Sought Through Prayer and Meditation: An 11th Step Retreat

September 27 @ 4:00 pm - September 29 @ 1:00 pm

| $255

Weekend Retreat with Sherry Gaugler-Stewart

“Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.”

Step 11 speaks of improving our conscious contact with our Higher Power, which isn’t easy to do if we don’t take time and space to intentionally focus on and strengthen that relationship. This retreat will be an opportunity to renew and deepen our commitment to this Relationship and our program by focusing on Step 11 – practicing prayer, meditation, and quiet reflection throughout the weekend.
