Leaving for Albuquerque at 3:30 am tomorrow. I am not packed. My friend has been packed for months. We are tempermentally quite different. Cannot wait to be on my own and focused on me, myself and I. Selfish program indeed. And to meet Father Keating will be amazing. Not to mention seeing a part of the country I have never seen before. We are going to a conference entitled The Inner Room focusing on the 11th step and Centering Prayer. There will be workshops to deepen our understanding of prayer as well as seminars by Father Keating and another monk. Each evening there is a 12 Step meeting and I have a list of meetings as well. Actually I even have a contact in Albq. who was part of my online group for awhile. He left so I am uncertain if I should try to arrange to meet him at a meeting. I'm sure he's sober but he was unhappy with the group. I think I should. It would be cool. Conscious contact here I come!!!
