What we're about

Greetings. This Meetup group group, together with three others, participates in weekly relationship support groups held on Sunday afternoons starting at 4:00 pm Pacific time.

During the first part of each of our weekly meetings, 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.Β We welcome everyone, without regard to circumstances, timeline or faith background.

This Meetup group was originally based in Oakland, California, but we're
"went virtual" with Zoom as soon as COVID-19 started, and currently plan to remain online for the foreseeable future. Anyone from anywhere is welcome to join and participate. We have Zoom groups meeting on both Sunday afternoons and Wednesday evenings. Login details at http://www.divorceandrelationshiprecovery.org/virtual

The best way to stay informed about this new group is to join it - then you'll get e-mail updates as our plans develop. Thank you!
