Online Programs

Well on the Web is an extension of the programs available in the Wellspring Centres across the country, enabling those who live far from a physical centres, or those not well enough to leave their homes, with access to Wellspring’s special brand of care and support.

Book Discussion Group

The Wellspring Book Discussion Group meets once a month. The group has come up with a list of books for us to read and discuss, a mixture of fiction and nonfiction.

In lieu of face-to-face meetings, we will use Zoom video meetings. In preparation for the discussion, the host emails a few discussion questions and perhaps a link to a relevant video clip, such as an interview with the author of the book to be discussed.
