DC’s latest newsletter

Washington DC Intergroup offers a new issue of its newsletter.

This issue contains an article by J.G. titled, “Relationships, Codependency, and Recovery”:

Interacting with my boyfriend can trigger my character defects, and without noticing it, I may regress. My major character defects are being controlling, dishonest, mistrusting, and selfish. In my experience, these come up regularly and can cause problems if I am not working my program.

as well as “My Story” by C.S.:

Reality was smacking me in the forehead and in an instant it became clear that my life was indeed totally out of control. The discovery by my partner last November saved my life. It gave me the first opportunity to examine my character defects, understand what it was that had happened, and how to begin looking at a future with healthy relationships and friendships.

Last call for Los Angeles retreat

annual Labor Day retreat is only a month away — Room reservations are
being snapped up, and space is limited.  Reservations are being
accepted on a first come basis.  Our last retreat was an extraordinary
experience of sharing, acceptance and terrific workshops that ranged
from meditation and Yoga to art expression and even a weekend barbecue!
 Labor Day should be filled with terrific fellowship and personal
growth. Please take a look at the online brochure and sign up!  And
pass this along to some one who also may benefit too.

Thanks for letting us be of service,

Your Retreat Committee
