12-Step Quaker Weekend on TRANSFORMATION
At the core of the Twelve Steps is a transformation from the old self to the new. A crucial part of this are Steps 6 and 7 when we become ready for, and then ask, God to remove our shortcomings. During the weekend, we will do a deep dive into 12 step literature on Steps 6 & 7, exploring defects of character, what holding onto them does for us, the pain they cause us and tools for becoming ready. We will also explore Quaker examples of transformation for examples of how faith has helped others, using the book Our Life is Love by Marcelle Martin.
Facilitator: Karen T. (and others as led). Karen T is an active member of a 12 step group who does service above the group level. She has led or co-led other weekend retreats including the 12 step weekend in 2016. If you wish to help lead, please notify the PoHo office.
