About Me

My photo
I have recovered from the disease of Alcoholism. I believe there is only one person really,.. everybody. And that peace of mind is everything. -So treat your neighbor as you would treat yourself, because your neighbor IS yourself. I think most of recovery is what I would call common sense, but that learning to be ordinary is a true gift very few people acquire. My ambition is to accept everything unflinchingly, with compassion, and therefore be intrinsically comfortable in my own skin, no matter what. I am comfortable being uncomfortable and am willing to go to any lengths to improve my life. I believe the Big Book was divinely inspired, and is extraordinarily powerful. Unfortunately AA's best kept secret a lot of the time. (In my opinion). I just try to do what works, no matter what it is.

Book 2007 Amaravati Retreats before they fill up!

I see they have posted the 2007 retreat schedule on the Amaravati webpage.
Its better to start off with weekend retreats to begin with. Longer ones can bring up more 'stuff' so you have to be fairly sure of your ability to contain with, and deal with the powerful feelings that arise. Moral restraint is VERY important as you may find yourself feeling very irritable and touchy for no apparent reason. This is just your anger coming up to be processed. It always evaporates at the end of the retreat.
Do as many weekend ones as you cab as they are VERY good and so easy to get to. A LOT easier than schlepping over to India I can tell you!

These things really fill up quick, so book now!
Bear in mind that there is always a waiting list, so be fair to others and if you have booked one but secretly think you will not make it, inform the retreat centre, and somebody else can go in your place. Its only fair!

The most popular ones are new year ones, so better book the 2007 dec 31st one in October 2006!
