New Program for COR Retreat Alumni: EnCOR

Burt NordstrandI have exciting news for COR Retreat alumni.

For some time now, we have been looking for a way to help COR Retreat alumni take their recovery to the next step--literally. We are pleased to announce the establishment of EnCOR, a follow-up retreat designed to guide you through Steps 4 through 12. EnCOR will be an amazing opportunity to be together, once again, at the McIver Center and continue our recovery through the 9th Step--where the miracles occur for many of us--and on to the 12th Step--where we celebrate our spiritual experience and commit to abstain by carrying the message.

Like the original COR Retreat, EnCOR will last 5 days and 4 nights and the $950 registration fee will include lodging, meals and all retreat materials. To attend you must have completed the first 3 steps. 

As always, Nancy will lead the retreat.

Here is the link to the EnCOR registration page where you can sign up.

I look forward to continuing our recovery journey together.
