Spiritual Weight Loss

Spiritual Weight Loss is a support group following the 21 lessons of Marianne Williamson’s book “Spiritual Weight Loss.”  All are welcome. We meet every Saturday morning  from 9:30 – 11 a.m.

Looking for a spiritual support group to develop a new relationship with food, your body, yourself and with God so excess weight is no longer an issue?

Join us for discussion, reading, writing, meditations and a supportive environment where we will do healing work together using guidelines from Marianne Williamson’s book, A Course in Weight Loss: 21 Spiritual Lessons for Surrendering Your Weight Forever.

To maintain the confidentiality of the group, prospective members, please contact Deborah Jackson at her email.
