What we're about

Doubt your beliefs? Have questions about changing or leaving your faith?

You are not alone, and we are here to help.

Learning how to live after questions, doubts, and changing beliefs is a journey. We at Recovering from Religion are intimately familiar with this path and are here to help you to cross that bridge. Our passion is connecting others with support, resources, community, and most of all, hope.

The primary focus of a Recovering From Religion support group is to provide ongoing and personal support to individuals as they let go of their religious beliefs. This transitional period is an ongoing process that can result in a range of emotions, as well as a ripple effect of consequences throughout an individual’s life. As such the support meetings are safe and anonymous places to express these doubts, fears, and experiences without biased feedback or proselytizing.

We are here to help each other through this journey.

If you find you need to talk with someone before the meeting date, RfR has a hotline and online chat for that express purpose. Call (844) 368-2848 to speak with someone or go to http://www.recoveringfromreligion.org to chat online.

If you’re seeking professional help, we can offer the Secular Therapy Project to provide options to connect with a professional therapist. All therapists have been thoroughly vetted by our organization and offer only evidence-based and non-religious treatment. Connect with them at https://www.seculartherapy.org .

RfRx - Mind Control: Don’t Let an Old Flame Burn You Twice with Janice Selbie

As devout Believers, we were discouraged from thinking critically and encouraged to only think through the lens of our specific religion. While we have been able to Divorce Religion, we remain vulnerable to the trap of rigid, authoritarian thinking in all spheres. This module of the Divorcing Religion Workshop explores the fusion of identity with beliefs and how we can avoid it. As a registered professional counsellor with a personal history of religious trauma syndrome, Janice is passionate about helping others understand their losses and embrace their new identity in the secular world. Her own deconversion experience compelled her to develop the on-line Divorcing Religion Workshop, a 6-week interactive workshop combining written exercises and group work to bring together those from diverse backgrounds who are walking a similar journey. The first hour will be the topic discussion, followed by a Q&A session in which you can ask the guests your great questions. After the Q&A we’ll open up the lines for everyone and just talk and hangout for a bit with the hosts and guests(s). For RfRx comments, inquiries & topical questions, email us at [masked].
