Registration Concerns

Last year we found some glaring deficits in our registration system. This year, 2024, we are doing our own personal inventory to correct those previous issues. What were some of the deficits? Well some of them, not in any particular order, were, as follows: ease of registering, lack of registration confirmations, payment options hard to decipher, and direct follow-up.

To help ensure a much smoother registration process this year, we will be using a professional registration provider. The initial trials with this software seem to answer all of the previous questions. We hope they do. But we also seek your input, once registration opens, to give us your feedback. Just as we addicts, codependents, and co-addicts are never perfected, we will be evaluating other options based on cost and usability for our purposes. It is a reminder of how important the 10th step is. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it. Yes, even your PSRC does this step.

So many of you may be wondering when registration opens this year. As you already know, the retreat this year will be from August 22-25. You will have 5 package options from the full 4 day, 3 night package down to a speakers only package. We will have registration up and running no later than June 10, 2024. We are still making some tweaks to be sure we are ready for prime time. Plus this will allow you almost a 2 month registration window.

Healing Through Grace and Community

We now have a very appropriate tagline for this year’s retreat. It is: Healing Through Grace & Community.

As I type these thoughts, I am thinking how appropriate this is as a theme. First, it is through grace that we can find a new and better life. Second, in order to make this new and better life come true, it requires a strong community. Together we create both community and grace.

I know for me personally, grace and community have led to my most recent strong recovery. After having a major failure in my own recovery, I only found my way back via grace and community. First, I had to accept that I was given grace. Who gave me this grace? It was both my higher power as well as the community I rejoined. If you’d like to know more about my own story, I’d love to share with you at this year’s retreat.

Come on out to one or more days. This year the retreat goes from August 22-25. We will have more time to enjoy community and grace this year. No matter if you are new to recovery or have been coming back long or off and on, you can find some strong positive recovery here. This will be our 35th annual retreat.

For me, I have been coming since 2006. Let me share with you that each year brings its own special value. Just come open to receive from your higher power, and you will receive. There are so many opportunities to strengthen and grow your own personal recovery. Better yet, use this time to grow your own community to help ensure stronger recovery, one-day-at-a-time.

Set aside the dates, August 22-25. Please share with others. Remind your recovery friends that this retreat is for anyone from any of the sexual recovery fellowships. We are open and welcoming. It is through grace and community that we can all recover alone and together.
