We have a strict policy that our Soaring Spirits Regional Groups are for widowed people. We are part of a larger organization, Soaring Spirits Loss Foundation International, which serves the widowed community worldwide. In order to join as a member of our Meetup, you must be widowed yourself. Each member tells their widowed story and receives peer support from people in the group that understand.
This is a social group and is not therapy, although of course we do talk about our experiences and our feelings. This Regional Group is part of the Soaring Spirits Loss Foundation. Any widowed person regardless of age, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, or religious affiliation will be welcome to attend any of our events. Some of our events are hikes, some are dining based and we've also gone to museums and movies - we will have an event that you will like! Whether you have been widowed for a few months and would like to connect with others who can inspire you and give you hope that you will get past this, or have been widowed for many years and you are welcome to meet with other people who "get it". Regional Leaders have committed to organize two events per month so there will be consistency and continuity.
