Step 6&7 Workshop in L.A.

| No Comments
SCA Los Angeles will have a workshop on Steps Six and Seven (Releasing the Defects of Character), Saturday, September 10th, from 9:00 a.m., to 1:00 p.m., in Art Room 1, of Plummer Park, 7377 Santa Monica Blvd., in West Hollywood.

This is another in the series of workshops to help retain those new to the Fellowship of SCA, and help to move forward in staying sexually sober, through working the Twelve Steps. The workshops are also for those seeking a breakthrough in their recovery from compulsive sexual behavior.

We ask a donation of $10.00, to pay for the workshop materials. None are turned away for lack of funds.

Please bring your AA Big Book, AA Twelve & Twelve, a large Spiral bound notebook, a pen or pencil and your work on the previous Steps, including the Step Four & Five workshop last month.

So far, we have had workshops on Steps One, Two and Three, Four and Five, as well as on Sponsorship. Please join us as we work on Step Six, "became entirely ready," and on Step Seven, "humbly asked."

The workshop will be conducted in English. We are tentatively scheduling another workshop for October, on Steps 8 & 9. Give us your feedback and look for confirmation on that workshop next month. Feel free to download our current flier, and distribute it to your local meeting. Let us know how many to expect, by emailing us at workshops@scalosangeles.org.

Reader contribution: "The Hole in His Soul"

The SCAnner accepts contributions from readers. This one is titled  "The Hole in His Soul, By Dad, For Isaac."

Here is an excerpt:

He instinctively knew he had to do something to make the hole go away. He tried ignoring it everyday. It wasn't easy. He applied the usual compress of watching lots of TV shows.  No good.
