Spirituality in Twelve Step Recovery: The Many Paths to Spiritual Fitness

June 25 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Twelve Step recovery programs challenge participants through the Eleventh Step to “seek through prayer and meditation to improve their conscious contact with God as they understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will and the power to carry that out.” The literature points out that recovering people have “tread innumerable paths” in this process.  This presentation will encourage participants to clarify their personal understanding of a Higher Power, examine the quality of their relationship with that Power, and explore vehicles to build their conscious contact.
