There is a direct linkage among self-examination, meditation,
and prayer. Taken separately, these practices can bring much
relief and benefit. But when they are logically related and
interwoven, the result is an unshakable foundation for life.

There is a growing interest in meditation meetings in the 12 Step communities across the country. We would like to share this list of 12 Step meetings that incorporate a period for Silent Meditation in the meeting. We have found these types of meetings can help to nurture and encourage those new to meditation by providing a setting where one 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.

For information about starting a meeting or group in your area, please see our meeting guidelines here.
