This is not ACA. This guru mumbo jumbo. Nothing about family of origin issues and doing the hard work. This quick fix mentality has no place on an ACA website. I cannot believe after 22 years in ACA this is a prevaling mentality. How far it has sunk. Highly disappointing. I might as well have bought Anthony Robbins books back in 1990 according to this.

One of the tenets of ACA and 12 Step programs is to "take what you like and leave the rest".

Feeling the need to judge that which one doesn't accept or understand is one of the defining ACA characteristics. Hopefully, with enough hard work on family of origin and other issues it will one day subside.

There are certainly plenty of blogs, articles and sites that simply regurgitate what has already been stated about recovery ad nauseum. I appreciate the attempt to offer a unique POV even if I don't always agree with it.
