IN THE SPIRIT OF AA: A Twelve-Step Retreat  

Friday, August 19 - Sunday, August 21, 2022

Spend a weekend getting back to the key that unlocks the 12-Steps for those who follow them. We will take slightly different approach to these conventional steps and traditions. Recovery can be a traumatic shock to the system, as are all experiences of God. We find God in adversity and weakness; in our common disease will be found our common strength and courage. 

Fr. Isaac Kalina has been a monk of Valyermo since 1984. Having completed his theological degree in Rome at Collegio Sant' Anselmo, he was ordained a priest in 1989. He has served the Abbey as Prior, Sub-prior, Kitchenmaster, Youth Director, Assistant Novicemaster, Vocation Director, and Juniormaster. He is involved in retreats, workshops, bilingual ministry, 12-step recovery, addiction counseling, spiritual direction and grief coaching.
