The Trap of the False Self
April 26 @ 4:00 pm - April 28 @ 12:00 pm| $255
A weekend retreat with Roger B.!
During this weekend retreat, we will explore our False Self which is always concerned with the external. It’s always driven by the thoughts of “I am what I do. I am what I have. I am what you think of me.” – living in the illusion that we are separate from each other and from God. Where does that thinking come from? And what are some alternatives to this way of thinking? How do we evolve from living in an emptiness (that is never satisfied) as the result of trying to address an infinite need with a finite solution. This weekend retreat is open to all 12 Step programs.
Date: Friday, April 26th – Sunday, April 28th, 2019
When: Check-in from 4:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. on Friday, Check-out noon on Sunday
