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?

    LAS VEGAS - February 14

    Let's Gather on Valentine's Day

    Holidays can be hard ... and Valentine's Day can be one of the hardest. So it's a perfect day for us to add an extra February gathering.

    We'll start with lunch when the Divine Cafe opens at 11am and then head out for a stroll through the gardens. There are benches and places to sit along the way if we just want to pause for a chat. If you can only get away during your lunch hour, that's ok. RSVP and I'll share my cell so you can text me when you arrive and I'll help you find us.

    We meet at the Divine Cafe at the Springs Preserve on the last Wednesday of each month, but if this will be your first visit just take the stairs or elevator from the lower level parking lot up to the 2nd floor. There is no fee to walk through the gardens.
