AA Beginners Class: Mike takes a group all the way through the steps over a period of four weeks.
Based on AA beginners classes popular in the 1940s that were conducted by different groups of AA. I was a little facinated by this bit of AA history I knew nothing about. I did a little research and have reprinted a lengthy article about the beginner classes on the website here.
There are a number of questions asked during the workshop that are impossible to hear, but the answers make most of the questions fairly clear. Recorded in 2009, this workshop is 4 hrs long and the audio file is 110 megs.
