Cross Platform (XP) Meetings

XP Meetings

This group was created with a dual purpose. The first is to support our recovery in CPA with an online meeting focused on topics we share in living with chronic pain and chronic illness. The second goal of this meeting is to gather the depth and breadth of our experience, strength and hope in writing so everyone can participate in creating a daily meditation book for CPA.

The group is held on Google Groups as a private group, open only to CPA members. One topic will be posted every 2 weeks with questions and excerpts from CPA literature to help stimulate sharing.  The Chairpersons will post the topics and moderate as needed.

To attend you need to apply here. You will be asked to select a display name and your preference of email delivery. You will be able to maintain your anonymity. Be sure to make a note of your password for the email address you use to sign up as you will need it the first time you login.

You can reply on the website or from your email account, as long as it is the same account you used to register.

You will want to set the frequency you receive the new posts.

The suggested guidelines for the group are:

  • Shares on how we apply the Twelve Step principles to the topic presented, and to keep the focus on how we live in the solution on our recovery journey.

  • Anyone who posts understands their share may be published in the book. All personal details will be removed, and all essays will be anonymous.

  • There is no expectation of perfect grammar, language, writing skill. All essays will be professionally edited for the final version of the book.

Our Mission

The Cross Platform Intergroup is here to provide continuity, assistance, cohesiveness, and community for Chronic Pain Anonymous’ rapidly developing, growing, and changing cross platform meetings.

Our Statement

Chronic Pain Anonymous is a rapidly growing Fellowship of men and women who are seeking relief from the mental, emotional, and spiritual debilitation that results from living in chronic pain and chronic illness. Our members now meet in many different venues, many of which are accessed via the internet, expanding our ability to carry the message of CPA. Our vision is to assist cross platform meetings with:

  • Meeting formats and schedules

  • Guidelines for existing and new meetings

  • Technical support

  • Access to members within our community

 

Chronic Pain Anonymous Preamble

CPA is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other, so that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from the disabling effects of chronic pain and chronic illness. We believe that changing attitudes can aid recovery.

 

The only requirement for membership is a desire to recover from the emotional and spiritual debilitation of chronic pain or chronic illness. There are no dues or fees for CPA membership. We are self-supporting through our own contributions. CPA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes.

 

Our primary purpose is to live our lives to the fullest by minimizing the effects of chronic pain and chronic illness in our lives and helping others to do the same. We do this by practicing the Twelve Steps, and welcoming and giving comfort and understanding to each other.
