What’s creating YOUR sense of burnout?
- COVID 19?
- Job Searching?
- WFH AND supervising your kids’ e-learning?
Whatever the cause, this group is for you!
Ever feel overwhelmed and exhausted by everything you need to do, and yet still worry you're not doing enough? It's not a lack of trying, either, to follow all of the "should" advice.
Join us to figure out what wellness can look like in your actual/real life, confront the barriers that stand between you and your own well-being, put those barriers in context and map out paths around and over or through them - and blow them to smithereens. With science.
Leave empowered to create positive change for yourself!
Caregivers’ Support Group
1st Sunday of the month, 3:30-5:30 PM |via Zoom | Save My Seat
Caregivers invest a lot of themselves, as daily living presents new challenges and requires physical, mental, and emotional energy for more than just one’s self. Regardless of proximity — whether your loved one is close to home, or across the country — caregiving is a lot of work. It’s a journey you shouldn’t have to face alone. Journey to Hope offers monthly meetings for caregivers of all kinds. Each session begins with a short presentation from an outside professional on a topic related to caregiving. It's a way to learn new tips and ways of thinking, or doing. It’s also a way to practice self-care and ease one another’s burdens. Group members grow together and become friends as they listen and share their sometimes joyful, sometimes challenging experiences of all that encompasses caregiving. We invite you to join us from 3:30 p.m. until 5 p.m. on the first Sunday of each month.
Note: We do not meet in July.

Courage and Resiliency for Today
Coming in Summer 2021
The struggle of isolation, physical distancing, and economic challenges all create more opportunities than ever to be hooked by an emotion that can bring out the worst of us. We’re going to explore both The Daring Way™ and Rising Strong™ materials by Brené Brown to find a path to more wholehearted living, where we can Show Up | Be Seen | Live Brave. Pre-registration required.
Coming in Summer 2021
While some of the physical distancing requirements are loosening, we are still in challenging times. One way to find peace with the chaos, shortages of goods and services, and limited contact with others, is to search for spirituality in the ordinary. This program is about developing the practice of spirituality in everyday life. Therefore, it is not merely informational (in the head), but inspirational (heart) and transformational (practical living). Come, explore, and lean into the sacred – and leave refreshed with a new perspective to take on your journey. Pre-registration required.

Grief Coaching Group

Tuesday, June 1 | 7-8:30 PM | 5 weeks | via Zoom | Save My Seat
While we all experience grief at certain points in our lives, it can oftentimes feel isolating — like no one understands exactly what we’re going through. Stages of denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance come and go. It’s a scattered process with ups and downs, but it’s normal — especially after facing a loss of any kind. Know that you’re not alone. Your experience is unique; it is special — near and dear to your heart. Whether attempting to cope with the loss of a failed relationship, the death of a loved one, the distancing of a child or friend, there are tools at your disposal. Our coaches are equipped to help you discover your strength and ability to recover. You deserve to feel good again, and you will, as the grieving process gets easier with acknowledgement, time, and action. Sharing your story takes courage, and perhaps the most difficult part of confronting your grief head-on is walking through our doors. We are here to support one another, however, as we focus on the present moment and the freedom that comes when we refuse to allow ourselves to get caught up in “what ifs” and fears loss presents. Pre-registration required.

What would it feel like to create a brave new ending to your story of struggle?
Any struggle qualifies:
- I'll never get ahead because...
- I'm not good enough...
- I'll never find a job...
Rising Strong™ is based on the simple physics of vulnerability: if we are brave enough, often enough, we will fall. This is a curriculum about what it takes to get back up and how owning our stories of strugles gives us the power to write a daring new ending.
Let go of messages like "I'm not _________ enough," to move beyond comparison and embrace the freedom of being authenitcally YOU. Live with more gratitude, self-compassion, and creativity! Pre-registration required.
