Soaring 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?

Dine and Enjoy Dance Performance in San Francisco
We will gather and eat at Max’s Opera Cafe first, enjoy dinner and conversation together and then walk a short distance to see a fabulous dance Company, called Lines Ballet. It is a contemporary Ballet Company. If you have never seen this company you are in for a treat.
Please buy tickets for Lines through Eventbrite. Tickets are general admission so we will be able to sit together. Tickets are $25 each. Buy tickets soon if you want to join us, as they may sell out quickly.
Please RSVP for the dinner so I know how many people for the dinner reservation. https://www.maxsoperasf.com/

Let's Play Games
The Uncommons takes fun seriously
There are game stores and there are coffee shops. They have combined the two, with a twist. Hence, a board game cafe. We will have a private room for our gathering with plenty of food and drink options. Take a look the menu (http://www.uncommonsnyc.com/menu/)!
The basic concept isn’t brand new- we can play a quick game of Scrabble while relaxing and enjoying a latte. But with The Uncommons, they push further, offering a home for tabletop games of all sorts. They are one of the largest library of games (http://www.uncommonsnyc.com/product-category/games/)on the East Coast.
Check out the pictures. (http://www.uncommonsnyc.com/our-gallery-masonry/)
The cost for this meet up is $20. This include gaming fees and our private room fee. The cost does not include food and/or beverages.
There is a mandatory number of participants needed to ensure this cost. Therefore, members will be allowed to bring guests to this event.
This is an opportunity for our group to engage in fun in a private space. So please bring your competitive edge to enjoy your favourite game or your willingness to try a new game of the 21st century.
Serious RSVPs are needed! If you RSVP and cannot attend, please be considerate and change your RSVP.
Price may be adjusted based on number of attendees
Join us for an early evening of food, drinks and fun!
