Sanity, Serenity and Sobriety in the Season

Center City, MN

Family Roasting Marshmellows


Achieving and maintaining sanity, serenity and sobriety at any time is a challenge—but even more so at the holidays. Join host Kathy McCauley for a weekend away on retreat for time to unplug yourself and find your quiet center. We will use songs, folktales and recovery literature to reacquaint you to the depth of serenity and sanity as by-products of healthy recovery. 

Prepare yourself for the best holiday season, by anchoring yourself in real serenity and sanity which makes living sober a little easier and happier for everyone.
