COSA Meeting Format
Here in the COSA Zoom Room (CZR) members are able to attend a 12 Step Meeting in the privacy of their own homes.
Each of our Zoom Rooms are password protected to ensure the anonymity and safety of our members.
Please email the COSA Zoom room at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to attending your first meeting. Tell us a bit about yourself and why you feel COSA is right for you.
COSA Diversity Statement
Please note all meetings in the COSA Zoom Room are closed to COSAs only, which means we do not allow information gathering or training of any kind by therapists, students, educators, medical professionals or others. Thank you for respecting our safety.
Several Types of COSA Meetings are available:
Topic meetings are available daily at various times (see meeting schedule). A topic is chosen from COSA approved literature and presented at the meeting – all materials are supplied to you. Participants are then invited to share their ESH (Experience, Strength and Hope) with others in the group. Topic meetings are appropriate for newcomers.
Sexual Anorexia-Avoidance Meeting:
This meeting is open to those who have been affected by compulsive sexual behavior, focusing on the pain, anger, shame, and experiences of COSAs dealing with another’s sexual anorexia or the compulsive avoidance of sexual intimacy. This meeting is open to newcomers.
This meeting format provides an opportunity for COSAs who need a sponsor and COSAs who are willing to sponsor to meet and learn more about sponsorship. Please attend at least 6 meetings in a row to discern if COSA is right for you before getting a sponsor.
HIR (Healthy Intimate Relationship) Meeting:
HIR meetings are intended for those members in recovery. HIR (or Healthy Intimate Relationships) is a style of blended meeting in which both COSAs and sex addicts are welcome to participate fully, with or without partners. This meeting uses the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of COSA to help us develop a greater capacity for empathy and emotional intimacy in our primary love relationships. Please note that this meeting is in a zoom room with a different number and password. To receive the information, contact email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org for access to the meeting.
The COSA Zoom Room is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for all COSA members to use. Regularly-scheduled meetings have priority use.
Step Study Meeting:
These meetings are intended to create a group that will work the 12 Steps together over a period of time. It is helpful for those who are seeking a co-sponsor or do not currently have a sponsor to work the Twelve Steps.
To keep all of our Meetings safe we recommend that
