9th Annual 12-Step Recovery Retreat: Switching to a Higher Octane of Fuel
Bouncing off Fr. Richard Rohr’s remarkable words about Step 1 of 12-step recovery, Stuart Hoke will lead our annual retreat on topics related to the power of God available through surrender.
From his book Breathing under Water, Richard Rohr makes a paradoxical observation—a theme so familiar to those who walk the 12-step walk: “Until you bottom out, and come to the limits of your own fuel supply, there is no reason for you to switch to a higher octane of fuel. For that is what is happening! Why would you? You will not learn to actively draw upon a large source until your usual resources are depleted and revealed as wanting. In fact, you will not even know there is a Larger Source until your own sources and resources fail you.” [Breathing under Water, chapter 1].
This retreat, located in the Little Portion Friary on Long Island, Mount Sinai, NY, is open to members of all 12 Step fellowships and anyone affected by them, including, but not limited to AA, Al-Anon, ACOA, CoDA, DA, NA, OA, SLAA, etc…
Additional Information: Retreat Costs includes 2 nights accommodations and meals: $225 for private rooms | $200 for shared rooms
