Contemplative Outreach of Central Florida
Presents a 12 Step Retreat
March 20 – March 22, 2020
Canterbury Retreat Center, Oviedo, FL

An Introduction to Centering Prayer as an 11th Step Practice

The 11th Step:   “Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.”

For those who live by the 12 Steps found in AA, Al-Anon, SCA, OA, DA, NA, GA, and other programs, a Centering Prayer practice can be a key practice in the process of recovery and transformation. We believe that, when applied as a daily supplement to the 12 Steps, Centering Prayer opens us to the deepest dimension of spirituality.

Presenters: Jim McElroy, Joe Mahar, and Danielle Stephens
