Sedona Recovery Series

A series designed to expand awareness and build fellowship.

The Sedona Recovery Series encourages investigation and application of spiritual principles to all problems that appear on the road to happy destiny. The Series provides an exciting array of topics. Explore a new path to love and intimacy, discover how AA history is alive today, learn the art of Centering Prayer, find emotional sobriety, learn how people with long-term recovery have enhanced and deepened their spiritual life in the midst of incomprehensible challenges, or learn a yoga practice where each of the 12 Steps corresponds to a yoga position.

Come to Sedona, Arizona - a gathering place
for spiritual seekers throughout the ages.

Each presenter has many years of experience, strength, and hope to share. They have an ability to communicate their transformative experiences using humor, personal insight, and ancient wisdoms. Each is grounded in the 12 Steps, committed to spiritual exploration, open-mindedness, growth, and expanded awareness. They have emerged from the challenges that are addressed in each particular retreat with a clarity whose sole purpose is to light the path for you. This is not your typical fellowship event. These are intimate weekends, with limited attendance, in a spiritually powerful environment designed inspire and inform your spiritual growth.

Ernest Kurtz has Graduated

Our good friend and mentor, Ernest Kurtz, has passed beyond our sight and hearing last Sunday. Ernie had the interest and the vision to study the movement Alcoholics Anonymous long before treatment and recovery were part of the social lexicon of the 20th century. His book, “Not God,” is on the shelf of every serious student of how this uniquely American phenomena impacted the world. Ernie had a generosity of spirit and inquisitiveness that bordered on delight whenever he was approached with a new piece of information. He treated AA historical research as a breathing organism to be nurtured, rather than a mythology to be engraved. He always reminded us that two independent sources were required for information be treated as factual.

To see Ernie at his best, our friends Dan,Kevin and Bill captured his legacy statement last year on video.

Bill Wilson had a lovely way of describing the passing of loved ones. This is a small excerpt from a letter of June, 1956, to  Mrs. Francis D.

Bill wrote; So death is a test, and a funeral service is or ought to be a graduation exercise. Both for the one risen, and the one left behind. Easier said then done, but Francis that’s our assignment isn’t it…. So in actuality there is no real parting; for the moment, one who has taken the high road or for the other that remains on the low road. But all roads presently join the one to God and there we shall see all those who have gone on before. Devotedly Yours, Bill

If you were encouraged by Ernie's books, follow his direction. This next week, discover the history of your home group and write it down for future generations. It is the best possible send-off we can give our friend.
