Women in Recovery

Our backgrounds are unique, our stories vary, and our programs may differ, but we are all women in recovery and we come together to heal, transform, and connect. 

"The mission of Women in Recovery is to create a caring community that provides education and spiritual growth opportunities for women in 12-step recovery programs." 

Join us each month as we nurture, renew, and transform not only our programs but our lives.

 


 

Women in Recovery Response to COVID-19

As a community, we will face this situation together and support one another to stay as safe and healthy as possible during this difficult time.

Responding to the shelter in place order, Women in Recovery Speaker Series and Book Groups will be meeting virtually until further notice.

These efforts are consistent with community and global efforts to curb the transmission of the novel coronavirus and support social distancing. Women in Recovery remains committed to our mission to create a caring community that provides education and spiritual growth opportunities for women in 12-step recovery programs.

 


 

Women in Recovery Speaker Series

Our Speaker Series is held on the FOURTH WEDNESDAY of the month between January and October at the National Center for Women’s Recovery at The Retreat. From relationships to spirituality, meditation to co-dependency, sexuality to self-care, speakers cover topics of universal concern to women seeking to supplement their programs of recovery. Refreshments and fellowship begin at 6:30 p.m., followed by the program at 7 p.m.

**Due to COVID-19, our Speaker Series are meeting virtually on Zoom until further notice.**

We Are the Luckiest: The Surprising Magic of a Sober Life

by Laura McKowen

In the midst of early sobriety, when no longer able to anesthetize her pain and anxiety, McKowen realized that she was actually the lucky one. She recognized that “those of us who answer the invitation to wake up, whatever our invitation, are really the luckiest of all.” Without sugarcoating the struggles of sobriety, she relentlessly emphasizes the many blessings of an honest life, one without secrets and debilitating shame.

Living Buddha, Living Christ

by Thich Nhat Hanh

Buddha and Christ, perhaps the two most pivotal figures in history, each left behind a legacy of teachings and practices that have shaped the lives of billions of people. If they were to meet on the road today, what would each think of the other’s spiritual views and practices? Thich Nhat Hanh has been part of a decades-long dialogue between two great contemplative traditions, and brings to Christianity an appreciation of its beauty that could be conveyed only by an outsider. He explores the crossroads of compassion and holiness at which the two traditions meet, and he reawakens our understanding of both.
