One of the ways I grow in recovery is by attending conferences, which I did this February when I participated in the International Women’s Conference in Phoenix, Arizona. It was very empowering to be with 3,600 women in sobriety count down and connect with each other through our experiences. The workshops and speakers were amazing, and going with a close friend wasn’t necessary as we all felt close and connected. Although it wasn’t possible to attend all the workshops offered, it was nice to connect with others at the end of the day and share our favorite messages which we called WIH or “What I Heard”. With so many women, there is a lot to do and so much wisdom to absorb. The optional banquet was paired with powerful speakers who delivered inspiring messages in the spirit of our primary purpose. The meeting continues at the dinner table. This is an experience you must not miss.
