Are You ‘Recovering from Religion’?

January 14, 2017 @ 4:30 pm - 8:30 pm

You are not alone! So many people are recovering from religion that in 2009, psychologist Dr Darrel Ray founded an international self-help group for people leaving religious indoctrination. He understands the difficulties they experience because he left fundamentalism himself many years ago.

HAAM is very pleased to announce that Dr Ray will be our special guest (via Skype) at the January meeting. He’ll be talking about his organization, Recovering from Religion – what it’s about, why it’s necessary, and what the group does. Dr Ray’s insights as both a clinical psychologist and fellow recoveree will be invaluable to anyone who still has ‘baggage’ left over from their religious upbringing. Don’t miss this!


We will begin with our meet-and-greet time at 4:30 PM in order to accommodate our AGM at 5:00. Dinner will follow at 6:00, and then our regular meeting and speaker at 6:45. Please join us for the AGM – we need your support and input as we plan for the coming year!

Warm Winter Clothing Drive!

Due to the unprecedented snowfall and recent cold snap, we have decided to collect donations of warm winter clothing at our January meeting. Please bring your clean, gently used winter clothing, accessories, and outerwear and one of our executive will deliver it to a local charity for those who need it. Thanks!
