12 Step Spirituality

About Centering Prayer Meditation

  • Centering prayer meditation is very healing and will facilitate your process to spiritual awakening (Step 12)
  • It deepens your 12 Step practice through daily immersion in prayer and meditation.
  • Centering Prayer meditation is a way to deepen your relationship with your higher power.
  • It is a very simple method rooted in ancient Christian practices.

Centering Prayer can help deepen our application of the 12 Steps generally, and the 11th Step specifically, through daily immersion in prayer and meditation. We believe that, when applied as a daily supplement to the 12 Steps, Centering Prayer opens us to the deepest dimension of spirituality.

12 Step-based Recovery Yoga with Suz

Recovery is more than just abstinence. Recovery is a lifelong process of healing, transformation, and growth. Regardless of how addiction manifested in our lives, we were trapped in a cycle of spiritual disconnection, mental obsession, and physical compulsion. We emerged from active addiction beaten, wounded, and unwell, only to discover that the problem wasn«t outside; it – and the solution – is inside ourselves.12 Step recovery programs provide a solid structure for psychological and spiritual healing, but they offer little guidance when it comes to physical healing and how to reunify the body with the mind and spirit. That is why yoga and the 12 Steps work so well together. In Recovery Yoga class, we explore how yoga offers us the awareness and the discipline that make it possible to rediscover and reconnect with all aspects of ourselves. After a brief, anonymous small-group-style check in” meeting. We breathe and move our way through a sequence of postures designed to embody the spiritual principles of 12 Step recovery. From surrender in Step One through service in Step Twelve. we “work” all 12 Steps physically in one hour. This class is open to everyone and is accessible to students at all levels of practice and stages of recovery. More information available at recoveryyogameetings.com.

The discount prescription cards are accepted at over 80% of pharmacies in the US and its territories, including Puerto Rico. Anyone can use the CAP card, regardless of age or income. Our discount prescription card can allow someone to fill a prescription when they may normally go without.


The prescription cards are accepted at over 80% of pharmacies in the US and its territories. Savings average 15% on brand name medications, and 55% on generic medications. Anyone can use the card, regardless of age or income.
