New Groups In Formation


INTERESTED IN STARTING A NEW PEER GROUP?
If you are a TTN member with an idea for a special interest group and are willing to take the lead in forming it, we will publicize the formation of your group in our newsletters, help facilitate the initial meeting and provide any other assistance you might need along the way. To create a new group, please email Livia Yanowicz at liviay@aol.com and submit a brief description of the group you wish to create, group purpose, location and prospective meeting times.


NEW TRANSITION PEER GROUPS FORMING – TTN’s signature activity.

If you’re facing change in your life, join us for this constructive, supportive, productive experience. TTN’s famous Transition Peer Groups are designed for members who want to articulate, define, think through and manage change in their lives. Join us if you wish to focus on major next-stage issues like leaving full-time work, dealing with post-employment questions and other vexing concerns like separation from professional colleagues, making new friends, risk-taking, use of time, new identity, etc. (Although participants can provide some support to members confronting a crisis, Peer Groups are not "therapy groups" and cannot substitute for professional help.)

Adopt A Sister
If you have ever wished for a female sibling who could be your best friend and confidant, than why not consider joining a small group of ladies who share this same desire? Keep in mind that it is "never" too late to have a "sister" in your life.  Contact: adoptasis@yahoo.com  (2/14)

Artists and Artisans
Artists & Artisans is a new TTN peer group of enthusiastic artistic women who have come together to share, learn, support and inspire one another. We are committed to accomplishing this vision with outings, workshops, gallery visits, and members-teaching-members their unique skills. We are looking forward to the kind of open dialogue that happens when focused, creative women come together for the purpose of exploring and sharing a new venture. Contact Victoria Weill-Hagai at vicWH@msn.com

At The Corner Of Healthy and Happy
A Midtown East group forming (30's -- 60's, time and location  to be decided by members) for women who are interested in discussing issues related to "Health and Happiness". Topics will be varied and chosen by members with other possibilities to include attending lectures/events at medical centers and various institutions in the city.  If you would like to meet other like-minded ladies who will also be supportive in time of need, please contact: healthandhap@yahoo.com (2/14)

Berkshire  Adventures
I am forming a peer group for women who summer in the Berkshires.  The first meeting would be held in the late Spring of 2014 at a restaurant in the area, such as Great Barrington or Lenox or New York if more people are available there to discuss the activities we would like to pursue over the summer.  These could include Tanglewood, Jacobs Pillow and the theater.  For the more adventurous of us, we could also plan hikes and other outdoor activities.  We would prepare a calendar with a list of activities for the Summer and make that available to the members.  If you are interested, please contact: efletchernj@gmail.com (2/14)

Explore Psychic Phenomena
Join a small group who will meet for lunch every 2 months to discuss books and personal experiences in areas such as, intuition, psychic readings, astrology, reincarnation etc. Contact ShoyaZichy, zichy@earthlink.net or call 212.755.2849. (3/13)

Holiday Group Gatherings
During a meeting of my TTN Caring Collaborative Downtown One Peer Group, it was discovered that several of us are alone on the holidays and would like to have a group that meets for lunches or dinners on holidays. The group would decide if the get-togethers would be in homes or in restaurants on the day of holidays. The group would meet on holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's Day, Easter Sunday, Passover, Memorial Day, July 4th, and Labor Day. Contact: MarjorieLevine@aol.com

Hudson Heights Peer Group
I am starting a peer group for those wonderful ladies who live in that most beautiful area of Manhattan (and yes, it is Manhattan, not the Bronx) known as the Hudson Heights area. It is that part of Manhattan where the vistas literally take your breath away.  Unfortunately, many TTN ladies do not want to travel up here so I have decided to start a peer group for those of us who are fortunate enough to live in the "north". Of course, everyone is welcome. You do not have to be a resident of this area to join us.  We, of course, particularly welcome our sisters who live in another scenically beautiful area, Riverdale. The first few meetings will be information gathering meetings where we will decide in what direction our group will go. We may want to have a book club, a dinner club, a discussion group etc. We may start as one group and morph into smaller groups or we may want to stay a single entity.  Again, you don't have to be a resident of upper Manhattan to join. Everyone is welcome but the meetings will be held in this area. If interested, please contact Ruth at spunky7ee@aol.com. (11/13)


"I Gotta Have It"
If  you are a collector of art and/or antiques(jewelry too) and have uttered these famous words, "I gotta have it", then why not share your love with other like-minded ladies?     Since NYC is the capital of the art and antique world,  there are  numerous activities available for us to "indulge" our appetites--exhibitions and auctions,  antique shows, museum & gallery events, lectures, etc.   If interested, contact dmar333@yahoo.com (1/14)
 
OY Vey & All Things Jewish
Bring your sense of humor to this informal group where members can discuss their feelings about Jewish issues--Israel, anti-Semitism, the media and world opinion, our heritage, humor and jokes, and of course, Food & Men. We can also plan to attend events of Jewish interest in the city. So, come schmooze and complain with other kindred-spirits. Contact: geltnyc@yahoo.com (1/14)
 
Superior Food
Members interested in superior food in Manhattan, at probably quite expensive prices! The idea is to meet one evening a month at a chosen high quality restaurant for excellent food and good conversation. The choice of restaurant each month will be by members,and the manner of choice will be discussed at a first meeting. Please be ready to spend a good deal of money on each meal. Perhaps between $100 to $200 per person. Those interested in this kind of peer group please contact Elaine Norman at Buckle722@aol.com.

Walk 'n Talk
Meeting the 2nd Saturday of the month at 9 AM, we walk for an hour to an hour and a half covering between 2 to 3 miles. Be sure that you are comfortable with that pace of a walk. We then break up into smaller groups for coffee and or breakfast.  Since we are are outside we are not restricted by size of the group so others are always welcome to join. For more information contact Livia Yanowicz liviay@aol.com or Diane Levine diane.levine@sothebyshomes.com.
 
Women Entrepreneurs Support Group
I’ve been working with entrepreneurs for 15 years and now that I’m 60+ I see a whole new set of challenges that I didn’t have before. In talking with others in this age category I have learned that I’m not alone. It’s not that doing business is different, but what’s happening personally is often impacting on the decisions being made. So my focus is now on the older entrepreneur, especially women. It would be my pleasure to moderate a group of TTN entrepreneurs who want to give and get support for what might be hard decisions. Some of the things I think we can discuss in this peer group are: decisions about how and when to exit the business; having enough money to retire; managing family issues that take time; adjusting work/life balance to energy and interest levels; making hard decisions that may alter the status quo; managing chronic health problems while running the business. I’d like to keep the group small so everyone will have a chance to discuss the challenges they are facing. I’m open to either a daytime or evening meeting time and suggest that 90 minutes is an appropriate amount of time. Contact marian@primestrategies.com.
