Small Groups


Mending the Soul (Women’s Group)

This Mending the Soul group is for women and specifically designed to help you work through all the abuses in your story – from childhood to any current relationships, personal and professional. These abuses may include spiritual, sexual, physical, emotional/mental, and/or verbal. So many of our stories contain overt abuse, where it is clear and obvious. However, a majority of us have covert abuse, that is harder to define. This group will help you process both types. Our stories are all our own and it is unfair to compare; however, a group like this helps us understand our own stories and brings healing in ways that individual work cannot provide.

When: Thursday evenings, 6:00pm -7:30pm, April 7th – June 9th (10 meetings)
Where: Meetings will be held at the Living Wholehearted offices in Tualatin
