Local Groups

A Global Community Made Up of Local Support Networks

The Peak Living Network is a global community made up of local support networks. Each local group is dedicated to offering mutual support to its participants through:

    * Open support meetings
    * Splitting time (doing one-on-one support sessions in person or on the phone)
    * Any other healing activities the local PLN group chooses to offer

The only requirements that you need to meet to call your group a PLN group are:

    * Agree to follow the PLN “Statement of Principles
    * Not charge or barter for any activities; all local PLN activities need to be free
    * Ensure that PLN gatherings are devoted to structured sharing of support and emotional healing

Meetings that are for socializing, business networking, fundraising, or any purpose other than the stated one are not PLN gatherings, and your local PLN contact list, Facebook page, etc., may not be used to publicize them.


NOTE: It’s fine to ask for voluntary donations to offset the costs of renting space to hold gatherings, but no one is to make any money.

How To Start a Local PLN Network

Here are some steps you can take to get a network going in your area:

(1) Encourage people that you know and respect to read the material on this website.

(2) Hand people printed copies of materials from this website, especially “What is the Peak Living Network” and the “Peak Living Network Statement of Principles.”

(3) Find one or more people who are interested in splitting time with you, and start doing so on a regular basis (see “How to Split Time”).

(4) Offer an open support group once a week — or once a month, or whatever is realistic for your schedule (see “Open Meetings”)

(5) Join one of our periodic free conference calls for people who want to start a local network or want assistance with an existing one.  Send an email to peaklivingnetwork@juno.com to request information about the time and dial-in information for the next conference call. These calls are devoted to thinking together and supporting each other’s local efforts.
