ISAA Fall Retreat October 17, 2020 - Virtual Retreat
In this day and age of the “new normal,” when work, play, and now recovery meetings means keeping our distance, connections are more important than ever before. Creating and maintaining connections, whether with our individual groups, continued work with our sponsors and sponsorees, or whether it is expanding our relationship with our Higher Power, these connections help bridge the gap from isolation to meaningful relationships in our lives. With this in mind, the Indiana Intergroup of Sex Addicts Anonymous (IISAA) has chosen the motto as our program of work theme for 2020-2021. For the 2020 IISAA Fall Retreat, we will focus on how all of these connections help “piece” together a happy, joyous, and free life.
During this year's retreat, we will learn why these connections are important and how to grow them, thus ensuring our recovery. This retreat is for sex addicts and codependents of sex addicts who are members of SA, SAA, SCA, SLAA and COSA.
UPDATE - PLEASE READ
There have been some major changes to the IISAA 2020 Fall Retreat. With a heavy heart, the Fall Retreat Committee was informed on August 25th that Camp Pyoca will not be able to host any retreats for the remainder of the year. Which means, we are not able to have our IN-person retreat. However, we have implemented and launched a virtual option for this year. The virtual retreat will be one day only – Saturday, October 17th. We will offer 4 breakout sessions with two options at each time. Each session will last about an hour and half with a break for lunch between session 2 and 3. We will be using Zoom as our form of holding each session.
If interested in being part of this virtual retreat you will still need to fill out a registration form. An e-mail address will be required to attend the sessions. The cost is still $5 ($8 for online form).
Any questions please call Mike P – 765-228-6865 or Ted D – 317-372-2294.
