Join us in welcoming a (to almost all of you) brand-new speaker to the Central Coast! Listen to her ebullient, no-nonsense approach to recovery and journey out of darkness and into a life of hope, strength, endurance, and joy.
Traveling all the way from Santa Barbara, let’s show her we appreciate the lengths she has traveled to share her recovery!
Don’t miss this opportunity to mix and mingle with…
a person with a story of hope and recovery, peace and serenity
a potential sponsor or friend
someone who, as a result of working the steps, is reaching/has maintained goal weight
other recovering members you may not have seen for awhile…
Don’t miss the opportunity to get insight into…someone with another way of looking at their life; the solution; and what may be holding you back
another way to enlarge your OA family/circle of recovery!
Experience some hope, strength, and hear about a new way of life…it’s all here…this Saturday!
