12-STEP INTRODUCTION TO CENTERING PRAYER

                           
   

In our recovery, those of us who practice the 12 Steps found in AA, Al-Anon, and other 12-Step programs, sometimes find ourselves searching for the experience of emotional sobriety and deeper relationship with our Higher Power that is suggested in the 11th Step.

 

Based on Father Thomas Keating’s Divine Therapy and Addiction: Centering Prayer and the Twelve Steps, this course offers insight into the human condition and the transforming journey to freedom, light and life as God intended us to live it. It provides an invaluable roadmap for the transformation from self-centeredness to the union with God for which we all long.

 

The mystical nature of centering prayer appeals ecumenically to a variety of religions and spiritual beliefs. As the 12-Step program is based on our ultimate powerlessness and dependence on a Higher Power, Centering Prayer works well within the 12-Steps as a means to sobriety, and, more importantly, fulfilment.

 

The 12-Step process is itself a spiritual Journey, not one we can make alone. Jesus spent much of his time on earth healing people both spiritually and physically. We need that “divine therapy” to maintain our sobriety and stability. When applied as an 11th Step prayer practice, Centering Prayer draws us closer to the healing we desire from the Higher Power. In this workshop, you’ll learn the basics of Centering Prayer practice, experience it in a guided setting, and be able to ask questions and share experiences with the instructor and your fellow initiates.
