About The Speakers:


Fr. Tim Meier recently retired as a Chaplain in the US Army and is a priest at a Parish in Los Angeles, Ca. He has remained sober since September 1979 and has been active in giving retreats for people in 12-Step recovery programs for more than 25 years. His retreat ministry began in 1990 with an internship under the direction of Fr. Tom W in Oakland, California. Tim led, on average, ten recovery retreats per year around North America prior to joining the military in 2006 - in his 50s, with no prior service.

Tim earned post-secondary degrees in music and biology (Kalamazoo College); philosophy (Loyola, Chicago); immunology (Georgetown); theology and divinity (Weston Jesuit School of Theology), and molecular neurobiology (Stanford). His doctoral dissertation, in part, looked at aspects of traumatic brain injury. He pursued further studies of traumatic stress injuries and diseases at Fort Sam Houston while in the Army.
