Albert Einstein defined insanity as "doing the same things over and over again and expecting different results." Those of us who struggle with addiction know this pattern well. We have literally handed our lives over, and we are prisoners to those things that we cannot live without. This disconnect from reality is so powerful that we have come to see this imprisonment as our only reality. This serenity retreat will share a story of light and hope. It is a paradoxical story of surrender to those things that bind us in order that we might become free of them. We will focus on the spiritual treasure map that is the first three steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. The format will include shared experiences, discussion, quiet reflection and prayer.
