Join us for a weekend of recovery, connection and fellowship featuring international and UK guest speakers, workshops and meetings that cover all aspects of recovery from sex and love addiction and anorexia. There is also an in-house cafe and break-out spaces, providing the opportunity for connection and fellowship.
Our keynote speaker is Rita H, who is coming from Montreal to share her SLAA experience, strength and hope on ‘The Courage to Change’. As well as having been in SLAA for 19 years, she also has 25 years’ AA recovery. She has held several service posts (including as delegate for Montreal Intergroup), has been on many Conference Committees and Board of Trustees, and sponsors fellows across North America.
Our second speaker is Adrianna, “a sex and love addict who has been around a long time, one day at a time.” She will be sharing on ‘Spirituality and the Language of 12-Step Recovery’.
This year in addition to great topic meetings we will also be running a number of workshops led by experienced fellows to help you deepen your journey of recovery and ‘The Courage to Change’. The workshops are as follows:-
Anorexia Meeting followed by Workshop
Step 4 Meeting followed by Workshop
Steps 8-9 Meeting followed by Workshop
Do bring along your own pens and notebooks as we encourage you to work together in a community of fellows.
