20th Annual Spiritual Renewal & Recovery Retreat*
November 25 – 27, 2016
at Serra Retreat Center, Malibu, California
Our 20th annual SLAA retreat will be held once again at the Serra Retreat Center, a monastery located in the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Surrounded by quiet gardens and fountains, the Center is the ideal setting for a re-commitment to personal recovery.
The retreat was developed as a time for reflection and renewal with plenty of opportunity for quiet walks and conversation. Planned activities include workshops, small group sharing, a recovery panel, keeping current meetings, and group activities. Also, the retreat is a fundraiser for FWS (Fellowship-Wide Services) and a portion of the proceeds will be sent to them.
