The Power of Vow
Everyday Tools for Healing
The Power of Vow offers everyone the ability to alleviate suffering and live a full life with tranquility. Darren's direct approach and process for sustainable recovery and healing, taken from his own addiction experiences, skillfully instructs everyone, addict or not, to embrace The Power of Vow. The printed version includes journal pages and can be used as a workbook, the Kindle version has all of the same content, minus the journal feature.
Darren's books enlighten the inner spirit, educate, open the mind, and fill the heart. The spirituality gained from combining 12-Step ideas, Buddhism, yoga, and meditation will help everyone heal, no matter what his or her afflictions may be.
The Power of Vow thoroughly addresses and dissects a powerful practice much needed in Western Buddhist and 12 Step circles. It's a tool for mindfulness, for "turning it over, " and for developing humility and forgiveness. Read it, do it!
-Kevin Griffin, Author of One Breath at a Time and Burning Desire: Dharma, God and the Path of Recovery
"In Darren Littlejohn's new book, The Power of Vow, he writes, 'We're all addicts in a sense. We're all attached, if not addicted, to our possessions, careers, relationships, identities,' and from my own personal experience in this thing called life, I couldn't relate more. The Power of Vow provides readers with a concise blueprint of how to begin breaking these attachments and addictions through... you guessed it, the power of vow. I recommend this book for anyone who happens to find themselves in a human incarnation this time around."
-Chris Grosso Author of Indie Spiritualist Beyond Words/Atria Books 2014
"An inspiring book: accessible and complex at the same time. I like Darren Littlejohn's integral and practical approach."
-Martine Batchelor meditation teacher and author of Let Go: A Buddhist Guide to Breaking Free of Habits
"Power of Vow is a must-read for everyone. Darren's straightforward approach to recovery and healing makes this book easy to read and apply to ones life."

"Sadly, many well-intentioned addicts relapse. Either they didn't take their recovery seriously, or they became rigid and dogmatic about sobriety. In Darren Littlejohn's book, The Power of Vow, he uses the principles of Buddhism to guide addicts to the all- important middle path. By examining the difference between pain and suffering, promises and vows and finding a spiritual refuge from the turmoil of day to day life, Littlejohn provides invaluable insights for any person wishing to find meaning in life, satisfaction in spiritual practice and long term sobriety."

"As a therapist I have recommended Darren Littlejohn's book The 12-Step Buddhist to several clients. The Power of Vow builds on the solid foundation of his previous book, delving deeper into Buddhist tradition and relating it to 12-Step recovery. Both books are valuable resources, especially for those who want or need to look beyond the "God" language of 12-Step groups to access their deep healing wisdom."
