"There is no single better tool for spiritual growth and personal well-being than meditation. Being supported by a group makes meditation much easier. Numerous studies by research labs at major universities have confirmed the effectiveness of meditation to heal and reduce stress. We have witnessed healing of mind, body and circumstances that can be attributed to this group practice.”

“W.I.R.E. - Women in Recovery Excel”

Sundays
7:00 pm


On Sundays, Unity Northwest Church will be hosting W.I.R.E. -Women In Recovery Excel at 7:00pm.  We will be reading from the book "A Women's Way Through The 12 Steps".  Stephanie Covington designed this book to "Help a woman find her own path". 
 
Instead of focusing on one specific addiction issue in this group, we will be focusing on how we struggle with powerlessness and finding the solution through the 12 Steps.  Our goal is to create a sacred space where women can continue to discover the divine within and walk their own unique journey beyond addiction.  Long term recovery brings multiple levels of healing including how we relate to ourselves, others, our sexuality, our purpose and how we relate to the world.    

Come join us if you are interested in growing your recovery to flourish in sobriety. A love offering will be accepted.
