Experiential Meditation in Recovery: Another Way of Learning How to Love
Experiential Meditation in Recovery:Another Way of Learning how to Love
November 15-17, 2019 Mt. Calvary Monastery : Santa Barbara, CA
In this Weekend retreat for people in recovery, which includes AA, NA, Al-Anon, ACA and their friends, we will teach meditation and prayer from a Mindfulness and a Contemplative Christian approach. Coming from many perspectives, we will talk about surrender, love and compassion. Together we will strengthen our foundation and refuge in our spiritual practice so we can live a healthy, connected and inspired life. Held at the beautiful Mount Calvary Monastery Guest House, set in the hills of Santa Barbara, the grounds offer a large terrace overlooking Mission Canyon and landscaped grounds including a labyrinth. The accommodation is mostly in double rooms with shared baths for a maximum of 24 guests. There is a sizable meeting room, and a smaller library and a hospitality area stocked with a refrigerator, microwave, sink, and supplies for making coffee or tea and where the Monks will provide morning coffee. More information on Mount Calvary can be found on the Residential Retreats page.
