About UA

UA is a Twelve Step Fellowship of men and women who have come together to help themselves and one another recover from underearning.

Underearning is many things, not all of which are about money. While the most visible consequence is the inability to provide for one’s needs, including future needs, underearning is also about the inability to fully acknowledge and express our capabilities and competencies. It is about underachieving, or under-being, no matter how much money we make.

The Tools of UA include, and reinforce, the tried and true tools of recovery provided by the Twelve Steps. Members of UA also utilize additional Tools – both individually and with partners – to support taking action that will create lives that are full, prosperous, and grounded in serenity.

If you’re visiting our website for the first time, we suggest you explore the Literature page, beginning with the piece entitled, About UA. All materials are available for download and printing.
