Event description

Description

...Fear of people and of economic insecurity will leave us.

....That feeling of uselessness and self pity will disappear.


Do AA's Promises seem too good to be true?


Perhaps we aren't noticing how they manifest in our lives. With open hearts and minds, let's take a closer look at our experience with the 9th Step Promises.

Over two retreat sessions on Saturday, February 10 and Saturday, March 10, we will take the time to "unpack" each promise through reflection, conversation and fellowship with the intention of realizing each promise more deeply in this gifted life of recovery.


AGENDA

9:30 a.m. Light breakfast, meet and greet
10:15 a.m. - 12:00 noon: Session One: 3 Promises
12:00 - 12:30 p.m. - Lunch
12:30 - 2:00 p.m. Session Two: 2 Promises
