Keeping the Lights On

A weekend retreat with Roger B.

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

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?

We will explore these questions, and move beyond these obstacles, together.

Registration: $255/person includes lodging, food & materials. Scholarship funds are available. Space is limited.
