----------------------------------------------------------------------Separation Support Meetings

Like everyone else, we are finding new ways to connect. Until further notice, all NB meetings will be online. Our monthly Dinner & Movie Nights will resume when it is safe to gather.

An online meeting will never be the same as an in-person one. We don’t pretend that it is. But it is better than nothing, and we are exceedingly grateful to have this option to keep our services alive when so many other organizations must cancel, postpone or close entirely.

There are, in fact, several advantages to online discussions:

  • You only have to look presentable from the neck up.

  • You don’t have to drive anywhere. The gas and travel time you save can be spent shopping online or bingeing on Netflix.

  • You can attend any of them, regardless of where you live.

  • We can offer more of them because we don’t need physical locations.

  • We can accommodate as few or as many participants as want to come.

Thank you for your flexibility and willingness to embrace change. We understand that this is
hard. NB members have always been courageous, resilient and quick to show compassion toward others. This is a chance to do that in a different way. We can do this—together.


COPING WITH ALONENESS: Are you lonely, lonesome or alone? Learn how others cope & conquer!

OPPOSITE SEX FRIENDS: Many of us never have one until we separate. What makes these relationships unique? How do we establish & maintain them?

OPEN DISCUSSION: Bring the issues most on your mind. Get feedback & support for current challenges, & learn by listening to others what lies ahead. If you’re in a good place, celebrate your progress, & share your wisdom as a beacon to those just beginning their journey.
