I want to take a moment to tell the story of how this mens retreat came about. My sponsor asked me if i wanted to go to a men’s retreat in Malibu and i said yes. On the way back from that retreat we spent the time talking about recvovery and then he asked “Why don’t we have a mens retreat in Arizona”? I couldn’t think of a good reason why we didn’t have a mens retreat, other than nobody had started one. We went back to the Malibu retreat a few more times, and each time on the way home someone would inevitable say “Why don’t we have a mens retreat in Arizona” or “We should really have our own mens retreat”. So one year Bill and I decided we were going to start one in Arizona, and we began planning the first “Arizona NA Men’s Spiritual Retreat” for February 2013.
