“Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood him . . .”  The 11th Step

April 14th, 9:30am – 2:30pm

Hailstones Hall, Room 19
3800 Victory Parkway
Cincinnati, OH 45207

For those participating in a 12 Step Program.  Everyone moves at his or her own pace in Centering Prayer. Just doing the prayer and opening our self to the presence of our Higher Power in silence will encourage you to keep going.

Growth will happen when we practice Centering Prayer in the context of the 12 Steps.

  • Enhances our ability to “Let Go and Let God”

  • Develops in us a nonjudgmental attitude of ourselves and others

  • We grow in self knowledge which at times may be painful

  • Emerging capacity to listen and serve others

  • Nurtures our ability to live in the present moment
