Transformational Retreat for Women-12 Step Women's Retreat~

Posted on September 21, 2013 at 9:30 AM

This two day~Transformational Retreat for Women is part one of a three part series of 12 step retreats. Our vision is to provide a sacred space for women in 12 step recovery programs to work the steps and move toward a spiritual awakening. 

Fall~ Part One: Steps 1 through 5 {September 21-22}

Spring~ Part Two: Steps 6 through 9 {March}

Summer~ Part Three: Steps 10 through 12 {June}

We welcomes women from all 12 step programs recovering from alcohol, drugs, gambling,  sex and love addiction, codependency, food issues, compulsive debting and underacheiving, etc. Each and every woman’s spiritual beliefs will be honored and celebrated. We will be following the basic spiritual guidelines in the AA Twelve & Twelve and the AA Big Book and we will be pulling from many other spiritual resources.

If you want to be more grounded in your recovery, develop your spiritual life and make peace with the past- a future of limitless possibilities awaits you.

This weekend, we will help you uncover the ability to engage in a spiritual process of self-discovery through completing Steps 1-5. This workshop will help you to:

Cultivate a relationship between you and your Higher Power to discover your true magnificence and live a more serene life.

Dig your hands into the rich soil of the 12 steps and discover the potent seeds of the person you were most meant to be.

Practice tools and methods that can positively alter your life as you move from shame to compassion, fear to courage, isolation to connectedness  and limitation to freedom.

Experience the power of full self-expression, speaking your truth, and releasing the past as you live more fully in the present as you unleash your passion and realize “The Promises” in your life.

After this workshop, a new reality will emerge in your life that will alter the way you feel about yourself and the world around you.
