Back of the Heart, a retreat with Mark Hart has been CANCELLED for April 1, due to inclement weather 2017, (we're not kidding). It's always hard to make this kind of call, but we had a small group from disparate locations including the hill towns and further north, so it was likely that a large percentage wouldn't be able to make it. We hope to reschedule it for sometime in June. Keep an eye out here for the new date.
However, today's open sitting and Refuge Recovery groups will run as scheduled. 

NEW REGISTRATION PAGE ON EVENTBRITE: See all the open registrations on our new Eventbrite page. (Except for this weekend's retreat with Chas DiCapua) by clicking the "Register Now" button below.

Let us know if you have any questions or comments about the new system.
