NEW Fall Bi-Annual ACA Retreat

Benet Lake Retreat Center welcomes ACA members



A weekend of reflection, renewal and fellowship

Aug 31, Sept 1 & 2, 2018

Join us for a time of retreat to a place of recovery and explore ACA in the spirit of the traditions. We will focus on how to achieve emotional sobriety in all of Life’s Relationships. Learn how to identify and let go of what’s not working, creating space for healthy, fulfilling relationships with your spouse, partner, family, friends, co-workers, etc.

Welcome to the 4th Northern IL ACA Retreat. The format includes 5 meetings: 1 Friday evening, 3 Saturday, 1 Sunday with a focus on tools and positive takeaways. All meeting topics will be taken from the Big Red Book, presented in the form of a lead given by a preselected attendee, followed by breakout groups for discussion.

There will be time available for optional walk & talks, fellowship at the fire pit in the evening, journaling in the quiet of the gazebo overlooking the lake, or reading in your own private room.

Please join us for this special weekend at Benet Lake to grow in your personal recovery journey.

– Bob S., Retreat Facilitator

A heartfelt Thank You to Brother Pat at the Villa Desiderata for making it possible for me to
facilitate recovery retreats for the past 25 years. I am looking forward to continue working closely with Benet Lake Retreat House to facilitate the best possible programs.
