I have found that including mindfulness mediation as part of a daily Step 11 prayer and meditation practice has increased my conscious contact with a Higher Power and strengthened my recovery.  Commitment to the 12 steps is a choice to live an awakened life.  Mindfulness is a useful tool to facilitate a spiritual awakening.

Mindfulness is a practice of neutrally witnessing thoughts and emotions while staying present in the moment.  It is a way of liberation from the addictive mind and freedom from the bondage of self and its obsessive reactions.  It increases detachment, compassion and tolerance for oneself and others.

If you want to learn more about how mindfulness practice can benefit your recovery, I recommend that you read Mindfulness and the 12 Steps by Therese Jacobs-Stewart published by Hazelden.
