About Our Destiny

Meetings are normally held on the second and fourth Wednesday of the month from 10:00am - 11:30am either at the Richland Library or the Richland Community Center depending on availability.  Check on here the day before the meeting to confirm location. Bring a friend and come as you are! Refreshments provided, (sorry no childcare available).



  • 1 The first half of the program gives time for individuals to identify their illness and the impact it has had on their daily lives.
  • 2 The second half of the meeting is dedicated to discussing ways in which we can improve the quality of our lives by exchanging information on products or techniques that you have found to be helpful in reducing pain and discomfort.
