Before recovery, many of us were ashamed of or even hated our bodies. Perhaps, when we looked in the mirror, we heard a parent’s critical voice or taunts from grade school classmates; perhaps we became convinced no one could be attracted to us because of our weight, our body shape, our loose skin, or the effects of aging. Most of us saw a body that didn’t match what others saw, because our vision was clouded by emotional and spiritual turmoil. One of the greatest gifts of recovery is the ability to see our bodies as they really are. For some, that might mean realizing that we’re actually a normal, healthy size. For others, it might mean coming to honor bodies that bore children or survived abuse, including compulsive over or under eating. Our bodies are eager now to thrive-to take up hiking, learn to dance, or wear flattering clothes.

Please join us for our 15th annual Big Book Study via Zoom scheduled for two consecutive Saturdays; May 30, 2020 & June 6th, 2020 from 9:00 AM to 5:30 PM each day! The theme this year is: “Find Abstinence Through The Big Book”. Highlights for this year:
We will be broadcasting live over the Internet utilizing a visually rich and powerful presentation.
The live video stream is in High Definition.
Due to location, the event will not be recorded.
Reasonable cost (No one will be turned away).
Even though we won’t be together in the same physical room this year, we will still be making the Big Book come alive so we can learn to live in the Promises every day.
