What we're about

There is a widowed community here at Soaring Spirits International that can offer you understanding, friendship, inspiration, and encouragement as you learn to live without the person with whom you intended to spend the rest of your life. Widowed people created Soaring Spirits because we discovered that connecting with other widowed people made the challenges of surviving a spouse or partner a little easier to manage. Please join us in San Diego, host city of Camp Widow West, for a social support group run by your peers. We meet twice per month at various locations throughout the city. Events are open to anyone who has lost a partner: men and women of any age, from all faiths and traditions, without regard for relationship status, sexual preference or identification, or parenting status.

In Person Picnic In The Park!

Maxton Brown Park

Wow! An in-person event!

This first one will be in the north county; and future events will be further south.

We will meet near the Soaring Spirits dedication plack at the young trees near the east end of the park. Wear your mask, bring a chair, sunscreen, and a snack. There is street parking throughout the Carlsbad village area, as well as at the transit center.

Come only if you are comfortable and feeling well.

Really looking forward to seeing you there!

Paul, Steve and Elaine
