Spirituality of Letting Go
Our retreat this year will focus on the Spirituality of Letting Go, which speaks to a critical aspect of our journey in sobriety.

It is indeed true that the first step in letting go is the realization and admission that we have addictions. When it comes time to let go, you may feel anger, denial, fear, shame and even sadness. Being able to understand, and manage these emotions, known as emotional maturity, enables you to create the life you desire – a life filled with happiness and fulfillment.

Working toward emotional maturity is a long process but know that God’s desire is to bring fullness and maturity into every area of our life including our emotions.
