We Are In This Together 

We are committed to your safety and well-being. Staying connected virtually is developing into a new norm for many of us. It is still possible to continue the journey to wellness emotionally, mentally and spiritually as we connect virtually. 

With this in mind, a virtual series of group meetings and social events make it easier to stay connected and alleviates ongoing transportation challenges. Yes!
