Tuesday:

10am – Storytelling: Would you like to share stories – real-life or fictional? Are you interested in honing your storytelling skills? Using fun topics and exercises, this group will explore all kinds of storytelling – from recovery stories to “campfire stories.”

11am – Advocacy: Life is filled with opportunities to advocate for ourselves or with others. Whether you’re interested in making a change in the world and looking for a place to start, an expert in advocacy looking to share your skills, or curious about how to advocate for yourself in your own life – this is the group for you.

12pm – Open Discussion: This is an open topic peer support group. This group is a space for anything you’d like to bring up - whether there’s something specific you’d like to seek support around, something going on you’d like to share with the group, or you’re simply looking to chat about an interesting topic.

1pm – Creative Writing: Join us to spend time together responding to fun writing prompts and (optionally) sharing our writing with others, all while enjoying a playlist of songs selected by members of the group. All skill levels welcome!

2pm – Recovery Is Real: What does recovery "look like" to you? What do you think it means to be “in recovery”? How do we work towards recovery day-to-day? In this group we will discuss these questions and more.

3pm – LGBT+ Group: This is an affinity peer support group open to anyone on the LGBTQIA+ spectrum or anyone questioning their gender or orientation.​

 

Wednesday:

10am – Wellbeing: What does wellbeing mean to you? This is a space to explore ideas about wellbeing in every sense of the word and work together towards our own definitions of what it means to be “well.”

11am – Sharing Interests: Have you seen a good movie recently, or read a book that captivated you? Have you come across an interesting video online, or found a type of food that’s new to you? This group is a space for sharing and discussing interests, from years-long hobbies to brand-new discoveries.

12pm – Open Discussion: This is an open topic peer support group. This group is a space for anything you’d like to bring up - whether there’s something specific you’d like to seek support around, something going on you’d like to share with the group, or you’re simply looking to chat about an interesting topic.

1pm – Healing from Difficult Experiences: How do we heal when we have gone through something difficult or experienced trauma? What does the process of healing look like? This is a space to safely discuss the difficult experiences we’ve had, and explore our paths to healing.

2pm – Creative Questions: Would you rather be able to fly or breathe underwater? What is your favorite game? In Creative Questions, we connect with others by posing interesting, fun, or even silly personality-based questions to the rest of the group. Questions have no right or wrong answer, and anyone in the group can come up with a question they’d like to ask.

 

Thursday:

10am – Relaxation Techniques: Are you interested in learning techniques to become more mindful and more relaxed? Do you have a skill or practice that helps you relax? Learn and share with others as we try out different relaxation and mindfulness techniques along with the group.

11am – Self-Empowerment: What does it mean to empower ourselves? How can we accept ourselves while also growing and changing? In this group, we will discuss these questions and more, while supporting each other in moving towards self-empowerment, self-actualization, and living authentically.

12pm – Open Discussion: This is an open topic peer support group. This group is a space for anything you’d like to bring up - whether there’s something specific you’d like to seek support around, something going on you’d like to share with the group, or you’re simply looking to chat about an interesting topic.

1pm – Living in the World: Do you love discussing and/or learning more about what’s going on in the world? In this group, we will take a look at how events in the world affect each of us on a personal level. Discussion topics can include anything from specific current events to “meta” conversations about the impact of the world on our daily lives.

2pm – Arts and Music: Try out creative "drawing prompts" and (optionally) share drawings with others, all while listening to a playlist of tunes selected by group members. All skill levels welcome!
