The Soul Kitchen Spiritual Retreat

October 6, 2017 @ 6:00 PM - October 8, 2017 @ 1:00 PM


SOUL KITCHEN – A Spiritual Retreat for People in Recovery

Our Theme – Emotional Sobriety

There are two types of sobriety: Physical and Emotional. Join us for a weekend at the Villa Desiderate as we explore ways we can all get off the recovery merry-go-round of unhealthy emotional habits. We will seek, as Bill Wilson did, to identify and ultimately break those faulty dependencies on people and circumstances that block us off from many of the greatest gifts recovery life has to offer… peace, joy and true freedom from the bondage of self!

Retreat Cost $140 (Deposit of $40 required)
Includes: Lodging, Meals and Programs

OCTOBER 6th – 8th, 2017
Villa Desiderata – Spiritual Retreat Center
3015 N. Bayview Lane, McHenry, IL 60051

October ‘17 Retreat Committee: Ben C., Claude M., Joe N., Laurie-Faith G., Mae Y. Ryan K., Susan L.

Please note: Our retreats are co-ed (separate living quarters); limited scholarships will be available*

* A modest retreat fund is available for partial scholarships. If money is an issue, please let us know ASAP so we can help accommodate. We do not want a lack of funds to prevent anyone from experiencing the freedoms that a retreat at the Villa Desiderata may bring.

“Nowadays my brain no longer races compulsively in either elation, grandiosity or depression. I have been given a quiet place in bright sunshine.“ – Bill W.
