Fire Survivor Support Group for Women in San Diego

Fire Survivor Support Group for Women
Restoring Our Balance and Sense of Safety after Loss

Open to women who have lost their homes in the recent wildfires.
Within a safe and supportive group of women, recover a sense of self and gather practical and emotional resources designed to nurture you through this important work of rebuilding your life.

Wednesday Evenings
beginning November 7, 2007

Pamela Underwood Studio in Poway
Pamela lost her homes/studio to two fires; the Cedar Fire of 2003 being the most recent.

Join a distinct community of women who have survived the San Diego County Firestorms and now must navigate the aftermath. During this 2 hour group we will devote time to discussion, resource sharing and networking.
We will focus on taking our thoughts, feelings and concerns into the realm of art making, poetry, movement and drumming. These arts promise to ground us in the here and now even while walking through sorrow and grief, anger and fear. In this group we will begin to trust the arts to bring insight and change.

No art experience is necessary!

Please Call Pamela to Register: 619-857-8820
You may join the group on any Wednesday….just call first!
Located off of Hwy 67and Mina de Oro
