SLAA retreat – Day two


Today was the second day of the Wellington SlAA Retreat. I am really tired but happy.

last night I couldn’t sleep till 1 am cause another slaa member in our room snored really loud. so me and another guy had to look for another room. then I was up at six am. my clock is set up for the time my kids come into the room. when I couldn’t stay asleep I just got up and said my prayers and started having breakfast.

we basically had sessions that deep dive into every step and we got all the way to step 9. there was a fair bit of sharing for up to step 4/5 and then the sharing got a bit light. I guess because less people had experience in the later few steps. it was wonderful.

we had a nice outdoor lunch and the sun was out the weather was great. then we had an hour and a half of afternoon break and a few of us went for a drive and a walk, the nature was gorgeous. Below are some more pictures I took.

Dinner was a great gathering of friends, wonderful team work and collaboration effort. and after dinner two of us went down to the rive and started throwing rocks in the water. it was great. felt like little kids again. I loved it.

when I got back they had a social night organized, it was NZ quiz. didn’t work for me at all, very quickly felt out of place. (I am not kiwi by the way) so I decided to take a bit of time to myself in a corner and post this. I will go to sleep soon. (I hope) cause I am beat.

SLAA Retreat – Day one


I am now attending the SLAA Retreat in Wellington. A few of us flew to wellington and hired a car to the retreat location.  the first day had only one session, we basically arrived, had a light meal for dinner then went straight into a meeting. the first meeting was just about getting current and sharing how we are feeling, and how we are in relation to the camp.

after the meeting some of us took a walk down to the river and I took a few shots. not the best picture quality but they were too beautiful not to share. 🙂

this is where I am spending the weekend with other SLAA members
