We're going back to one CALM meeting per month (on the 1st Thursday). We will combine the "support" group session in the first hour, with a "topic discussion" in the 2nd hour. [Topic = TBD]
We're meeting in the Holbrook's backyard (until the weather turns or we find another place).
Shaunalei and Eric Erik Andersen will facilitate the discussion.
If you have never been to a CALM (Community After Leaving Mormonism) Meeting, it is a great way for people who are struggling with---or in the process of changing or leaving, or have already (recently) left---their faith, to get support from a community of like-minded individuals.
The meetings are more structured than our other social events to allow for a single/focused conversation to take place in a "support group" setting. The priority is to allow new people to share their stories and/or ask their questions, and have others who have been "out" for a while offer validation, comfort and ideas.
We WILL have refreshments after our discussion (at around 9p). If you'd like to bring something, please do.... but remember our policy of no alcohol at CALM meetings.
Hope to see lots of the NEW people at the meeting! It would be great to meet you and hear your story. :)
