What we're about
Meet other local folks in Northwest Connecticut and Southeast New York who are coping with the experience of a divorce or separation. Whether you are currently in the process of divorce, newly single or have been divorced for some time, this is an opportunity to continue the process of healing and personal growth in a caring support group.
The initial shock and trauma of a divorce takes us to a place where we are shattered and feel out of control. After a time our needs move beyond survival and the question becomes, "Who am I?" In this discovery process the next question: "What do I do next?" is easier.
We must first understand our story so that we can move forward to write a new story. If you are ready to take charge and you want to "reinvent your life;" this is a support group in which you can safely explore the next steps of your journey. Learn to be "a person of value" again.
A small group of caring folks meet each week and are willing to share with sincerity and listen with empathy. More than 150 people have attended sessions during the last 5 years. Come for a few weeks, several months or a year. Move on when you have made peace with yourself and found joy in your world again. There is life after divorce.
And now there is a second group that meets with the title of "Moving ON After Divorce." If the chaos of your divorce process is over, but you are still settling into a new life with smaller, transitional issues; this is the group to check out. Even after one's divorce is official, people still find that there can be a sense of aloneness. Here's a place to talk about adjustments, new goals, issues of trust and all those things that people re-inventing life after divorce deal with.
We are not a singles group or a dating network. We are survivors who are growing past our divorces or separations. Attendees come from New York and Connecticut.
