The Journey Continues…


Third Saturday Alumni Gatherings

TACHERIA – Co-hosted by Tacheria Alums, Janet Tolman and Ken Vordran. These events feature gifted alumni speakers and leaders who help to illuminate some aspect of spiritual companionship and offer new and interesting perspectives. At the current time, we hold these via Zoom. Watch your email for monthly announcement of topics and activities.

WISDOM’S WAY – Hosted via Zoom by Wisdom’s Way Alum, Sue Larson, third Saturdays from September to May from 9:30 – 11:00 AM. Our alumni are interested in connecting in Circle rather than pursuing workshop-type learning opportunities at this time. A Zoom link for the gathering will be sent the week of the meeting.
