  1. This is EA's MAIN piece of literature, that is typically read aloud from at the beginning of each EA meeting.

    This pamphlet includes all the main facets of the EA program - the twelve "Helpful Concepts," "Just For Todays," "Slogans," "Traditions," "Steps," and "Promises."

  2. This is a suggested guideline for those responsible for guiding a remote meeting. Thanks to our EA friends in Italy for suggesting and drafting a version of this. For use if it is helpful, but not required at EA meetings.

  3. The rules and regulations of Emotions Anonymous International.

  4. New to EA? This is a helpful pamphlet to learn more about the program as a whole - what to expect at the meetings, ideas on how to participate yourself, and a list of the Twelve Steps. Also good to know is that all of our pamphlets are numbered, so when you want to place an EA order, you can find the "Item #" on back of each pamphlet in the box that includes EA contact information.

  5. This pamphlet provides additional information about the program and discusses what EA is - and is not. It's a good overview.

  6. Questions and answers useful in helping new or potential members decide if EA is for them.

  7. An easy way to post your meeting information in your community! Fill in your local meeting information by hand and post on bulletin boards at local coffee shops, grocery stores, libraries, community centers, senior centers, schools, in Little Free Libraries... anywhere you think people will see it! You may copy this flier as often as you like. Thank you for getting the word out about EA! :)

  9. Why is EA a Step meeting? What if you haven't worked the Step that the group is on that week? Why don't we discuss our problems? Why does EA discourage cross talk and feedback during the meeting? What if someone strays from the subject of the meeting? Who manages the meeting? Why don't we discuss religion? All of these questions are answered in this pamphlet.

  10. A report to the EA membership on activities, including contribution and financial information from the 2023 fiscal year (July 1, 2022 - June 30, 2023).
