Are you a single or partnered person over 50ish interested in a support group that openly discusses and learns from each other about the evolving life and emotional challenges of aging, such as partial or full retirement, health matters, family concerns, relationships and isolation, transitions, maintaining energy and mobility, agility and independence, etc.? If so…

Previous Group Meetings
Our ninth Monday afternoon group, Jun 3rd, had 6 participants (still open to partnered singles for the Mon. group); topics covered included “responsibility for our own happiness,” loneliness, realistic expectations and self-defeating behaviors. Also, feisty discussion around Male vs. female perspective on whether Hillary could have acted otherwise when stalked by Trump in the second Presidential Debate.
Our ninth Wednesday evening meeting, Jun 12th, had 9 participants; heartfelt sharing about family triangles – whether involving an ex and children or mother child and grandchild; boundary issues between mothers and adult dtrs and the challenge of being a first time grandmother; looking about on our youth with mixed feelings; social life and feeling disconnected; slim pickings as we get older?
