Upcoming Events, Retreats, meet-ups & alcohol-free Trips
2021 is a new year. You deserve peace, joy, and a sense of calm. This is much more than a 30-day alcohol-free challenge or sobriety course. It represents you having the courage and openness to listen to the body and make a major change in your life. In this 13 session course, geared towards the newcomer, we’ll cover different recovery paths, is A.A. right for you, how to build community, techniques for calming the mind, spirituality, mindfulness, meditation, and the best part is you won’t be alone… Those days are over. You’ll join fellow course attendees on Zoom and classes are both lecture and small group discussions. Homework and resources are emailed after each class. Classes start Friday January 1st at 3:00 pm EST and course days are Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.
Join fellow Café RE members and give back at our yearly service project. 15% of monthly fees are dedicated to working with non-profits who help those affected by addiction. These are very powerful events. A paramount goal of Recovery Elevator is to empower others with knowledge about alcohol and addiction and how to come together as a community to support those who wish to quit drinking. In addition to community outreach, we also might roll up our sleeves and help build homes, improve existing infrastructure and get to know the locals! This event is for Café RE members only.
Join Paul Churchill and licensed Physician Dr. Michael Steward for this 16 day/15 night intensive retreat in the tropical Guanacaste region of Costa Rica. This program, which consists of three different locations, including a week at plant medicine (Ayahuasca) retreat center Rythmia, is the first of its kind. Space is limited to nine attendees who are needing extra support on their alcohol-free pathways. At RE-Connect, we firmly believe there isn’t anything fundamentally “wrong” with you or that you need fixing. At this retreat, you’ll be reconnecting with others, nature, food, animals, the water, spirit and most importantly your true self. Registration opens February 2021.

Hear what people have to say about these life changing events!
“In October 2018 I had the good fortune of being able to travel to Peru with Paul and the RE community. Not only did I gain some new lifetime friends, but we were able to perform service work and quickly developed heartfelt connections within a local Peruvian community. I’ve been forever changed by the experiences on that trip, and I’m looking forward to future adventures with this group!”
