We gather together as a group who choose to support each other as we experience our joys and sorrows. We discuss our interests, concerns, and experiences in the check-in part of our meeting. Some of our favorite topics have included programs about members' travels, bringing treasure to discuss with each other, book exchanges where we bring favorite books to lend or give to one another, a discussion of what "sacred" means to each of us. We discuss what coping strategies work well for us and learn from one another. In a recent meeting we discussed how we each cheer ourselves up in difficult times. Our group welcomes seniors who would like to join us.
