Opening Our Hearts …Transforming Our Losses
May 11-13, 2018
Ours is an age of guilt. We feel guilty about everything. At least, we are invited to feel guilty to the point where we believe we are responsible for everything and everyone at the expense of our own well-being. This guilt causes us to suffer the loss of a sense of a healthy self. In fact, we suffer many losses in our battles with alcohol and addiction. Our Retreat will uncover the dynamics of addiction and recovery inviting us to be aware of our inner wisdom. Opening our hearts is like opening a precious gift. The blessings are transformative for self and others. Our losses can become the source of our wisdom and courage.
