Note: During the Covid 19 crisis, this group is meeting weekly online, every Thursday 1-2:30 PM.  You can go to our website, listed below, to get details.  Note that during this time the group is meeting under the charter of Pacific Rim Hearing Voices, which is a bit different than that of HVN-USA - information about that is also linked to on the website.

Once in person meetings are again safe, we will resume meeting the first and third Thursday of every month, 1- 2:30 PM, at the Lane Independent Living Alliance (LILA), 20 E. 13th Ave., Eugene.

Here's the description of the focus of the group;

This group is a safe, accepting, peer-led place to share and explore experiences such as hearing voices, having visions, and unusual or extreme states of consciousness.

  •  What does it mean to have these experiences?
  •  Are they best thought of as illness, or as a reaction to trauma, or as spiritual, or as a possibly valuable part of mental diversity?
  •  What are the most helpful ways of coping with and of solving the problems they sometimes cause?
  •  Is it possible to transform one's relationship to the experiences so that life can go on as well or better than before the experiences began?


This group is open to everyone who hears voices, sees visions, experiences extreme states and/or has unusual beliefs, whether or not a person has a mental health diagnosis or takes medication.  The group aims to be inclusive, non-judgmental, pro-treatment choice and pro-diversity.


Jointly sponsored by NAMI Lane County, Lane Independent Living Alliance, and Eugene/Springfield Hearing Voices
