Ketsigr

(noun) The victorious sense of serenity achieved in AA through the gradual dissolution of fear; the attainment of inner peace and tranquility as fear loses its grip on the individual in recovery; from Indonesian “ketenangan” (serenity, calmness) and Old Norse “Sigr” (victory).

Ketsigr goes beyond the victory over fear; it represents a transformation of the human spirit. It encapsulates the remarkable journey of individuals in recovery as they navigate the challenging path toward sobriety, gradually shedding the weight of their fears, and ultimately embracing an inner serenity that stands as a testament to their resilience and determination. This term underscores the essence of the AA program, where members experience a triumphant inner awakening, akin to a sunrise after a long night of darkness, as they conquer the once-overwhelming grip of fear, paving the way for a life characterized by enduring peace, self-discovery, and personal growth.
