This is an audio recording of Father Juniper recorded at an unknown AA convention. He talks about how he struggled in AA recovery even after repeated 4th step inventories and going through the steps many times. Sober for years he found himself suicidal. He recounts how he discovered ACOA (Adult Children of Alcoholics) (ACA) and as a result of working that program finally discovered the missing piece to his recovery.

God puts things in my YouTube playlist when I am ready to hear them. I needed this today. I went to my first ACA meeting 7-28-2020. I heard this 8-3-2020. Thank you for letting me hear God tell me, "I love you simply because you are mine." I have no memory of not knowing I am a child of God. I have been taught that from day one. But today at age 47 I got to hear it from God. Through Father Juniper.

ACA was the keystone for me as well. I relate very well, and I went to a hypnotherapist to find my inner child, and it was a huge turning point for me. AA did serve a huge purpose in it all for me as well, the good old boys :-). Bless them all, and may they find an even better way. Nice talk.

It is true, the brain does compartmentalize.
The inner child is real, for me.
I love that we have a healing process.

He hits on all the points about 12 steps I thought but never said out loud .
I have seen people go crazzy at 20 years being sober .
This is the best speaker I have ever heard ...

Wow! Every once in a while we find those people who are not afraid to speak about the elephant in the room. I love this child of God!

What an excellent talk and bravo to Father Juniper to fearlessly speak the truth. I too noticed some flaws, harsh flaws being acted out by Al-Al-Anon and AA people, without shame, but of course did not want to be accused of taking someone’s inventory no matter how abusive they were. In the beginning of my recovery I felt shamed and afraid by these demonstrations that actually made me quit program many times. When I eventually discovered ACA I found a place to begin. John Bradshaw’s books and PBS talks saved me. Thanks for sharing this post and again, many thanks to Father Juniper!!

Such an incredible recording and explained so many things in one talk.
I found Casa de Belen in Oregon and it seems that Father Juniper did indeed do as he said the Lord was doing. I'm not sure he is still involved or there but what a gift he is to us aca's.

I heard this tape approx 20 rears ago. I had been in recovery since 1972 with a family service group in Portland, Oregon.. I lost all my recovery tapes when I moved from city to city. It is so nice to listen to my old friend Juniper again. Bless his precious heart. He is such a tremendous asset to the world!!
And bless all of you listeners too. ❤

Whenever I don't even know what I am looking for, my HP does and I'm grateful to have been led here today. My Littles all are really grateful to have felt a place of understanding and safety.
