The Poison of Organisations

Long ago, when I was all of 30-32, the then fledgeling RSS Bangalore approached me to join, saying I’d be made a member of the organising committee. I said NO then. I’ll say NO now. My ‘reasons’ are below, but they’re based on AA’s Traditions!

The frustration of Step Sponsoring

A long time ago, I decided I will not be available for individual sponsoring, step 5 or 8-9 advise. I think it's time I desisted from 'engaging' with Organisers too. It's simply not worth my effort or time.

The 12 Step Workshop

The 12-Step Workshop - or SWS for short is the entry-level programme for people to work the 12-steps of AA. Coached by AAs, for AAs and of AAs, the SWS is a 3-day programme.


The Promises Workshop, or PWS for short, is for people who've maintained long-term sobriety and have completed doing at least two SWSs. They need to have also actually worked all the 12 Steps in their entirety.

Train the Trainer

WSLB believes in the AA tradition of "give it away to keep it". Hence a Train the Trainer (T3WS) Course.
