There will soon be a MARA Steps and Traditions Guide which will include a more detailed meeting format. Desire tokens are now available in our store


We believe these will allow the groups to have consistency around the world.  Walking into a new meeting is challenging, but having certainty that the MARA format is the same can be comforting.

If you would like to talk through the details, let us know.
