Trusting your Intuition in Twelve Step Recovery

Trusting your Intuition in Twelve Step Recovery

Led by Mary Hayes Grieco
October 5 – October 7, 2018

Friday 5:30 PM – Sunday 12 PM

Dan Anderson Renewal Center
15251 Pleasant Valley Rd.
Center City, MN 55012

If you are “a grateful member of a Twelve Step program,” as I am, you know that oftentimes our journey in recovery feels very heavy and difficult; how we wish we could “lighten up!”

In this retreat at Hazelden’s Renewal Center, we will do just that, as we find new connections with our Higher Power and It’s will for our lives, with the magic of an activated and accurate intuition.

Your Higher Power guides you unfailingly into healthier choices, and moments of “The Miracle.” But is that inner voice your soul, or your addict self? Have you ever wondered if something or someone was A Great Idea or The Road to Hell?

We will discuss the issue of discerning between what is an addiction impulse, and what is an inspiration from your Higher Power, your “Spiritual GPS.”
