How soon do you want to get well? When we decided that we wanted to live a joyous and free life, we wanted to know HOW to do that, right away. What is the secret? Our founders said it was a Spiritual Awakening as a result a of a specific course of action. Come to a retreat to discover the course of action and the power of the Spiritual Awakening. People who have experienced the retreat have said:
“The retreat connected my program with my faith.”
“I learned more here in five hours while going though the Steps than I have in ten years of hanging around AA rooms.”
“It’s like looking behind the curtain at the Wizard of OZ, I saw where the power of AA comes from.”
“Now I get it.”
