26th-28th May 2023 CoDA Mixed Retreat – Noddfa

Friday 26th to Sunday 28th May 2023

The CoDA Noddfa retreat committee are happy to announce an additional retreat is being organised this year at the ever popular and wonderful location of Noddfa, Penmaenmawr in North Wales. The Retreat runs from Friday 26th May to Sunday 28th May.

This is a bank holiday weekend so may allow members to attend who would find the restricted timing of travel to and from Borth Wales difficult. It may also allow more to stay over Sunday night to travel home on the Monday.

Additional meetings may be occurring on the Sunday and Monday after the usual retreat closure but will not be scheduled.

TO SECURE A PLACE
We can only offer a maximum of 27 rooms for this retreat. Places are expected to be taken quickly. Due to previous non-attendance and cancellations we are testing a new approach and boundaries.

Please first reserve a place with the committee, providing your email address and (mobile) phone number to CoDANoddfaRetreat@outlook.com or 07853865040

It is important that we be able to contact you to confirm your place and attendance on the retreat and to confirm numbers for our hosts.

We will then send you the payment information for Noddfa and ask you to directly to pay a non-refundable deposit of £30. Then send a receipt or screenshot from your payment (online banking app, reference etc).

Do not pay any money unless we have confirmed a place is available. Once your deposit is paid your place is confirmed.

The total cost for the retreat accommodation and facilities (including the deposit) for the Friday to Sunday is £160.

The retreat registration is £10 paid on arrival (cash preferred), to help with literature and admin costs etc.

Location:
NODDFA, Conwy Old Road, Penmaenmawr, North Wales LL34 6YF

Additionally, there is a £10 Registration Fee to be paid on arrival which goes to CoDA.

There will be an initial cut off for reserving places on the 28th April.

Please not that you may also arrange separately with NODDFA if you wish to stay on the nights before or after the retreat.

Retreat timings

Registration is from 4pm on 26th May (Dinner 6.30pm) and the retreat ends Sunday 28th May at 3pm.

  • This is a Codependents Anonymous UK Approved Mixed Retreat. CoDA Traditions are observed, and only CoDA approved literature is available for sale.
  • The retreat will adhere to the 12 Steps and 12 Traditions of Codependents Anonymous.
  • No outside speakers are involved.

There will be a social gathering on the Saturday evening – please share your talents with us! (though do be mindful of Tradition 6, i.e. no outside enterprises). All activities are optional.

Readings at meetings throughout the weekend will be taken from the following literature:

  • The CoDA big book
  • The Codependents Anonymous Workbook
  • In This Moment daily meditation book
  • …along with reading selections from CoDA approved literature.

CoDA literature will be available to purchase during the retreat.


Bring along a teddy, picture of yourself as a child and anything that may help reach and comfort your child within.

The Retreat will take place at Noddfa spirituality centre. Noddfa is home to a small, extremely kind and friendly spiritual group of religious Sisters and is a venue used by 12 Step and numerous other groups throughout the year. It is a lovely old house with views of the sea and the hills. The grounds are full of trees, colourful shrubs and flowers. There is also a walled vegetable garden, a labyrinth and many other hidden treasures.

NODDFA is a Welsh word meaning ‘haven’ or ‘refuge’. A place of peace and welcome, a place where you can regain energy. This is the venue we have again chosen for our Retreat and we hope it will be a time for you to relax and recharge while taking time to be self-aware.

During your stay it is not compulsory to attend all the meetings if you do not wish to.

The beach is a 10 minute walk downhill, and obviously it takes longer coming back. The mountains are also accessible and the grounds around Noddfa are vast. Most of the bedrooms are for single occupancy and each floor has ample washing facilities and plenty of tea-making areas.

The rooms (and attendance) will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.

Any further CoDA queries for the retreat
Please contact the retreat committee by phone / Whatsapp on 07853865040 or by email CoDANoddfaRetreat@outlook.com

The food at Noddfa is wholesome and plentiful (and their soda bread is delicious!) If you need a special diet i.e. vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free etc. please inform us when you are arranging your place.

We are looking forward to an exciting and uplifting Retreat and to
welcome new and previous participants.

11th Feb – Joy in the Journey – encouraging Sponsors & Sponsees

Sponsored by – World CoDA Outreach Committee

Saturday, February 11, 2023: 4pm-7:30pm (GMT)

The workshop is sponsored by the World CoDA Outreach Committee and will provide information and encouragement for sponsors and sponsees.

Step Twelve
Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to other codependents, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

Current CoDA sponsors and sponsees will share their experience, strength and hope regarding sponsorship.

Open share will allow participants to share their experience, strength, and hope and ask questions about sponsorship.

If you would like to be a sponsor, or are looking for a sponsor, this workshop with the World CoDA fellowship will be useful.

Registration will occur through Eventbrite. Donations welcomed.

https://coda.org/event/sponsorship-workshop/

Registration required – via Eventbrite

4th Feb 2023 – CoDA UK NSC Annual General Meeting

Time: 10:00-15:00
With fellowship from 15:00-16:00

CoDA UK is holding its next business meeting which is open to members from all the national meetings and representatives of regional groups. This meeting will be the AGM, which we haven’t held for a couple of years, and all members are invited to join us to hear and discuss annual reports from all areas of service work, and to join in fellowship afterwards.

Join us online/by phone to discuss national CoDA business and hear how service in CoDA UK happens. NSC Committee Members and Group Service Representatives (GSRs) are able to vote on any motions proposed. There will be time for questions about the NSC and any aspect of service and our work in the fellowship time after the main meeting ends at 3pm. You can read more about service on the NSC here.

The meeting will follow the successful recent format, with 30 second shares from each member before a vote is taken, if one is required. Please note that there may not be enough time in the meeting to go through any written reports in detail so we ask all members to come prepared, having read the reports and agenda items in advance, so that we have time for questions, and sharing and reflection during each agenda item.

Please note, the minute taker will record any votes and actions, which we will review at the end of the meeting. Any references to individuals are on a first name basis only. If you do not wish to be mentioned by name in the minutes, please make this clear to the minute taker.

There is no requirement to attend the whole meeting – feel free to drop in at any time during the day. We ask that you put your name and home group (if you have one) in the chat, and please mention if you’re a GSR so we can keep track of the voting entity for any items which require a vote.

AGM Reports – for meeting

Important point – please read through the attached reports before attending the meeting. We have a lot of business to attend to and there may not be time to go through every report in detail during the meeting, so it’s important that members have some understanding of what’s being discussed in advance – especially those who can vote (NSC committee members, GSRs and anyone voted by their group to be acting GSR for the day).

This Workshop we will be viewing parts of the Twelve-Piece Relationship Toolkit Booklet, together with the new revised Making Choices in Recovery Booklet, which is full of amazing affirmations.  We will also be looking at the Co-Dependents Anonymous (Blue) Book – Chapter Five and also how CoDA Conference Endorsed literature has helped us or might help us in our CoDA road to recovery, sharing our experience, strength and hope.

If we have time we will view other CoDA Service Conference (CSC) endorsed literature.

  • 5.05 – Sharing time
  • 5.55 – Close of workshop
  • 6.00 – Open for discussion, outreach offers, requests & questions till 6.30

To make the most of this interactive workshop we suggest that you join using a laptop, desktop or tablet device with your video on so we can all see each other, see the readings and have access to the chat box.

Please remember you can save the materials in the chat box by clicking on the three dots to the right at the bottom of chat. Choose “save chat”. Text document saved in your documents folder. Separate folder called Zoom.

It is important that we be able to contact you to confirm your place and attendance on the retreat and to confirm numbers for our hosts.

We then ask they you contact NODDFA directly to pay a non-refundable deposit of £20 (or pay the full balance) as a commitment to attendance.)

Please provide them with your phone number and if possible an
email address to contact you for information relating to the retreat and your booking and cancellations.

There will be an initial cut off for reserving places on the 10th December.

Please not that you may also arrange separately with NODDFA if you wish to stay on the nights before or after the retreat.

Retreat timings

Registration is from 4pm on 13th January (Dinner 6.30pm) and the retreat ends Sunday 15th January at 3pm.

  • This is a Codependents Anonymous UK Approved Mixed Retreat. CoDA
  • Traditions are observed, and only CoDA approved literature is available for sale.
  • The retreat will adhere to the 12 Steps and 12 Traditions of Codependents Anonymous.
  • No outside speakers are involved.

There will be a social gathering on the Saturday evening – please share your talents with us! (though do be mindful of Tradition 6, i.e. no outside enterprises). All activities are optional.

Readings at meetings throughout the weekend will be taken from the following literature:

Bring along a teddy, picture of yourself as a child and anything that may help reach and comfort your child within.

The Retreat will take place at Noddfa spirituality centre. Noddfa is home to a small, extremely kind and friendly spiritual group of religious Sisters and is a venue used by 12 Step and numerous other groups throughout the year. It is a lovely old house with views of the sea and the hills. The grounds are full of trees, colourful shrubs and flowers. There is also a walled vegetable garden, a labyrinth and many other hidden treasures.

NODDFA is a Welsh word meaning ‘haven’ or ‘refuge’. A place of peace and welcome, a place where you can regain energy. This is the venue we have again chosen for our Retreat and we hope it will be a time for you to relax and recharge while taking time to be self-aware.

During your stay it is not compulsory to attend all the meetings if you do not wish to.

The beach is a 10 minute walk downhill, and obviously it takes longer coming back. The mountains are also accessible and the grounds around Noddfa are vast. Most of the bedrooms are for single occupancy and each floor has ample washing facilities and plenty of tea-making areas.

The food at Noddfa is wholesome and plentiful (and their soda bread is delicious!). If you need a special diet i.e. vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free etc. please inform Noddfa when you are booking directly with them.

NODDFA details are as follows:

We are hoping to plan further workshops for our region to aid and strengthen our CoDA recovery, and a two day workshop on the 12-Piece Relationship Toolkit and or the Blue Book has been suggested. We need your input to arrange this, so please join us.

We are hoping members might like to come forward as representatives of:

  • their home group,
  • General Service Representatives (GSRs),
  • ordinary CoDA members as well as newcomers who might think about enhancing their CoDA Recovery by dipping their toes into enjoying CoDA fellowship and service.

No one is ‘in charge’ – we are all trusted servants willing to give what we have been freely given: recovery from codependency. 

Please join with us – we need your support to continue carrying the message of CoDA recovery, experience, strength and hope to the still-suffering codependent. All are welcome.

We look forward to welcoming you on Saturday 22nd October 2022 – ‘doors’ open from 1.45pm, workshop starts 2pm until 4.30pm.

your booking and your email address at petehcoda@outlook.com

Registration is Friday 7th October from 4pm (Dinner 6.30pm) and the retreat ends Sunday 9th October at 3pm.

  • Traditions are observed, and only CoDA approved literature is available for sale.

  • No outside speakers are involved.

There will be a social gathering on the Saturday evening – please share your talents with us! (though do be mindful of Tradition 6, i.e. no outside enterprises). All activities are optional.

Noddfa is home to a small, extremely kind and friendly spiritual group of religious Sisters and is a venue used by 12 Step and numerous other groups throughout the year. It is a lovely old house with views of the sea and the hills. The grounds are full of trees, colourful shrubs and flowers. There is also a walled vegetable garden, a labyrinth and many other hidden treasures.

NODDFA is a Welsh word meaning ‘haven’ or ‘refuge’. A place of peace and welcome, a place where you can regain energy. This is the venue we have again chosen for our Retreat and we hope it will be a time for you to relax and recharge while taking time to be self-aware.

During your stay it is not compulsory to attend all the meetings if you do not wish to.

Meetings are every 3 months and are principally a forum for Group Service Representatives (GSRs) and members to come together in CoDA spiritual principles of service and unity to discuss CoDA business, share what is working in their meetings, raise issues, and discuss putting on events and other community building activities.

Due to low attendance from GSRs and members, and a shortage of people willing to take over as committee members, the next meeting will be discussing the winding down of the committee and a possible move to quarterly service workshops and GSR Forum. Please come along to share  experience, strength and hope.

Sat, 8th Oct 22 – CoDA Online Sponsorship Workshop

Working the steps in CoDA;
Exploring different sponsorship approaches

Saturday 8th October 2022, 4pm – 6.30pm (UK time) (12pm – Noon – EST)
(doors open 3.30; there will be a 15 minute comfort break)

  • Are you looking for a sponsor?
  • Are you wondering if you’re ready to be a sponsor?
  • Are you looking for new sponsees?

Come along to listen and share experience, strength and hope about being a sponsee, a sponsor or a co-sponsor.

This workshop is an introduction to the various ways of sponsorship, and not necessarily the place where you will find a sponsor. People will share how they found a sponsor. You have to do your part. Finding a sponsor is an active process within Recovery. We have to investigate our own route to acquiring a sponsor through attending weekly meetings, doing service in a home group and joining WhatsApp groups (see below).

No registration is required to attend this event. Zoom limit of 100 people

Format: A CoDA meeting with a 15 minute break. Only CoDA speakers. Only CoDA approved literature.

No entrance fee. 7th Tradition donated to your home group.

7th May 2022 – NSC meeting

Time: 12:50 for 13.00-17:00

In recent years, the National Service Committee (NSC) of CoDA UK has flourished, with members filling most of the available service positions. However, due to personal circumstances, several committee members have recently had to step down from their roles, and this means there are a number of vacant positions, which could have an impact on the work of the NSC. 

Available roles are now all listed on the website here: https://codauk.org/open-service-positions/ and you can see the full list of committee roles here: https://codauk.org/nsc-service-positions/

To take account of all these changes and ensure the health of the NSC, it has been agreed by members that we will hold an open Group Inventory to look at the NSC and its work at our next scheduled meeting on 7th May. Everyone in the fellowship is welcome to attend. 

The format for this session is included in the attached agenda and the meeting will be chaired by Andy from the London and South East Region.  

Please join the zoom call just before 1pm

17th Jul – Fear vs Love (Founders Share)

Global Conversation with Ken & Mary – 14:00 BST

Ken R. and Mary R. founded Co-Dependents Anonymous in 1986. Today, they specialize in helping people achieve their maximum effectiveness by applying the practices and principles of CoDA’s Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions.

The Q&A (question and answer period) will provide a question from each language to be asked on a first come first serve basis. There will be a round robin of one question per language. Submit your question to your Interpreter who will submit the translation to Events. English speaking attendees can give their question to Events directly. There will be further instructions in the morning to help connect to the Interpretation channels, and more.  

For safety, registration is a 2-Step process with Eventbrite and then with Zoom. Please expect a Zoom Invitation to REGISTER A SECOND TIME before the event. COMPLETE the ZOOM REGISTRTIO and the Zoom Webinar link to the Global Conversation with Ken & Mary will be sent to your email before 17th July.

Translation will be available in Farsi, French, Hebrew, Italian, Mandarin, Russian, Spanish, Ukrainian, and Portuguese.

This World Event will have 9 languages being interpreted in a consecutive style which means the presenter will speak then pause (meaning the English room will be silent) to give time for the Interpreters to convey their message in the Zoom interpretation channels. This speak and pause method will occur for the duration of their talks and the Q&A.
