Conscious Contact Women's Retreat- It's All About Connections
Program Is Closed
Thursday, July 8 ~ Sunday, July 11, 2021
Thursday, 5:00 p.m.- Sunday, 11:30 a.m.
Sister Cathy Cahill, OSF
This Conscious Contact retreat will explore some of the connections that are vital for growth in recovery.  If we are to improve our consciousness of God's contact with us, then we need to be aware of all our connections- with ourselves, with others, and with the world around us. Note: The theme and description for this retreat, scheduled for July of 2020, was chosen in July of 2019, just after the retreat on Simple Abundance. Since Covid-19 we have become deeply aware of just how important our connections are. A timely topic, indeed! 
For women in any 12-Step Program
**Following the CDC guidelines, we are limiting attendance at this retreat.**
Fee: $350.00 per person (If you wish to make installments, please contact the Center)
