All Day GDVI Event of 12 Steps of SLAA Topic Meetings 
Starting at 9:00 AM EST 

  • SESSION ONE: 9am to 11:30am (lunch until 1pm)
    Mindfulness and Meditation: How do we bring mindfulness and meditation into our recovery life? Many have struggled or don’t know how to quiet the mind. In this session, we will have the opportunity to share on struggles or share on tools that have helped us. Asking ourselves how we can be present and shift our focus from fantasy and intrigue to reality. 
  • SESSION TWO: 1:00pm to 2:30pm
    Healthy Relationships: How important it is to have a relationship with self and higher power before dating starts? Let us all share our experiences on what sober dating looks like (the struggles and experiences from those who have tried it or the fears in sharing our recovery with a potential romantic partner). We also can share about developing boundaries with family and friends and how recovery affects all areas of our lives.
  • SESSION THREE: 3:00pm to 4:30pm
    5 – S’s: In this session, we can share on how these tools have helped us in our program or the questions and doubts we have. To counter the destructive consequences of sex and love addiction, we draw on five major resources:
    1. Sobriety. Our willingness to stop acting out in our own personal bottom-line addictive behavior on a daily basis.
    2. Sponsorship / Meetings. Our capacity to reach out for the supportive fellowship within S.L.A.A.
    3. Steps. Our practice of the Twelve Step program of recovery to achieve sexual and emotional sobriety.
    4. Service. Our giving back to the S.L.A.A. community what we continue to freely
    5. Spirituality. Our developing a relationship with a Power greater than ourselves which can guide and sustain us in recovery.
  • SESSION FOUR: 5:00pm to 6:30pm (dinner 6:30pm to 7:30pm)
    Bottom, Middle and Top lines: In this session we will discuss how we arrived at our bottom, middle and top lines. In addition, we can also share examples of what we have created or what we think could be our
    bottom, middle and top lines.
    ○ Bottom lines are the behaviors that we self identify as those destructive behaviors we need to refrain from. Bottom line examples could be include no pornography, no masturbation, no contact with a qualifier.
    ○ Middle lines are areas that may lead us to act out. Some people call this a gray area. Middle line examples could be lying, overuse of social media or binge watching television.
    ○ Top lines lead us away from acting out or addictive patterns. Top lines examples could be
    journaling, going for a walk or attending a meeting.
  • SESSION FIVE: 7:30pm to 9:00pm
    Triggers and how we can handle them: In this session, we can share unexpected occurrences of people, places and things that may lead us to unhealthy thoughts or behaviors. We will share experiences of what has triggered us, what we fear, as well as what tools of recovery we have used when these things come up.
  • SESSION SIX: 9:15pm to 10:15pm
    Fellowship and Getting Current: Included with any session registration
