavals. With her inimitable wit and charm, she guides us to a larger spirituality and a rediscovery of our personal power. For Living in Process is a moment-by-moment revealing of and reveling in, our life as mystery honoring its challenges, truths, and joys. This is mindfulness at its fullest I am inclined to hold Living in Process very near to my heart and soul until I have absorbed every morsel of truth. NAPRA ReView A penetrating vision One of Americas most sagacious and perceptive writers on the souls challenge to find a way of being in the world.
Schaef received a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from Washington University in 1956. She was given a Doctor of Philosophy degree in clinical psychology from Union Institute in 1986. Also in 1992, Anne earned her honorary doctorate in human letters from Kenyon College.
Schaef began her career as a private practice psychologist in Missouri in 1960. Eight years later she became a private practice psychotherapist in Colorado. Then in 1984, Anne left the field of psychology and psychotherapy as she was developing her "Living in Process" work. She has worked intensively with addictions - both ingestive addictions (alcohol, food, drugs) and process addictions (work, gambling, sex, relationships). Many of her books expand on these topics including "Co-dependence: Misunderstood, Mistreated", "Escape from Intimacy: Untangling the "Love" Addictions: Sex, Romance, Relationships". In 1981, she organized a training group for those, who wanted to learn more about the Living in Process approach to living.
In 2016, Anne published the books "There Will be a Thousand Years of Peace and Prosperity" and "They Will be Ushered in by the Women" and later in 2017 "Journey to Total Societal Transformation", "Tales of the Klamath River" and "Daily Reminders for Living a New Paradigm".
Anne’s office and the headquarters for the "Living in Process" work are in Boulder, Montana at the Boulder Hot Springs Inn, Spa and Retreat Center in which she is one of the primary owners and the President of the Board. Since 1989, she has been a primary part of a team that has renovated the old Boulder Hot Springs and kept this old building and its healing waters available to the public.
In addition to her writing, she writes a blog, numerous articles and appeared on major television, radio and web programs throughout the world.
