Information/support group - and "Starting Over" ❶
Happy New Year! 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! You are welcome without regard to your relationship type or situation, timeline, circumstances or faith background. Learn more about our weekly meetings below. ➜ Our meetings are offered free of charge, but we would be grateful for a donation of $10 per meeting, made either in person (via cash or check) or through a monthly online donation at: ┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈ RECENT VIDEOS: For participants that have missed a session of a recent series, or would like to view one again, we've temporarily posted them as follows: • selected sessions of our recent "Boundaries" series[masked] • selected sessions of our recent series "Rescue Your Love Life" • selected sessions of all our video series ┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈ ABOUT OUR WEEKLY MEETINGS: We gather each Sunday from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm. After a brief introduction, we see a video (or at other times of the year, hear from a live speaker) until about 5:00. Then after an overview of our program and some introductions and announcements, we take a short break and go into smaller groups at about 5:15 for the remainder of our meeting. We welcome anyone and everyone dealing with relationship challenges, separation or divorce, whether happening now, in the past, or perhaps approaching. People of any faith background, or without one, are welcome. ┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈ ABOUT OUR MEETUP GROUP: There are no fees or membership requirements for this program. You do not have to have a Meetup account to attend. If you do have a free Meetup account and join our Meetup group, you'll get automatic reminder messages about our meetings and other news you may need. It would be great if you'd click "Yes" if you're coming to this and future meetings. That makes our group more visible on Meetup, and encourages others to come. ┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈ BAY AREA NEW BEGINNINGS: Our spin-off social group is all about fun events with other emotionally healthy (or at least healing) people.

    What we're about

    ➜ See all our upcoming events at

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

    After meeting since our San Fransisco launch location at Temple Baptist Church on 19th Ave., we are now "on the move." Please see the our Meetup home page for the location of this week's meeting.

    We meet each Sunday from 4:00 to 6:00 pm (and yes, we've changed from our original start time of 1:00pm).

    During the first part of each weekly meeting, we view a video or hear from a guest speaker on some topic related to the divorce/separation/loss experience. The second part of each meeting includes 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!

    We do appreciate donations to the non-profit Divorce and Relationship Recovery Network which operates these groups. Our operating budget amounts to about $10 per attendee per week, and we hope you will gove what you can. Cash gifts and checks are gratefully accepted at our meetings, and you can also set up an online recurring gift (which we especially appreciate), or make a one-time donation, here (
