Where Did “I” Come From?

December 27 @ 4:00 pm - December 29 @ 12:00 pm

| $255

A weekend retreat with Roger B.
During this weekend retreat, we will explore the idea of “self”. Why am I the way I am? Why am I here? What is my purpose? Together we will gain a better understanding of where the “I” came from and we’ll transition into exploring how to build a resilient life with purpose, direction, value, and meaning. God makes this possible. This retreat is open to all 12 Step fellowships.

Date: Friday, December 27th– Sunday, December 29th, 2019
When: Check-in from 4:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. on Friday, Check-out at noon on Sunday
Where: The McIver Center at The Retreat, 1351 Wayzata Boulevard East, Wayzata, MN
Fee: $255, which includes lodging, food and materials. Scholarship funds are available.

Attendees will experience:
• An opportunity to retreat from the pull of the daily distractions in our lives

Roger B. has been active in 12 Step recovery for 40 years, is a Spiritual Director, and an effective teacher. He takes to heart the necessity of daily maintenance of our spiritual condition and continues “to seek”, as directed in the 11th Step, to grow in his own relationship with God. He has a deep concern for individuals in 12 Step Recovery and has extensive experience carrying the message of recovery. He has facilitated workshops and retreats in the Midwest and Canada.
