I will be attending the Sequoia WoR, and attended Alta 2007...if anyone who is attending has any questions, I'm happy to answer (send me a PM, unless you think your question would have broad appeal)...and if you are thinking about it...see all the testimonials above as to why you should go.
Just to cover the begged question...why am I attending another one, if the first one was so great? I use a combination of group therapy, joint therapy with my partner, and whatever else I can find (1 WoR and the Conference in NY last Oct) to help keep me moving along...recovery is a process...I figure if I can have 5 breakthroughs at Alta, then I can have at least 1 more at Sequoia...and the atmosphere at a WoR is such that you can't help but allow yourself to have at least one, if not more...my therapist says if I stay this committed to my recovery, I can "graduate" from needing my group and my therapist, and live a relatively "normal" (whatever that is?!?!) life. Due to traveling I have not been able to access my group since December (other than individual conversations with group members) and only seen my therapist twice this year...so what better way to get back into the grove than another WoR?
Peace & Joy,
I found my little boy at Alta 2007...I spoke the unspeakable shame at Sequoia 2008...I learned to flounder at Alta 2009
What breakthrough can YOU have at a Weekend of Recovery?
