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.

EQUINE THERAPY

We entrust horses to show us the way back to health. Work and observation in the horse world lends itself to extremely powerful metaphors into our own patterns, strengths, and nonverbal messages we send out.

Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) & Equine-Assisted Learning (EAL)

Equine-assisted work honors the natural behavior of horses and herds. Horses are skilled at keeping themselves safe and are adept at survival. Their natural behaviors are optimal for mental and physical health. In many respects, we as humans have lost the instinct to keep ourselves safe and healthy. We entrust horses to show us the way back to health. Work and observation in the horse world lends itself to extremely powerful metaphors into our own patterns, strengths, and nonverbal messages we send out.

Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) implements the power of equine-assisted philosophies and exercises to introduce therapy clients to themselves in a morality that has been found to be more efficient and less threatening than traditional talk therapy.

Equine-Assisted Learning (EAL) is a field of practice based on the successes of Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP). We have learned that everyone can benefit from equine-assisted work – not just therapy clients. Equine-Assisted Learning (EAL) uses equine-assisted philosophies and exercises in a variety of arenas including parenting and family dynamics, personal coaching, church groups, corporate retreats, and more.

EAP and EAL can help with emotional and behavioral issues, anger management, marriage and relationship issues, abuse and addiction, mental health issues including PTSD, and more. We also work with special needs children and kids that are just going through a tough time.

Changing Gaits Sober Living Community is built on the premise of lifelong sobriety.
