11th Step Retreat with John and Laura at Mt Alvernia
Open to all in recovery, as well as family and friends

We are looking forward to hosting another retreat at Mt Alvernia with John Bruna and Laura Bartels. Our first retreat was filled with insights, meaningful connections, reflection, and joy. We had planned an annual retreat, but COVID intervened and taught us some new lessons. Now we are back and grateful to once again gather together to enhance our recovery and connection to our spiritual path.

The retreat will focus on using the skills of mindfulness, prayer, and meditation to deepen our connection with our chosen spiritual path and develop more resiliency, inner peace, and joy in our lives. There will be instruction, group discussions, meditation, and private reflection time. The retreat will begin with dinner on Friday night and end around 11 am on Sunday. There are two people in a room, couples can share a room and each room has a private bathroom. Your registration fee covers meals, lodging, and the retreat.
