After having to pause our decade-long Thanksgiving tradition in 2020, we cannot be more grateful in this moment for the gift of gathering.
This experience is an invitation for remembrance, a recommitment to the path, and an opportunity to be fully present with a group of people on the path of recovery. Come join us for a week of dedicated practice, Universal 12 Step Meetings, transformational processes, music, meditation, amazing food, and lots of laughter.
We look forward to seeing you where the jungle meets the sea at the Blue Spirit Retreat Center
