12-Step Quaker Weekend: Lonesome No More! Nov. 30 - Dec. 2, 2018
Before attending or joining a 12-step group, many people describe the feelings of loneliness or separation that plagued them. One of the biggest gifts 12-step groups offer individuals is an end to that isolation and a feeling of being part of something greater than themselves. During our retreat we will share the experience, strength, and ope we gained by joining our respective fellowships. Be it spirituality, miracles in action, a feeling of receiving grace, or a soothing sense of serenity, we will plan to share aspects of our personal journeys, along with how we stay connected to hope, joy, love, and each other.
Facilitator: Annie R first encountered the image and concept of Lonesome No More (from Kurt Vonnegut's book, Slapstick) when just a teenager, and knows it is part of the cosmic alignment that guided her into the AA fellowship more than 27 years ago. From the start, Annie's theme song has been "Amazing Grace." She looks forward to sharing another Quaker Retreat at Powell House with her fellow travelers as they come together in love.
