Step 11

Checking In, Introspection, Meditation, Prayer
Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact to our higher power/higher selves

Summary and how it applies to the 12 steps.

Step 11 of the 12 steps continues the trend of talking and listening to a higher power/higher self. Terms that are commonly used are “prayer”, “meditation”, and “conscious contact”. Spiritual language is your to define, but step 11 does rely on talking (commonly referred to as prayer) and listening (commonly referred to as meditating).

When 12 step programs refer to conscious contact they are implying a conversation - or both talking and listening with intention. With the goal of recovery, one must use talking, listening, and reflection as tools.
