The Gatekeepers: Love and Fear

July 26 @ 4:00 pm - July 28 @ 1:00 pm

| $255

Weekend Retreat with Roger B.!
During this weekend retreat, we will identify the two ultimate gate keepers: Love and Fear. Fear is the gate keeper for our addiction. Fear tells us “Don’t look at the truth”, Don’t try”, and “You don’t deserve anything better”. Love is the gate keeper for recovery and for our relationship with the God of our understanding. The only solution to conquering fear is with the assistance of a Higher Power. Together we will explore ways that we can turn to our Higher Power, and move beyond the obstacles the create our fear.
