CoDA Intergroup North Region are holding our Quarterly Workshop Meeting on Saturday 29th January 2022 at 2pm until 4pm/4.30pm.

We welcome all CoDA Members and Newcomers in Our Region – from Birmingham right up to and including NW and NE England, and including Scotland, together with all Wales and Northern Ireland, to discuss or put forward any questions or problems or suggestions you might have regarding CoDA and we are hoping to plan further Workshops for our Region to aid and strengthen our CoDA recovery, including having weekend Retreats. We need your input so please join us.

We will also be reading and sharing on various CoDA Literature and there will be time for sharing.

We are also looking for support to keep our Intergroup relevant and helpful to serve the needs of all our members. No one is ‘in charge’ – we are all trusted servants willing to give what we have been freely given –
recovery from codependency.

Please join 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.

Again, we look forward to welcoming you on Saturday 29th January, 2022 – ‘doors’ open from 1.45pm starting 2pm until 4pm/4.30pm

January 2022 CoDA Mixed Retreat Noddfa (In Person!)

Friday 14th January to Sunday 16th January 2021

The Noddfa retreat committee are happy to share that with the developments to meeting in person we are able to return to the wonderful location of Noddfa in north Wales to have an in-person retreat in 2022.

Registration is Friday 14th January from 4pm (Dinner 6.30pm) and ends Sunday 16th January at 3pm.

Location:

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

Cost:

The cost for the retreat (Friday to Sunday) to be paid to NODDFA is £150.

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
  • Common threads of codependency
  • Peeling the onion
  • The twelve-piece relationship toolkit

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. 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. Please bring a towel and a hot water bottle for extra comfort.

Please contact Noddfa directory for the price of accommodation and food for your stay, this is paid directly to NODDFA by cheque or BACS. Additionally there is a £10 Registration Fee to be paid on arrival which goes to cover the cost of retreat materials and expenses.

The rooms (and attendance) will be allocated on a first come first serve basis. It is assumed that the retreat will be able to accommodate around 36 attendees as with previous years.

Please speak with either Sister Patrice or Sister Mary-Jo to book and pay for your place at Noddfa mentioning the January 2022 Coda Mixed Retreat. There are limited places as this is a very popular event, so it is suggested you book as soon as possible. Please also notify the retreat committee of your booking and your email address at petehcoda@outlook.com

NODDFA details are as follows:

Phone number: 01492-623473

Email: noddfapen@aol.com

Website: http://www.noddfa.org.uk

Any further CODA queries for the retreat please contact Pete by phone/WhatsApp on 07853865040 or by email petehcoda@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 Noddfa when you are booking directly with them. We are looking forward to an exciting and uplifting Retreat and to welcome new and previous participants.

22nd Jan – CoDA Online Workshop – Working the steps in CoDA

Exploring different sponsorship approaches

22nd January 1pm – 3:30pm GMT
(Doors open 12:30, 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 your experience, strength and hope about being a sponsee, a sponsor or being in a step group.

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 required to attend this event. Zoom limit of 100 people


Next date: These workshops will run quarterly and these dates will be shared.

Format: a CoDA meeting with a 15 minute break

Only CoDA speakers. Only CoDA approved literature.

No entrance fee. 7th Tradition donated to National Committee.

“I bought the “Kindle” version of the 12 & 12 CoDA workbook. Unfortunately, It doesn’t have full Kindle capabilities such as increasing font size and word wrap; it’s really just a glorified PDF . So it’s worth getting the actual book.”
