Going through a big change?

The Nearness is a program that helps small groups of people heal and build deep connections around life transitions – divorce, loss, mid-life, a diagnosis.

You’ll be matched into a small group and meet in a series of six Zoom calls. You’ll walk through powerful conversation starters, contemplative practices, and embodied exercises that have been curated by experts in psychology, spirituality, and connection.

How it Works

Sometimes deep, meaningful conversations need a little bit of support.

We’ve created a set of tools and practices to help people connect more deeply with themselves and one another. Each 6-week program takes a small group through a series of powerful conversations with just enough structure to make space for connection to bloom.

Each week, a written discussion and activity guide is sent to the group. Participants take turns leading the group, keeping time so that everyone has time to speak and contribute.
