Sharing Our Lives
As women of all ages and from different walks of life, there’s much to talk about, such as who are we, and where are we in our lives? This is a time to mull over with each other the issues and questions that come up for us in daily life, getting a chance to share and hear the wisdom from within ourselves and each other. As we share our joys and concerns, we can count on mutual support and confidentiality. Each meeting will be guided by a theme for that session and set of questions designed to use as a springboard for sharing.
