Group Offerings for Spring 2014

Between the Lines (LGBTQ Group)

However you identify, this group will help you discover or clarify how you’re living your identity and how you can move towards living it the way you want to. This group will be a safe, positive, supportive group of peers meeting each week to explore and discuss the experiences, ideas, challenges, and joys of being LGBTQ. Through authentically engaging with others on similar paths, you will gain insight into your own way of being and learn more about how you want to grow and develop as an LGBTQ person.  Together we will challenge each other to think differently, grow in new ways, and become even more ourselves. Please contact Donn Marshall or Khalila Fordham for more information, date and time.
