Our Programs


An opportunity for people to meet in a small group, examine a particular aspect of life and explore and practice self-reflection. It is a structured meeting, including reflection and self-expression in a nonjudgmental, confidential atmosphere. It is a time of shared reflection and nurturing. The group meets weekly with Leader Emeritus Arthur Dobrin.
