We have included breaks indicated on the schedule. These breaks are opportunities to get to know others as well as time for self care or meals.
You are welcome to turn off your video feature or keep your audio off if you need a self care break at any time throughout the weekend.
E-Readers or Kindles are welcome, although pages differ from that of the basic text.
Format of the Retreat:
During the retreat weekend we will read and share on the 12 Steps-together. If you have worked on the Steps in this type of format before, you already know its value. If you have not done any study of the Steps, intensive or otherwise, this is a great way to do it, especially the first time. It gives you hope and faith that the program steps work. Regardless of where any one individual is in the Step study process, we are able to learn from sharing our experience, strength and hope with each other.
There will be leaders and speakers selected at random on the Friday introduction of the weekend. We trust our Higher Power in this process and know whoever is chosen to speak or lead is strengthening their own recovery and offering value to ours.
Cost to Register: $50 (before 1/30/21) / $75 (on or after 1/31/21) helps to support the Greater Delaware Valley Intergroup to continue our work on carrying the message to the Sex and Love addict who still suffers.
