April 22~ Thresholds: Navigating Life Changes Support Group

Join Institute consultants Anne Crook and Heather Tolley as they co-facilitate a 6-week, online, support group. This group focuses on supporting individuals who are on currently navigating a significant change in life and are experiencing painful emotions related to said change. Major life changes bring grief, which often goes unacknowledged by our broader culture and we are left to grapple with difficult emotions largely on our own. Yet, this support group bridges hearts and safeguards us against loneliness/despair in the face of hard change. Registration limited to 10 participants. Learn more and sign up today.
