What is a Living Better Group?
Live Better groups are a small, peer-to-peer support to help you live your best. Whether you want to be held accountable to your goals, need encouragement for creative projects, or simply want some general "got you back" comradery, Live Better Groups are here to help.
They will last 60-90 minutes and last for 8 weeks, with a get-together for all attendees upon completion.
- A small group (8 people) who meet together for 8 weeks
- An opportunity to be supported and to support others as we each set personal goals
- A safe place to share without fear of judgement and to grow in accountability to yourself and to each other
A commitment: if you sign up - please remember that you are committing to 8 weeks of “face-time” with your fellow participants.
Why A Living Better Group?
What you focus on over the 8 weeks is up to you. Living Better Groups help us to:
- Work on personal goals,
- Have encouragement to work on creative projects,
- Learn more about ourselves and to
- Be part of some “got your back” comradery
And… Have chance to get to know some of your fellow Sunday Assemblers!
Although participants focus on life goals, it is important to note that Living Better Groups are not therapy groups.
Time: Live Better groups will run for 8 consecutive weeks beginning Tuesday, October 25th 2016 from 7-9pm.
Location: Milwaukie, OR area. Closest bus stop is .5 miles (Bus Route 29) Thiessen & Johnson (Participants will be contacted with exact location)

Join us Sunday, November 13th in lovely Lola's Room with live music from the Sunday Assembly band, inspiring sharing from your community, and a thought-provoking lecture by Leah Maurer, Outreach Manager for Yerba Buena Farms, one of Oregon’s first recreationally licensed cannabis businesses.It's not how you Act, But how you ReactIn 2009 my life was turned upside down due to a drug war casualty in my family. From there, I had to decide whether to wallow in what seemed like a dismal situation or to keep my head up and continue to live my life in a optimistic and meaningful way. Thankfully, I chose the latter, and am still standing on 2 feet to talk about it today. Many times in life, it is not how you act, but how you react, and I am living proof.
Child care: provided in the Wonder Club 10:45am - 12:45pm. Parents, see details here.
Food Drive: Each month, we can "help often" by supporting Team Relief with a food donation. Please bring donations of unexpired, unopened, canned or packaged food items to the donation table before the Assembly begins. Food items will be used to support those in our community who are in need.
About the Speaker:
Leah Maurer is a mom to 3 young boys who lives in Portland, Oregon. She was a founding member of New Approach Oregon, the organization that ushered in Measure 91, effectively legalizing cannabis in Oregon in November of 2014. Leah also founded Oregon Moms for Cannabis Law Reform (formally Moms for YES on Measure 91), is one of the owners of TheWeedBlog.com and is the Branding and Outreach Manager for Yerba Buena Farms, one of Oregon’s first recreationally licensed cannabis businesses. Additionally, she helped launch and co-chairs Portland's Women Grow chapter. At the core, though, Leah is a cannabis legalization activist and hopes to see the prohibition of cannabis end on a federal level, and to see the cannabis conversation normalized across America.
Everyone is welcome, and our events are always free, always awesome.
