Event Details

The 3 Days With SHiFT weekend recharge is a powerful program that supports deeper recovery and will help you to identify emotional and spiritual blocks to long-term abstinence and recovery. If you have trouble identifying feelings, dealing with anger, fear or grief, or surrendering to powerlessness over food, this program will give you practical skills that support putting recovery first for the long haul.

Join us in a safe, nurturing environment to learn how to remove stumbling blocks that prevent deep emotional and spiritual recovery.

The 3 Days With SHiFT Program is for you if you:

  • Have previously attended an Acorn Intensive
  • Want more help with your most difficult recovery problems including co-dependency & relapse
  • Have persistent blocks to long-term stable recovery


Whistler is a Resort Municipality nestled in the Coast Mountains of British Columbia just two hours north of Vancouver.

Host Mountain Resort to the 2010 Olympic/Paralympic Winter Games, this legendary resort is an international mountain sports mecca and a down-to-earth mountain town. Two side-by-side mountains spanned by the world-record-breaking PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola give access to Whistler Blackcomb’s renowned alpine terrain, drawing hikers, skiers and mountain bikers in search of mind-blowing landscapes.

At lower elevations, a coastal climate delivers a lush contrast to the volcanic alpine environment. Sparkling glacier-fed lakes, towering old-growth forests, waterfalls, beaches, parks and golf courses are linked by a network of paved valley trails. The place teems with life.


The cost of the 3 Days With SHiFT Program is $1050 USD + lodging
