About the event

Do you feel restless, or complacent in your recovery? Are you hungry for more? Do you long to experience more joy, inspiration, and connection to the natural world around you? Perhaps, you are living a life of service and stability but still, feel hollow and disconnected. Or is your life going great and you are curious about how to deepen your spiritual connection?

Are You Ready to experience the dynamic and vast life that is yours to live, sober, clean, and awake?

Take your recovery to the next level. Living a Life of Recovery is a 5-day retreat in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, to discover ancient practices that will help enhance your recovery. Through teachings, lectures, ceremonies, and ritual practices, you’ll be guided to rediscover the strengths you have within. You’ll learn to use a medicine wheel to guide you to find balance, an essential concept to maintain and deepen your recovery. We will spend the retreat tent camping on private land bordering the Ivy River near Asheville, North Carolina.
