Sat. May 30: Life ReScripted Workshop

Are painful memories holding you back? 

ReScript them at this workshop!

Life ReScripted is a (FREE!) experiential workshop that uncovers and clears unresolved issues that can undermine recovery. There are strong and compelling reasons why these issues persist. 

A rescripting identifies and transforms the root cause of our self-sabotaging choices & behavior.

Time: 2:00 to 6:00 pm, Dwier Center (392 Church Street, Groveville, NJ).

Support COA Baseball! 

To kick off their 2015 season in the New Jersey Amatuer Baseball League, the City of Angels baseball team, the Angels, will host a fundraising event with the Trenton Thunder at Arm & Hammer Stadium in Trenton on Friday, June 5th, 2015.


As Rich Fisher, writer for the Trentonian, put it "If the story of the newly formed City of Angels adult amateur baseball team doesn't make you feel good, then you're either the crankiest person on earth or the emotionless Dr. Spock from Star Trek. This is a story of second chances, dedication and courage." Click here to read more.

City of Angels will have a 400 stadium tickets to the Thunder's Friday night 7:00pm June 5th, game against the Harrisburg Senators (a Washington National affiliate) at Thunder's Arm & Hammer Stadium. Tickets are $11 and it's "Pink-Hat" give-away night. The game will be dedicated to the memory of the Angels star pitcher, Sage Ferraro, who lost his battle with addictions on July 14, 2014. City of Angels is a non-profit, 501c.3 and proceeds will go to support COA's community outreach efforts with the AngelsTo buy tickets, click here.

In addition, on Saturday, June 20 at 10:00am, the Angels will play our annual Sage Ferraro Memorial Game at Thunder Stadium against the NJ Spartans in a regular season NJABL game. There will be no charge for admission, though donations will be accepted and we encourage everyone to come out for this game, too!

"Apparently I am on my path," says "Wings Over Water: Creativity in Recovery host Kathy Moser. "Yesterday I took the signed photo of Stephen Tyler that I got when I played at Recovery Unplugged out of my tour folder, propped it up in my office and reloaded my tour folder with details for this Nashville trip. Today I run into him in Nashville. Thank you universe!"
