IISAA Fall Retreat – October 18, 19, 20, 2019

G  R  A  C  E

Gratefully Recovering Addicts Celebrate Experience, strength and hope.

At the base of each SAA token is the motto of our organization, From Shame to Grace. Intergroup has chosen the motto as our program of work theme for 2019-2020. For the 2019 IISAA Fall Retreat, we will focus on the theme of G.R.A.C.E.

Click here to view the brochure for more information!

During this, our 25th annual retreat, we will use the word GRACE as an acronym for Gratefully Recovering Addicts Celebrate Experience, strength and hope. It is appropriate that we celebrate both our recovery journey “from Shame to Grace” and the silver anniversary of our fall retreat.

This retreat is for sex addicts and codependents of sex addicts who are members of SA, SAA, SCA, SLAA and COSA.

Tired of cold weather, snow, icy roads and the like? Then turn your attention to the coming of spring and the 24th annual IISAA Spring Workshop. The 2019 workshop will be held on Saturday, April 13. The event will return to North United Methodist Church, at 38th and Meridian streets in Indianapolis.

The sessions will continue our program-of-work theme, Principles of Recovery. This theme lends itself to a broad range of recovery topics. SAA’s 12 Steps and 12 Traditions both encourage recovering sex addicts to adopt the principles which underlie our program of recovery. But, what exactly are these principles to which Step 12 and Tradition 12 refer?

Numerous people, including Bill W., in Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, have attempted to pinpoint the underlying principles that permeate our program of recovery. Each principle has a philosophical basis and corresponding actions that convey the principle (see the series on the Principles on pp. 4 and 5 of this issue of The Winter Check-IN and in the previous two issues).

Jeff W., the workshop chair, is looking for presenters who can share their experience, strength and hope as it relates to our program’s call to practice these principles in our lives (Step 12) and to place principles before personalities (Tradition 12). If you don’t feel qualified to be a presenter, consider helping with set-up, registration, hospitality, or clean-up. Jeff will find a spot for anyone who wants to help. Contact Jeff at 317 341-4012 to let him know how you want to be of service at the workshop.

  • S-Z Dessert

IISAA Fall Retreat – October 19, 20, 21, 2018

Cardinal Principals of Recovery

Exploring the Cardinal Principals of Recovery

This retreat is for sex addicts and co-dependents of sex addicts who are members of SA, SAA, SCA, SLAA and COSA.

Cardinal Principals of Recovery
One definition of the word “principle” is, the basic way in which something works. And, that is the way we are using the term as we look at the basics of the SAA program.

Some principles are defined within the structure of an organization. Just as there are an official 12 Steps, 12 Traditions and 12 Concepts of Service, that many recovery programs follow, there are also 12 Principles. Some of the other basic understandings of working a recovery program are experiential; they are learned in the process of doing the work.

Much of the “collective experience” of 12-Step programs is sharing those principles of recovery that have led others to sobriety and serenity.

During the retreat, we will examine both the formal and informal principles that underlie our program of recovery.

If you decide to attend the retreat after October 5, it is best to register by phone. Please call Mike C. at (317) 784-2180.
