11th Step Prayer and Meditation Room

Prayer is Talking to our Higher Power. Meditation is Listening.

Step 11’s Prayer and Meditation Room has doubled in size this year to accommodate the growing number of visitors each year.


A reflective setting for those who may be seeking some quiet solitude, a few moments with their Higher Power, an early morning YOGA Practice*, a Guided Meditation Session or a simple pop-in visit during Open Meditation times. A schedule will be provided to you upon arrival at Soberfest.

Special Presentation: Self-Hypnosis and Mindfulness at 11 AM and 1 PM on Saturday. Mindfulness means paying gentle attention to our body, sensations, thoughts, and perceptions – slowing down and being “in the moment”.  Self-Hypnosis techniques and mindfulness are extremely helpful in recovery.

*YOGA MATS: Bring your own mat (limited few available)

Volunteers welcomed, no experience required. Contact us through links on this website or stop by when you arrive at the Conference.

Seeking to Offer: Tai Chi Session – if you or anyone you know would be willing to lead us, please contact Barb Ward 847.271.7764.

Hours Open:  Friday 3pm-Midnight, Saturday 6:15am-Midnight and Sunday 6:15am-9am. CLOSED during Guest Speakers
