Walk a New Path – A Recovery Workshop/Retreat
Date(s) - 29/09/2023 - 01/10/2023
Stress and isolation have rendered many of us more vulnerable, and tempted to medicate that pain with addictive activity.
This workshop/retreat seeks to offer hope and help for those struggling with addictions, and those who are concerned about them. Drawing on years of ministry among the people of the Canadian First Nations, Sylvain uses the Medicine Wheel as a model. The focus will be on the reality of being fully human, the journey into addiction, the 12 Step healing journey, and the role of prayer, fellowship and self-awareness in a spirituality of wellness and recovery.
It will appeal to anyone wanting to learn about recovery from addiction as well as those already in 12 Step support groups. There will be a blend of information, quiet time for reflection and prayer, and optional sharing and fellowship.
Archbishop Emeritus Sylvain Lavoie OMI has ministered among the Indigenous peoples for over 35 years, and is author of Together We Heal, a 12 Step approach to the healing of sexual abuse, Walk A New Path on addictions awareness, Still Green and Growing on aging graciously, and As We Love Ourselves on personal growth and human development.
