Winter Awakening 2023

January 20 - 22, 2023

Winter Awakening is an annual retreat where LGBTQIA+ and our allies in recovery can come together to examine and explore their recovery and spirituality in an atmosphere of mutual support. Workshops, activities, and fellowship are based on the Eleventh Step of traditional 12-Step Programs like AA or NA (although Winter Awakening is not held under the auspices of either).

We have Scholarships available to cover the cost of the retreat.  If you would like to attend and cannot afford the retreat, you can apply for a Scholarship.  They are awarded on a first come, first serve basis.  In return for your Scholarship, we request that you participate in service work at the retreat.  All applications are reviewed by the Winter Awakening Committee.  They are available through individual contributions and funding we get from Twirl to the World.

 

Scholarships will be available for 2023.

 

Spirituality

Spirituality in recovery can mean many things to many people.  Winter Awakening invites you to explore your own spirituality and figure out what works for you.  We host a workshop yearly to help you explore and share your experiences about your Higher Power.  Meditation can be a good way to connect to your inner spirit and we host guided mediations at the retreat.
