February at the LiLi Centre

Incredibly the first month of 2020 has come and gone, the centre continues to be as busy as ever and offering ever more events.

Starts 01. Feb – Saturday Information Coffee Morning

Starting in February, the LiLi Centre will be hosting a second weekly Information Coffee Morning on Saturdays from 10:00 – 12:00. Do you have questions about living in the canton of Lucerne? Or are you just looking for someone who knows what it feels like to be an international resident? A member of the team will be on hand to answer any questions you might have over a cup of tea or coffee. In addition to this they will also offer a German Translation Service – so if you have an official document you need translating or would like help drafting a letter in German be sure to bring it with you. 

5. / 19. Feb – Newly Single Support Group

Have you recently gone through a split-up? Are you struggling to understand the administrative requirements now that you are single? Would you like to meet people going through something similar? Then join Newly Single Life Coach Renate Kranenburg as we share our experiences and learn from one another. The group will meet every second Wednesday of the month from 19.30 to 21.30.  You can sign up here.

We are planning on offering Intensive German Course, run over 10 weeks these 20 x 1.5 hours sessions will help you fast track your knowledge. The classes will be kept intentionally small (4 to 8 participants) and German teacher Letizia Meier will be using level appropriate material to help you reach your goal.

Please fill out the following doodle (tick as many times that would work for you) and the level your want to learn giving your name and email address so we can reach out to you as soon as we have dates chosen. Fill out the Survey

We are also looking at starting an addiction recovery support group led by Karen Kurzmeyer.

Recovery Sharing Circle for Women provides a supportive, non-judgemental space and community where women can come together and connect in seeking a healthier lifestyle.

This new facilitated group is for women who currently live a life of sobriety or are considering an alcohol free lifestyle and have a common desire to explore and learn, listen more deeply to themselves and others, share experiences and resources as well as have the opportunity to find and use their voice.

This is a safe haven where you will feel seen, heard and valued.

If you are interested please fill out the following survey so we may pick a time/day that helps a maximum number of people.
