The Past is Never Really Past: 

Following the Thread of our Life

September 13-15, 2013

Friday 7-9 • Saturday 8:45-4 • Sunday 8:45-12

at the FRESH Renewal Center in Augusta, MO

Our present is the accumulation of past experiences, but quite often seen with greater clarity and a willingness to share what we have learned with others. 

During this weekend workshop we will invite “our memory” to look with fresh eyes at experiences and people who made their mark on our lives. 

Bring your special items — 

Please come armed with a collection of family photos, pieces of jewelry and other bits of memorabilia to guide your thinking and writing.

About the Presenter

Karen Casey, Ph.D. has more than 3 and a half decades in AA and Al-Anon. She made a commitment to women and men in recovery from the moment she walked through the doors of a 12 Step meeting in 1974. Her work as a writer for people in recovery, coupled with her work as a lecturer and workshop presenter, followed.

Her first book: EACH DAY A NEW BEGINNING: DAILY MEDITATIONS FOR WOMEN was written in 1982. It was followed by THE PROMISE OF A NEW DAY in 1983 and an additional 25 books since then. Her focus in the recent few books has been on relationships and how to live in them more peacefully.
