An Ignatian, Recovery Weekend Retreat for Men
Retreat Date: March 17-19, 2023
Groups Attending: Individuals
Abstinence, maintained through attending meetings and working the 12 steps, is the foundation of recovery. But abstinence is only the beginning. Quality sobriety includes an invitation to face the issues that may have been present before the first drink, or character traits that were twisted during our using days. Stage Two recovery holds the promise of a meaningful and connected life. This journey enables us to cultivate healthy relationships and move through challenges as a person of integrity and worth.
With more than 30 years of daily spiritual practice, Elizabeth understands the gifts of a contemplative journey. She has given presentations on personal growth and the desire for a deeper understanding of God to a wide range of groups. Elizabeth has served as retreat leader and provided spiritual direction at the Jesuit Retreat House in Oshkosh. In addition, she has lead groups at First Fruits – Women Growing in Faith on topics including prayer and meditation and the spirituality of the 12 Steps. Her goal as a retreat leader is to provide food for thought that encourages individuals to go deeper into self-knowledge and to explore their experience of a Higher Power, God or Deep Self however they define this journey for themselves.
Elizabeth has degrees in Art and Business and is a graduate of the Spiritual Guidance Training Program at the Siena Retreat Center in Racine, Wisconsin. She believes spiritual direction provides a dedicated time and place to explore the movement of Spirit in an environment of openness and respect. Her practice is inclusive of all faith traditions as well as individuals who do not ascribe to any organized religion.
Past careers have included Development Director, Photographer, Employee Assistance Program Coordinator and Funeral Director. She is a member of Spiritual Directors International.
