Spirituality of the 12 Steps Retreat
Friday, July 20 - Sunday, July 22
Whatever it is that you’re dealing with – marital issues, raging emotions, lack of faith, conflict with the Church – there’s one thing you know for sure: You can pin your hopes on spirituality. One place to look for a spiritual framework is the 12 Steps. The message of 12 Step Spirituality is the same everywhere: Turn over your troubles to God and make small changes one day at a time. You don’t have to be a member of a 12-Step group to put that view to work.
Come and join us for a journey that will take you through the 12 Steps of recovery programs giving you insights on how to learn to “let go” of these unreal needs and strengthen a deeper spirituality within yourself while revealing a new way of life. The spirituality of the 12 steps transcends multiple religious and secular traditions. This is truly a spiritual approach for everyone.
12 Step Spirituality offers freedom by getting to the heart of the most basic of human desires: happiness, peace, and inner freedom.
The above retreat costs $175.00 per person for a double room (you & your roommate must sign up and put a deposit down to qualify for a double room price) and $250.00 per person for a single room. Both fees include all content of our retreat, the two overnight stays and all meals starting with Saturday’s breakfast and ending with lunch on Sunday. The Center has vending machines with snacks and beverages but you are welcomed to bring your own and store them in our guest lounge refrigerators located on the fourth floor. Towels, linens and one pillow per bed are provided and bathrobes are recommended for shower use. Please bring your own alarm clock, any extra pillows and toiletries you may need. Arrivals can begin at 5:00 p.m. on Friday evening to complete the registration process which will take place in the Spiritual Life Center’s office located on the 5th floor. Please do not arrive early as rooms and staff may not be adequately prepared at earlier times. Schedules and room assignments are prepared the day of the retreat and will be supplied during the registration process. Balances if any are due upon arrival and can be fulfilled by cash, check or major credit cards. The retreat ends after Sunday’s lunch which begins at 12:15 p.m. If you plan to arrive later than 8:30 p.m. on Friday night, please call the retreat center in advance and let us know to expect you.
Pre-registration is required as this retreat is limited in number of participants. If you choose to register through the mail please verify beforehand that space is still available by calling the retreat center at 845-424-2111. Keep in mind that the deadline for registration is one week before the retreat. A $75 deposit per person is due at the time of registration and is non-refundable or transferable should you cancel for ANY reason. We appreciate payment in full at the time of registration as it will make the registration process go faster on the day of your arrival, but we do not require it.
