Heretics’ Haven: An AA meeting for Heretics
A heretic is defined as, “One who may choose, and who holds opinions contrary to what is generally accepted doctrine.” Accordingly, in this meeting people with spiritual or religious uncertainty, people of any belief orĀ  no belief, may come to seek the healing and support offered by AA’s 12 step recovery program without feeling pressure to conform to others beliefs.
Facilitated by: John Fahey
Dates: Mondays, 7:00 p.m.
Fee: None

Parents of Teens Group
We are a support group for parents with teens that are extra challenging to raise. We talk about what is hard for each of us to cope with. The time together is about us as parents. It’s not therapy or parent education. It’s a place to say those things that might shock/surprise others because they don’t experience it. We listen to each other with a sympathetic ear, commiserate, joke, and encourage.
Dates: 4th Sundays, 11:30 a.m.
Fee: None

Morning Hatha Yoga
Learn how to have peace within your body. This low-key yoga class is for all age groups and all skill levels. This is the original yoga, with a touch of everything in a meditative setting. This class has been a tradition at East Shore for more than 25 years!
Facilitated by: Joyce Turner
Dates: Mondays and Thursday, 9:30-10:45 a.m.
Voluntary Fee: $5 each class

Guitar Jam
Do you enjoy playing guitar? Would you like to play with others but don’t get the chance very often? Are you looking to learn new songs, chords, or techniques? Or maybe you just enjoy singing in a relaxed setting? Then Guitar Jam is for you. We meet twice a month to share songs and tunes, in any style from folk to blues to rock and even original material. You don’t even have to be a guitar player. Other instruments welcome too. Come sing or play with us or just drop in and listen.
Facilitated by: Paul Hutchinson & Chris Struble
Dates: First and third Thursdays of the month, 7:00-8:30 p.m.
Fee: None

Meditation Group: Monday Evenings
Each week we listen to a guided meditation to help us let go of our daily concerns and come back to a quieter place within ourselves. We then transition to a 25-minute silent sitting meditation where participants are free to choose the meditation method that works for them.
Dates: Monday evenings, 7:00 to 8:00 p.m.
Fee: None

Men’s Breakfast Group
In the Men’s Breakfast Group there are no CEO’s, CFO’s, officers, corporate attorneys, or accountants. There are no dues and no big shots. We just gather every two weeks at members’ homes to enjoy their selected cuisine. Our goal is good conversation, sharing, and camaraderie. We look forward to seeing you.
Facilitated by: Dave Womeldorff
Dates: Alternating Saturdays, 8:30 a.m.
Fee: Occasional hosting
