This class is for anyone who would like to understand more about the "processes of attachment" that lead to addictions.  This group will come to understand the relationship between addiction and spiritual awareness.  We will also explore various addictions from which people can suffer, not only to substances like alcohol and drugs, but also to work, sex, performance, responsibility, and intimacy.  Whether for ourselves or others we know, learning more about addiction and grace is a great way to experience and offer hope.

If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel.  It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now.  GriefShare is a 13-week grief recovery support group where you can find help and healing for the hurt of losing a loved one.

What often begins as loving, compassionate care can begin to feel like an isolating, stressful, and never-ending burden. It is so easy for loneliness, anger, and resentment to creep into the heart of the caregiver — toward the person being cared for as well as other family members and friends who don't or can’t pitch in. In addition to this, guilt and shame for not feeling loving all the time often gets added to the emotional mix.  This is a common path for many caregivers.  This group is for caregivers responsible for any age person, no matter the relationship.  In this group you will learn tips, meet other caregivers, and receive hope and encouragement.
