This is a group dedicated to weight loss and health management through psychological study, spiritual practice, mutual support and coaching. We will read Marianne Williamson's latest book "A Course in Weight Loss: 21 Spiritual Lessons for Surrendering Your Weight Forever" and work the lessons, supporting each other to understand and apply some basic spiritual, coaching and psychological principles along the way. There is opportunity for personal group coaching as well. Please check out the reviews on Amazon to see if this book appeals to you before you join. Members are asked to commit to regular attendance for the benefit of all. We will meet twice a month in Walnut Creek for up to 1 1/2 hours each meeting. There is a small weekly fee of $25 but no- one will be turned away for inability to pay. We can take up to 6 people at a time. If there is enough interest we will create another group. The leader is a trained coach, ACIM student and licensed mental health professional who has worked with Marianne in the past!

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
