12 STEP CENTERING PRAYER INTRODUCTORY WORKSHOP COC
When: January 9, 2021 10:00 am CDT - Free Event
Many members of 12 Step recovery programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Al-Anon, Narcotics Anonymous, ACA, OA, SAA and others have found Centering Prayer to be transformative in their recovery work generally, and specifically as it pertains to emotional sobriety and practicing a daily 11th Step:
“Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him,
praying for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.”
Centering Prayer is an ancient meditation practice that has been used for centuries but is different from what we may think of as prayer. It is not the type of prayer we are used to, like praying for something we want. It is simply moving deep within ourselves, in silence, saying nothing, asking for nothing, just being, by letting go of our thoughts and consenting to our Higher Power’s presence and action within us. The practice of Centering Prayer has parallels with other traditional spiritual practices and is simple and easy to do.
Join us for the workshop where our presenters will share their experience, strength and hope with Centering Prayer. We will present this simple method to help deepen contact with your Higher Power. Those who already practice Centering Prayer as a part of their 12 Step recovery and desire a refresher will also find the presentation useful. Please join us.Click Here to View Calendar Event

RECOVERY WELCOMING PRAYER WORKSHOP
When: January 27, 2020 7:00 pm EST - $25
Wednesday, January 27, 2021
7:00 p.m. EST
Dave D. and Jim M.
This workshop introduces participants to the Welcoming Prayer practice, a method of consenting to the Higher Power’s presence in our physical and emotional reactions to events and situations of daily life.
Welcoming Prayer is a companion practice to Centering Prayer. Those in recovery have found both these practices to be great tools to deepen their spirituality and live in the present moment. It is similar to “pausing when we are upset” and detaching from the committee that drives our addictions and co-dependency.
This program will be offered online via the Zoom platform. Information on how to access the program will be provided to participants in their registration confirmation email.
