Support TTN

Transition Peer Groups

Transition Peer Groups (TPGs) (TPGs) are small groups who meet to discuss topics from career transitions to changing family relationships to the benefits and challenges of aging. Each group selects its own topics and shares group facilitation and guidance. TTN provides resources to help these groups get started and flourish. There is always an opportunity for a formation of new peer groups in a different geographic location and/ or around specific topics. If you are interested in joining or starting a TPG, please contact Barbara O'Sullivan at

TRANSITION PEER GROUP - Life Animated - submitted by Sylvia Moen

The Life Animated peer group met in May to discuss the role books/movies/tv shows play in your life? Which ones do you like? The discussion was led by Terri. 

The discussion began with members talking generally about the kinds of media they consumed. Some didn't watch television or movies and primarily read books. Book genres mentioned included fantasy, novels, history, non-fiction. One member liked to watch older films but not current movies. Another said she liked television because you could do other things while watching it. Some of us were in book clubs or movie clubs where we could share our thoughts with others. 

Some films were important at certain times in our lives, such as romantic movies like Dr. Zhivago while in college. We talked about how movies on TV took on more of an "event" quality when we were growing up due to being aired live, when you either saw them or missed them. One example was "The Wizard of Oz". 

Next meeting:
June 13, 10:15, Highland Library. The topic is "Listening", led by Julie. 

Please contact Eleni Skevas at if you are interested in joining this group.

TRANSITION PEER GROUP - Living with Purpose - submitted by Barbara O'Sullivan

The Living with Purpose Peer Group will get together on Thursday, June 27, for a potluck picnic to celebrate summer. We will use the opportunity as a way to learn more about each other and deepen our friendships. We will have great conversation and good food while enjoying the beautiful outdoors.  
Our May meeting focused on listening. We shared what we learned from intentionally listening to others, to ourselves as well as to our surroundings.  
New members are always welcomed. For more information, please contact Barbara O'Sullivan at
