Beginning Step 11

Hi Everyone!

We are entering into the heart and soul of emotional sobriety and living in the solution.

Step 11:  Sought 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.

READING FOR STEP ELEVEN

AA Big Book: Chapter 6, Into  Action From: Page 85, line 28 Thru: Page 88.

Appendix II:  Spiritual Experience, page 569

12&12:  Step 11

For our group,  I thought that we could read from pp. 157-167 in the Big Book Workbook.

The Big Workbook

And, read and discuss page 569.

After that, I thought we could read and discuss the worksheets that were sent out earlier in the week:

Here is a copy of the worksheet on Step 11 created specifically for our group:

Emotional Sobriety and Food Step 11 Inventory 12-21-2014

Emotional Sobriety and Food Step 11 Inventory 12-21-2014

This Step also includes prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, as we understand Him.

Please let me know if that is an area that you would like to explore.  Program does not discuss how to meditate specifically as each person needs to find their own spiritual connection to the God of their understanding.

There are several documents posted on the blog on this topic from various spiritual traditions.

More will be revealed as we travel this journey together.

Looking forward to “seeing” each other soon!

With blessings for recovery and peace,

Shira
