Soaring Spirits provides widowed people with the chance to meet socially, and to create a local community of widowed friends through our Regional Social Group program. Groups are led by our awesome volunteer facilitators who plan meetings twice a month in their geographical area.
Our meetings are focused on assisting widowed men and women in rebuilding their social structure post-loss. We don’t provide any presented content, and all of our meetings are held in easily accessible public locations. Our aim is to assist widowed people in getting back out into the world, with a group of understanding friends by their sides!
The Soaring Spirits site allows you to search for a group near you and their upcoming events (http://www.soaringspirits.org/regional-social-events). Just type your city or zip code in the search box and how far you're willing to travel and the events and groups will be listed. You can RSVP to the event to have the group leader contact you by email.
If you've attended at least one of our Camp Widow events and believe that the Soaring Spirits model of spreading hope via peer-based programming is a good fit for you - or if you have questions about this Soaring Spirits program - please contact me at [email protected] or post a comment here in this Forum.

I wish there were groups near Cincinnati, Ohio
Closest one to me is 300 miles away, a 4.5 hour drive. :(
Please have groups added in Sacramento California. I’m going through a very hard time learning how to live without my husband.
