Winter Awakening 2024

January 26 - 28, 2024

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). 


For 2023 we are returning back to Ramah Darom.  With its beautiful landscape, nice accommodations and great food it will be a weekend to remember.  




Registration is now closed!  See you at the retreat!

Email us at if you have any questions.         




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.


You can email with any questions.



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.
