Men's Recovery Intensive - February 6-9, 2020
“We need to get to the roots…”
Most struggles are more complicated than they seem at face value. This is definitely true of sexual addiction. Your years-long struggle with out-of-control sexual behavior leaves you wondering, “What’s wrong with me?” or “Why can’t I stop doing this?” Addiction is so powerful because it makes it difficult to understand the full extent of your problem.
Addiction as a Tree
So, think of addictive behavior as the branches of a tree. You’ve tried – probably in isolation – to cut off the unhealthy branches and stop the behavior, not realizing that there are deep roots feeding those branches. The roots come from many different experiences that influenced and shaped our lives, and they influence the unhealthy things you do now. It is impossible to remove a tree by branch management. We have to deal with the tree by getting to its roots. The roots of our addiction affect us physically, emotionally, and spiritually. We must address them to discover how we came to find ourselves in addiction, why it’s so hard to escape, and what a path to healing could look like.
The Roots Retreat is a spiritual, therapeutic experience for men who struggle with sexual addiction. During the weekend, you’ll work with therapists who will help you understand the many root issues that contribute to addiction. The experience is the equivalent of months of individual weekly therapy. Men who have attended the Roots Retreat often say it was the singular experience when they began to make real progress toward healing, freedom, and recovery.
Some of the topics we’ll address include:
- Family of origin issues
- Past abuse (physical, emotional, sexual)
- Core beliefs about self, others, and God
- Shame over out-of-control behavior
- Beginning a life of recovery
- Taking responsibility
- Establishing new, healthier roots & patterns
- Dates: October 3-6, 2019
- Cost: $1500 ($500 non-refundable deposit due after registration is approved)
