Rebellion Dogs Radio Episode 3: meet John McAndrew, MDiv 

John McAndrew, MA, MDiv, is a spiritual teacher, facilitator, counselor, musician, and poet. We found him at the National Conference of Addiction Disorders in Anaheim California, September 2013 giving a talk that asked if the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous is still relevant as a treatment modality in the 21st century.

Well, as you might anticipate, it has it's strengths and weaknesses. There are core healing principles that have endured and will continue to last. What's missing? As alluded to in the Big Book, "more has been revealed." In treating addiction the more is in the treatment of trauma and grief. At the time we were talking, John has worked as the Director of Spiritual Care at the Betty Ford Centre and now he is a principle in a project new to 2014, Sensible Spirituality Associates. In the past John has worked in bereavement and Hospice care and counseling.

Join us on Rebellion Dogs Radio as we look at grief and grieving and what our guest, John McAndrew and other 21st voices have to add to the 12-Step process. Listen, reflect and join the conversation.
