Our Meeting Format

The Original Way Group meeting format and literature is all published below in printable .pdf format. This is for public use. Anyone who would like to start a meeting and use this literature is welcome to do so. 


OUR BASIC MONTHLY FORMAT


Week One and Two:

BIG BOOK: Big Book Step Instructions / highlights certain instructions in the Big Book for taking the Step for that month.

 

Week Three:

SNIPPETS: Everyone brings in a Big Book snippet or section to read and share on that is related to the step for that month. We then share on our snippets or those of others. This gives us exposure to a wide variety of sections of the Big Book, and AA literature for each step.

 

Week Four:

PRACTICING THESE PRINCIPLES: 

Here we ask  ‘How does this step currently apply in your life? The chairperson will draw from the last four chapters of the Big Book to kick off this discussion.”


With this format, each week builds on the previous week, giving us a chance look progressively deeper into each step.” 


Week Five: 

If there are five weeks in a month we have an open speaker meeting. The speakers are asked to speak on the steps. 

A Program of Action:

By following this schedule, in one meeting a week, a person  could not only get an in depth knowledge of where the Steps are laid out in the Big Book but actively work with other alcoholics using this knowledge. In doing this one of the most miraculous aspects of AA materializes. We get out of self through selfless action (not self centered talking) and this deepens our spiritual awakening as promised in the 12th step. 

MEETINGFORMAT 8
