About the Event: 

The second gathering of members of AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) and NA (Narcotics Anonymous) will be held in Pari, May 25 – June 1. The week’s structure is freeform and anarchistic! There will be closed and open meetings, visits to the hot springs, long hours at the bar/restaurant talking, and wonderful food. There will also be visits to Florence and Siena for those who wish to go further afield.

It is not necessary to be a member of either fellowship in order to attend. And we hope that this year, the group will include a few friends and partners. This is also an invitation to anyone interested in Dialogue—note that the 12 Steps and the 12 Traditions for nearly 100 years ‘contain all the wisdom of all the ages.’ 

It is hoped to have discussion groups/workshops on the history of AA and NA; the influence of Carl Jung on Bill W; a talk on Bill W. and Jimmy K. by Irene C.; the deep wisdom of the 12 Steps and the profundity of the 12 traditions.

It is hoped the golden thread running through our week will be
‘The Language of the Heart.’

All of the above in magical Pari—the creation of David Peat and Maureen Doolan. Here we will have wonderful Italian food—and—talk, talk, talk in the outdoor café, with music and dancing in the square, soaking in the sulphur springs, and joy and laughter!

Participating in an event at the Pari Center means not only attending meetings but living for a week in a medieval village, mingling with the local population, eating local dishes, appreciating the beauty of the surrounding countryside, and participating in a very gentle way of life far from the frenzy of work and city living. David Peat compared Pari to an alchemical vessel—a place where transformation can come about—as well as an opportunity to pause for a moment and re-assess one’s life.
