Small Group Descriptions

We believe small groups of people can change the world.  In a small group, you'll cultivate meaningful relationships with like-minded people.  You'll find invaluable support, and together extend peace and love to all.


Imagine the Possibilities

Mondays, 12:00 - 1:30

Currently meeting on Zoom - Enter with this link:, then enter code: 894350

Imagine the Possibilities affords the group the opportunity to access and catalyze creative imagination in our lives. Einstein asserted that imagination is ultimately greater than knowledge. Why is that so? Imagination is in the moment. It is creative, it is playful and it is in the Now! All are welcome to join us each Monday afternoon.


New people are warmly welcomed, and made to feel welcome to participate in all discussion. The group is facilitated by:

Telling Your Story


Group #1: Wednesday, 1:00 p.m.

Group #2: Friday 1:00 p.m.

Storytelling is one of our oldest human traditions and has been one of our truest gifts we can offer to each other; facilitating understanding, strengthening our connections, and fostering a deeper appreciation of our lineage.

As part of our Expansion program, our Board of Directors has graciously supported my offer to facilitate a series of sessions where we will tell our personal stories – from our earliest remembrances to current time. In this series, each member will have multiple opportunities to share their life stories.

It is a place where you can gain mutual support and a different perspective. Various topics that impact men in their daily lives are openly discussed. Competitiveness, social life, forgiveness and problem solving are just a few. Come join us in a friendly environment and explore your future potential.
