What readers are

What People Say

I have read all of Darren's books and appreciate the journey he's been through as well as the clear way he explains the practices he does to keep the beast at bay. He goes into precise detail of the steps to take to develop compassion for yourself. I have done many of these practices myself and relate deeply to what he's been through. He doesn't just write about it, he does it!

I have met Darren Littlejohn a few times in Portland, OR, where we are both connected to local Buddhist and Zen communities. He is a profound, humble, complicated man who focuses on the practical aspects of spirituality- the stuff everyone connects to, but many are scared of because they are turned off by phrases like “spirituality.”

This book in particular takes “spiritual” exercises and treats them like scientific experiments. It’s not about the abstract, it’s about confirmed measured change..

For The Yoga of Self Compassion
According to the U.S. National Institute on Drug Abuse, almost 10 percent of people aged 12 or older needed treatment for drug or alcohol problems in 2006. That astonishing number suggests a need for books such as this, written by recovering drug and alcohol addict Littlejohn, who is also a student of Buddhism. The author, who has also studied psychology and research methods, has most definitely been there. Using the Buddhist idea of attachment as a key insight into addiction, Littlejohn correlates the 12 steps of recovery programs with Buddhist ideas and practices, drawing from both Zen and Tibetan traditions. This approach can especially benefit those who may have trouble with more conventional understandings of a Judeo-Christian God as a Higher Power, since 12-step programs depend on acceptance of such a power. Some of Littlejohn's practical exercises-certain Tibetan visualizations, for example-can be abstruse, and an appended glossary could provide more help with Buddhism, issues that more rigorous editing could have addressed. But the author has guts and clarity; this book is a welcome beacon on the troubling ocean of addiction. 
Publisher's Weekly
for The 12-Step Buddhist
In a market that is dominated by “feel good”, “inspirational” books with wide puppy-dog eyes and flower gardens, this book stands out like flame-thrower at a hayride. Needless to say this book provides a more realistic portrayal of addiction and Buddhist practice.
