Beyond Belief Lake Worth (an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting)

We are an Alcoholics Anonymous group in Lake Worth that meets every Sunday night at 8:30pm. For those unfamiliar with the area (get directions to this AA meeting in Lake Worth), we’re a close drive from Boynton Beach and West Palm.

Beyond Belief Lake Worth thinks it’s possible to find and maintain sobriety without being forced to believe in any sort of supernatural “higher power.” Though all are welcomed, this AA meeting is designed to serve agnostics, atheists, free-thinkers, non-believers, rationalists, humanists … pretty much anyone who struggles with the concept of a supernatural higher power.

We are non-theists and non-theist friendly people. All are welcome in this open AA meeting in Lake Worth, including drug addicts and concerned persons.


What will I find at a non-religious Beyond Belief AA meeting?

You may be surprised to find that we have a normal yet intelligent, informative and uplifting discussion meeting.

Here is what people are saying:

  • “I’ve been coming to AA for 35 years and this is more like old time AA”.
  • “I was just curious. It’s not what I expected. There was no “God Bashing”.
  • “I’m a Buddhist so I will definitely be back to this meeting. I’m comfortable here”
  • “Neuroplasticity? I never heard of it before. I learned a lot tonight”
What you won’t find at a Beyond Belief Lake Worth AA meeting:

  • You won’t find the lord’s prayer nor hold hands.
  • We don’t speak “bumper sticker” here. And you won’t find any bleeding deacons.
  • You won’t be asked to identify yourself as an alcoholic.
  • We will not request you to confine your sharing to your experience with alcohol.
  • You are not obliged to do or believe anything.

Responsibility Is Our Theme

It is an historical fact that practically all groupings of men and women tend to become more dogmatic; their beliefs and practices harden and sometimes freeze. This is a natural and almost inevitable process. All people must, of course, rally to the call of their convictions, and we of AA are no exception. Moreover, all people should have the right to voice their convictions. This is good principle and good dogma. Bu

One Man’s Leap From Faith

Sure I had a lot to be thankful for — after all, I was alive. The fellowship had shown me how to alchemize lead into gold; it had rescued me from a gruesome death in some shit hole in Brooklyn; and it had seen me released after I had been summoned to the castle.

New York Times: Alcoholics Anonymous, Without the Religion

By SAMUEL G. FREEDMAN Three floors above a Manhattan street of loading docks and coffee shops, in a functional room of folding chairs and linoleum tile, a man who introduced himself as Vic began to speak. “Today is my 35th anniversary,” he said. The dozen people seated around him applauded, and several even whooped in support. By most overt measures, this gathering two weeks ago was just another meeting of Alcoholics

Barfly (1987)

In contrast to many alcoholic films that often glorify or embellish the lives of alcoholics, Barfly offers a revealing peek into the lives of the still sick and suffering. (Barfly as defined by Miriam Webster is a person who spends a lot of time drinking in bars. LMAO) This highly praised film is based on a novel by Charles Bukowski, the crowned prince of self abuse, and retains his usual autobiographical impression

Beyond Belief agnostic musings for 12 step life

The use of “Daily Reflection” books have been a part of AA culture for a long time. Many members use them as a part of there morning routine or bedtime ritual. I have used them myself and enjoyed reading passages written by real authors. These non conference approved anthologies have always provoked thought and were great for purposes of discussion. In fact I incorporated the use of one into the format of a meeting I
