Working steps 4 & 5 using the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous with spiritual direction
When beginning the work to recover our relationships to God, self and others, the 12-steps helps us gain awareness of where our relationships stand and offer us a way forward. Ignatian Spirituality offers additional meditations and tools to help us further that insight so that it is possible to cope with what is, heal from what happened and grow into the relationships that can be.
This retreat will introduce meditations and tools from the spiritual exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola to use in your journey of recovery from the addictions of others.”
This is a silent retreat. Guests are expected to maintain a sacred silence throughout the retreat, including at meals, unless otherwise noted. The retreat will occur simultaneously with another recovery retreat. Activities will be separate; meals will be shared.
