11TH STEP MEDITATION MEETINGS (Click here for more info)

There is a growing interest in meditation meetings in the 12 Step communities across the country. We would like to provide a listing of the 12 Step Meetings that provide a setting for meditation by incorporating a period of Silence in the meetings. We have found these types of meetings can provide a nurturing and encouraging setting where those new to meditation can explore the benefits of this type of prayer/meditation in a group setting. We are compiling a lists of the 11th Step Meditation meetings and encourage you to add any meetings that you know about in your area to our list. You may submit 11th Step Meeting information to our listing or update a current listing.

12 STEP CENTERING PRAYER GROUPS (Click here for more info)

What is a 12 Step CP Group? The most important thing to be clear about is that this is not a 12-step meeting (i.e. AA, Al-anon, OA, NA, SA…). A 12 Step CP group is made up of others in 12-step recovery who practice or want to practice Centering Prayer as an 11th Step practice and it is intended to help deepen our CP practice. It usually consists of a CP period, a 20 – 30 minute period of study related to CP, and sometimes a discussion about the material and the relationship to recovery. Since this is not a 12-step meeting, we are free to discuss CP openly without fear of voicing an “opinion on an outside issue.” Contemplative Outreach (CO) has used this format of small groups for many years to form a spiritual network of support for those practicing CP. Those of us in 12-step recovery also find this to be extremely important in maintaining our 11th step practice and as a way to encourage others or introduce others to the practice. You may submit your 12 Step Centering Prayer Group to the listing.
