After our very successful 6th Mixed Retreat at the beginning of this year at Noddfa, we are happy to announce our 7th annual retreat again. Due to the current situation with the pandemic unfortunately we cannot hold the retreat face-to-face at Noddfa in January 2021 but will be doing all we can to bring the spirit of Noddfa to the online retreat.
This is a Codependents Anonymous UK Approved Mixed Retreat. CoDA Traditions are observed, and only CoDA approved literature is available for.
CoDA Website: http://www.codauk.org
The Codependents Anonymous Approved Mixed Retreat will adhere to the 12 Steps and 12 Traditions of Codependents Anonymous.
Codependents Anonymous is a spiritual program. 12 Step Meetings will be held throughout the weekend and CODA approved Literature will also be available. No outside speakers are involved.
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
It may benefit attendees to have this literature available during the retreat.
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.
The retreat will take place online this year, hopefully returning to the wonderful location of Noddfa house in October and next January. 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.
It is not compulsory to attend all the meetings if you do not wish to.
As the retreat will be held online this year there will be no charge for accommodation. 7th tradition donations and donations to support the work of Noddfa can be made during the retreat.
