Fellowship of the Spirit (FOTS) is a group of alcoholics and friends and family of alcoholics, dedicated to living the principles and way of life described in the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous and to carrying its message to alcoholics and their families.

Throughout the weekend, Fellowship of the Spirit conference has both A.A. and Al-Anon participation. We welcome all to attend who are, or may be, affected by the disease of alcoholism.

We have seen countless lives changed for the better, as newcomers and old timers alike, begin to hear and live the message of the Big Book of A.A.


In 2009, a few members involved with the Fellowship of the Spirit in New York at its conception in 1998 moved to Sedona and began searching for a local venue to hold an annual FOTS conference in Arizona. The goal was to bring the Verde Valley and surrounding area together to enjoy the FOTS experience with alcoholics and families of alcoholics from all over the country and the world. Listen to Mickey M. talk about how the Fellowship of the Spirit conferences got started.

In late 2013, arrangements were made to gather for the first annual FOTSAZ conference to be held at the Poco Diablo Resort in Sedona, Arizona from January 23-25, 2015. We look forward to experiencing the positive changing of lives that we have witnessed during other FOTS conferences, that have brought alcoholics and their families together to live the way of life described in the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous.
