Welcome to the Raleigh-Durham chapter of Soaring Spirits International! We are an organization run by widowed people for widowed people. This is a social hang-out group, not a support group, although we do offer each other plenty of support. Our members share understanding, encouragement, inspiration, hope, and friendship as we navigate our journey and learn to live without “our person.” We believe re-entry into this new life can be eased by connections with those who've walked in your shoes. We’ve been there. We get it. We hope to provide a place for you to be yourself and discover your new self on this crazy road of widowhood. We meet at least twice per month at local restaurants, parks, movies, plays, museums, and other fun events for fun, laughter, and camaraderie. We’re so very sorry for the reason you found us, but we’re really glad you’re here! You are welcome! And you are not alone.
All widowed persons regardless of age, ethnicity, gender, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, or relationship status are welcome to attend any of our events. We do authenticate widowed status before opening up our group to new members, so please provide responses to the questions and check your MeetUp messages for follow-up. Group members will not have access to any of your personal information. Most of our events are for adults only, but if there is interest in the group, we will occasionally have events that include children.
