Episcopal House of Prayer: Meditation and the 12 Steps
Offered by Gary Barrett and Ward Bauman
Friday, March 22 — Sunday, March 24, 2019
$325 (Scholarships available)
This retreat is designed primarily for those who have or are currently working their way through a 12-step recovery program. This would include alcohol and drug addictions. Focusing primarily on steps 11 and 12, together we will unpack what it means, from a contemplative perspective, to improve our conscious contact with a higher power through “..prayer and meditation..”, and explore the “..spiritual awakening..” referred to in step 12. This retreat will include teachings, guided meditation, silence and breath and body work. We will also make time to hear the wisdom and insights of the participants and others.
Those of us in the 12-step recovery community stand on some very big shoulders. Our time together will be held in gratitude for those who have gone before us and compassion for those still in need of a way forward from addiction. All work over the retreat weekend will be held in strict confidence.
