Support Groups

These groups are safe, nonjudgmental spaces where devotees will create meaningful relationships through heart-connecting conversations.


Compassionate Listening Circles

Resilience is a way of being in the world that enables a person to face a challenge or a problem, work through it and get back to life a little bit stronger and a little bit wiser. It’s about coping with adversity in ways that boost a person’s own sense of well-being and protects them from getting overwhelmed.

Grief Support Group

As we change and grow there will be so many losses, often experienced as something unexpected and unwanted. We might lose a job, a limb, our identity, our home, our faith… Grief is the natural, necessary, normal response to loss. The degree of grief feelings we will have following that loss will depend on how attached we are to the object of our attachment. Grief is a long and arduous process of learning to digest and integrate the pain of loss, and a grieving person never returns to being “normal”.

Dates: November 7, 2021 – April 10, 2022 [12 sessions total]

Time: Every other Sunday 11:00am – 12:30pm New York time
