Awakening to Love NEW
Center City, MN
This is a retreat dedicated to the study and the practice of the principles of love and service. A great promise of the Twelve Steps is that "we have ceased fighting anything or anyone." We will study and practice the Steps and follow their lead into the wisdom literature of East and West. We will gather, in the disciplined practice of empathy and insight to share our "experience, strength and hope" as we evolve together.
You are invited to become pioneers in this exciting spiritual experiment in inner transformation, grounded in the reality of our ordinary experience of the world.
"A religious awakening which does not awaken the sleeper to love has roused him [sic] in vain."
Bill Alexander, a writer and retreat leader, has presented popular meditation retreats at the Dan Anderson Renewal Center for 20 years. He has studied deeply in many world religions, with an emphasis on Christianity, Buddhism, and Taoism.
