The Twelve and Twelve, by contrast, offers an actual approach to meditation. It uses the 
Prayer of St. Francis and invites us to consider it line by line. In the end, it suggests, meditation 
“is essentially an individual adventure, something which each one of us works out in his own 
way.”

The Twelve and Twelve makes one other important point. It says, “There is a direct linkage 
among self-examination, meditation, and prayer.” In other words, Steps 10 and 11 are very 
closely related to one another. We have already seen that we can actually make a meditative 
practice out of Step 10 itself, using it moment by moment throughout the day to practice ongoing 
awareness – something close to what the Buddhists call vipassana meditation.

Taking all this information together, therefore, we can make the following observations. We 
will not get very far if we try to practice Step 11 meditation without an ongoing practice of Step 
10. We will find that meditation is “an individual adventure” – that, regardless of whether we 
are practicing alone or with others, we will gradually work out an approach to meditation which 
works for us. And we also learn that, as people in recovery, we can practice and should be 
practicing meditation routinely long before we arrive at Step 11.

So – having said all of this – what is meditation? Specifically, what is Step 11 meditation?
There is plenty of extra-Program material to read on this topic, and both the Big Book and 
the Twelve and Twelve suggest that we should read it. They also suggest that, if the particular 
faith we may belong to has a tradition of meditation, we should explore it.
