The retreat is composed of excellent speakers, oldtimers panel, small break out meetings, circle of love, and "free time". There is an Al-Anon meeting on Saturday as one of the break out sessions. We are very mindful of the 12 steps and 12 Traditions of AA and Al-Anon. We incorporate AA/Al-Anon literature as much as possible. We highly recommend that you bring your Big Book and 12 & 12 as well as your Al-Anon literature. Our break out discussion meetings focus on steps 2,3,6,7,10,11 and 12. The retreat centers on "God as you understand Him" and our goal is to provide an environment that will allow you to enhance your conscious contact with "God as you understand Him".
Each day starts with a led meditation in the outdoor chapel at sunrise and ends with breakout meeting. We provide song books and have a sing-a-long in the main hall after the last meeting. This is where we keep an eye out for candidates for the choir recital on Sunday morning, which is strictly voluntary.
This format was developed in the 1940s and handed down from Sponsor to Sponsee from one generation to the next. A schedule will be provided in your packet when you register with a detailed list of events.
