Keeping the Lights On

(Check-in from 4:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. on Friday; Check-out at noon on Sunday)
 

A weekend retreat with Roger B.! Now that we’ve made some progress working the Steps, how do we keep it going? How do we keep growing? Exploration of steps 10-12 makes this possible. There is only ONE problem…our thoughts. Sometimes our thoughts tell us that since we are doing better than where we were previously, we don’t need to do anything further. What are the thoughts we currently have that separate us from the solution, recovery, and the Power?

Registration: $255, which includes lodging, food and materials. Scholarship funds are available. Complete the reverse side of flyer. Space is limited.

Gratitude for the Second Half of Life

(Check-in from 4:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. on Friday; Check-out at 1:00pm on Sunday)
 

As we journey through our lives, it can be easy to be swayed by those things that don’t go well. As our bodies and minds continue to change, we can often be justified in our resentments. In fact, sometimes this is where we find our connection with each other. What if we looked at our stories with a different perspective? What would our lives look like if they were viewed through the eyes of gratitude?

Registration: $205, includes lodging, food & materials. Scholarship funds are available. Complete the reverse side of flyer. Space is limited.

"Where Did ‘I’ Come From?”

(Check-in from 4:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. on Friday; Check-out at noon on Sunday)
 

A weekend retreat with Roger B.! During this weekend retreat, we will explore the idea of “self”. Why am I the way I am? Why am I here? What is my purpose?Together we will gain a better understanding of where the “I” came from and we’ll transition into exploring how to build a resilient life with purpose, direction, value, and meaning. God makes this possible.
