These workshops, handouts, and blog posts are just the experience, strength, and hope we’ve gained so far. They are not “official” COSA literature. If you would like to read some COSA literature about the steps, traditions, concepts, and other tools of our program, or to listen to workshop presentations and speaker shares from COSA conventions, we strongly suggest checking out <a href=http://cosa-store.myshopify.com>the COSA store</a> and <a href=http://cosa-recovery.org>the COSA website</a>, which has plenty of free literature and newsletters available for download.
Feel free to share these recordings, handouts, and blog posts with anyone you like. Yes, you are welcome to use them to start a meeting, or to bring them to your current meeting and ask for a group conscience (a vote) on using them during or outside of the meeting for your own step workshop. You can even <a href=mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>contact us</a> if you want help finding sponsors</a>.
If you share these materials with others, please let them know that these are not Official COSA Recordings/handouts/blog posts. We do not want to confuse anybody!
(What makes something “official” or, as we call it, “conference-approved” COSA literature? CAL (conference-approved literature) is anything that the membership has voted to offer as “COSA Literature”. If something is not “conference-approved”, that simply means that COSA has not voted to offer it as our literature. It doesn’t mean COSA opposes it. As it says in our 6th tradition, COSA is drama-free! Okay, it might put it in slightly different terms, but it’s the same basic idea.)
