I recently wrote *Secrets of Confession: Healing Power Across Traditions*. The book manuscript examines traditions that practice introspection and confession to unlock the secrets of healing and renewal. The Christian tradition of reconciliation, the Jewish tradition of atonement, and the Twelve Step tradition for addiction recovery each outline steps for exposing oneself to God's miraculous transformational power. I lead workshops and retreats on Reconciliation in the Episcopal tradition. Curious about what millions of Twelve Step recovery seekers know about the healing power of confession that Episcopalians don't, I joined a Twelve Step program for recovery from hurts habits and hang-ups. After studying Jewish theology of forgiveness and atonement, I joined a Jewish conversion program at a local synagogue to gain perspective on actual practices in the Jewish tradition. My journey has led to countless interviews with people from a rich variety of traditions about their experiences of faith and healing. I would love to hear from you!
