Regional Social Events

Regional GroupsSoaring 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 locations of our regional groups are determined by the availability of a volunteer willing to head the program in any given area. To determine if there is a Soaring Spirits Regional Social Group meeting near you, just enter your zip or postal code below. Interested in joining our Regional Social Leader team?

    The SHACK (Movie) and Lunch

    The Shack film takes us on a father’s uplifting spiritual journey. After suffering a family tragedy, Mack Phillips [Sam Worthington] spirals into a deep depression causing him to question his innermost beliefs. Facing a crisis of faith, he receives a mysterious letter urging him to an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Despite his doubts, Mack journeys to the shack and encounters an enigmatic trio of strangers led by a woman named Papa [Octavia Spencer]. Through this meeting, Mack finds important truths that will transform his understanding of his tragedy and change his life forever.

    Let's meet at 12:45pm.  I will have a Soaring Spirits International Sign while waiting for everyone at the front entrance.  This theater has assigned seating, so meeting early will guarantee our seating together.  So everyone please arrive on time! We will purchase our tickets and purchase refreshments before entering the theater.  Ticket costs are $15.50.
    After the movie we will head to Skylight Diner (402 W. 34th Street). This will be a larger gathering than usual so I will be organizing small groups so that everyone can reflect on a more personable level.  Smaller groups will allow talk about the movie without the pressure of speaking in a large group.  Participating in small groups will be a great opportunity for you to meet new members as well as returning members.
