New LifeRing Candlelight Meeting In Lewisham, London, UK!

 

 

 

candlelight

 

We are very pleased to announce that Lee C., meetings convenor/starter extraordinaire, has announced there will be a new meeting beginning this Friday evening in the London Borough of Lewisham! And to add a new dimension to the standard “How Was Your Week?” (HWYW) format, this meeting will also be candlelit.

For those of you who’ve never attended a candlelight meeting and aren’t sure what that means, my understanding of the idea of the candlelight* is to help create a calming, intimate, and safe space for participants to share more openly than perhaps they would in a more typically brightly lit atmosphere. However, if you have any questions or would like more information, please feel free to contact Lee anytime – see the contact information below.

Please also feel free to check out our LifeRing London’s Facebook page here, as well as Lee’s LifeRing London blog page here.

Here’s the meeting info.:

 

When: Fridays at 7:15 P.M.

Where: Lochaber Hall, Manor Lane Terrace, Lewisham, London SE13 5QL

Convenor: Lee C.

Contact Information: E-mail: lifering.london.uk@gmail.com

 

We wish Lee and all new meeting members the very best!

 

* And Now For a Moment of Fairness in Reporting: By “my understanding”, I mean me, Bobbi C.. I’ve never attended a candlelight meeting myself, so my interpretation – informed by other people who have attended such a meeting – may not be accurate. In other words, don’t take it from me – please contact Lee! 🙂
