Hey, Bill and Bob. We like the steps and traditions, too. Thanks!

12 Steps

1. We admitted we were powerless over addiction - that our lives had become unmanageable.

2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of a Higher Power of our own understanding.

4. Made a searching and fearless inventory of ourselves.

5. Admitted to our Higher Power, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of the damage we caused ourselves and others.

6. Were entirely ready to have our Higher Power remove any characteristics that cause suffering.

7. Humbly asked our Higher Power to remove these obstacles.

8. Made a list of all beings we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.

9. Made direct amends to such beings wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.

10. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were out of alignment with our values, promptly admitted it.

11. Sought through spiritual practice to improve our conscious contact with a Power greater than ourselves, asking only for knowledge of this Power's will for us and the ability to carry that out.

12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these Steps, we tried to carry this message to others seeking recovery and to practice these principles in all areas of our lives.

These steps provide us with a foundation from which to prepare, process, and integrate psychedelic experiences into a program of recovery. Those who have embraced other 12-Step Programs may find it helpful to maintain their connection to those groups and fellows. We also welcome those who have no connection to other 12-Step fellowships and hope they may find this Fellowship to be a bridge to 12- Step recovery. Some people may find it difficult to share about the integration of psychedelics with others in traditional recovery groups. Each of us must determine for ourselves when, how and with whom we can talk openly about our involvement in this Fellowship without fear of judgement or stigmatization.

12 Traditions

1. Our common welfare should come first; personal recovery depends upon PIR unity.

2. For our group purpose, there is one authority: loving-kindness, as expressed through our group conscience. Our leaders are trusted servants, they do not govern.

3. The only requirement for PIR membership is an interest in psychedelics and/or plant medicines to aid our recovery process; however, PIR does not endorse the use of any substances.

4. Each group should be autonomous except in matters affecting other groups or PIR as a whole.

5. PIR's primary purpose is to pursue recovery and help others do the same.

6. PIR groups or PIR as a whole ought to refrain from endorsing, financing, or lending the PIR name to any related facility, outside enterprise, or individual, lest problems of money, property, or prestige divert us from our primary purpose.

7. PIR as a collective is entirely self-supporting, declining outside contributions.

8. PIR service work is voluntary, but we may employ special workers

9. PIR may create service boards or committees directly responsible to those they serve, however, PIR functions in the spirit of allowing all members an opportunity to volunteer.

10. Individual PIR members have a variety of opinions on outside issues; however, members remain mindful that PIR is an inclusive program and are respectful when sharing and listening about sensitive topics. PIR, as an organization, has no opinion on outside issues.

11. At a public level, we may self-disclose our involvement in PIR if we do not proclaim to represent the organization. As members of PIR, we respect and protect all members' anonymity.

12. The spiritual intention of PIR is to create diverse, safe, and sacred spaces for all who wish to recover...always striving for humility over hubris and principles before personalities.
