Information/support group - and "Starting Over" ❶
Happy New Year! You're welcome at our first meeting of 2019! Join us for the start of a phenomenal four-week series with Andy Stanley. What do you do when your original life plan blows up in your face - relationships, health, family, career, finances, whatever - and you need to start over? How do you come to grips with what's happened? with what others did to you? with your own role? How long do you spend looking back, and when is it time to move forward? This series is a life-changer and you do not want to miss it! ➜ Be the first know!

What we're about

See all our upcoming events at:

Welcome to Divorce and Relationship Recovery Castro Valley. This is one of several no-charge, weekly information/support communities intended for anyone dealing with separation, divorce, or other relationship challenges or losses.

Our meetings take place on Sunday afternoons at 4:00 pm at Redwood Chapel, at 19300 Redwood Road in Castro Valley.

During the first part of each weekly meeting, we view a video or hear from a live expert on some topic related to the divorce/separation/loss experience. The second part of each meeting will include supportive, confidential smaller group time, to reflect on what we've learned and what we're dealing with.

We help people through the emotional, spiritual, psychological, legal, financial, health and child-related issues related to divorce and broken relationships. We welcome everyone, without regard to circumstances, timeline or faith background.

We use many of the same materials as in our other communities, including books and videos from psychologists Dr. Henry Cloud and John Townsend ("Boundaries," "Changes that Heal." "Safe People"), Andy Stanley ("Starting Over," "The New Rules for Love, Sex and Dating") and other experts. Between these and other video series, live speakers will include psychologists, therapists, and attorneys presenting practical, actionable information to heal and begin putting your life together again.

There are no fees or registration or membership requirements. With a free Meetup account, you are welcome to join our online group, which will provide additional information about our group and our events. We hope to see you soon at one of our meetings!
