Ongoing Monthly Mini-Cloups

As humans, we are wired to need one another. We are wired for community. But not just any community will do. Here at Cardigan Academy, building a community of emotionally-safe people is *very* important to us. As part of our mission, we offer monthly mini-cloups!

* Mix & match
* Choose the ones that are the best fit for you!
* The more you choose, the more you save


Virtual, and ongoing, these mini-cloups (part class/part support group) meet monthly to cover different topics while offering support, education, and - most importantly - community. Think of it like a gym membership for your emotional health. Kind of like A.A., but for other areas of life. You’ll find topics, books, guest speakers, conversation, warmth, fun, love, laughter, and more! Register here!

Life Hacks

So many of us struggle with keeping life smooth and organized in this hectic world, especially if we are neurodivergent in some way (ADHD, Autism, etc.) or even if we just suspect we are. And, regardless, it’s too much to go at alone. Here we will share tips, tricks, strategies, ideas, resources, and more and we support one another in getting life more on track for our sanity! 2nd Tuesday of each month 7 - 8 pm ET


Emotional Labor. Friendships. Mental Load. Pay disparity. Family. Glass ceilings. The patriarchy. Relationships. Fulfillment. Perimenopause/Menopause. Decision making. Sexuality. Gender Gap. Aging. Stability. Reproductive freedoms. Life is challenging and women especially face unique challenges. We will hold space for one another and learn and grow together.
*Please join us if you identify as a woman, non-binary, or femme in any way that is important to you 3rd Wednesday of each month 8 - 9 pm ET

Religious Trauma

This unique group will discuss the realities of religious trauma that come from a faith transition or the loss of a belief system altogether. We will discuss familiar religious concepts such as forgiveness and silver linings (spiritual bypass) and their impact on our mental health. Leaving a religion or belief system can feel like a very tumultuous and isolating experience that can be both terrifying and empowering at the same time. For many, it can mean a loss of relationships and community. Come meet with others going through similar feelings and experiences, and be supported through this very real and challenging, but hopefully empowering, change. 1st Sunday of each month 8 - 9 pm ET

Healing from Your Toxic Childhood

Growing up with self-absorbed, abusive, or neglectful parents can have a lifelong, negative effect on us, and affect us well into adulthood. This monthly cloup is specifically for people who are healing from a toxic childhood. We’ll discuss loads of topics, including attachment styles, boundaries, strategies, trauma bonds, family dynamics, and breaking unhealthy cycles. Spend time with others who get it (which is a big deal!) - vent, share, listen, and learn together as we heal our inner child through this important work. 1st Sunday of each month 7 - 8 pm ET

Navigating Friendships & Relationships

Relationships are so central to our lives. There are so many resources available for careers and even hobbies, but what of our friendships and relationships? The ups and downs of relationships are an enormous part of our lives. Together, we will go over communication strategies and resources, rooted in studies, to help relationships be happy and healthy. 3rd Sunday of each month 7 - 8 pm ET


Choosing to home educate our children is exciting and a bit overwhelming. Doing it in isolation? Madness! Meet regularly with other homeschool families to share ideas and resources, discuss what works and what doesn’t work, and get encouragement and tips from those who are, and have been, in the homeschool trenches. You don’t have to feel alone and do guesswork. Bring your questions, concerns, frustrations and joys. Come share community with us! 2nd Sunday of each month 8 - 9 pm ET

Book Club

Are you always wanting to read those books on mental health, boundaries, trauma, and other topics, but instead they sit in a pile? Or perhaps you do read them but find yourself wishing you could discuss them with others? This monthly book club will help with all of that, as you build community with emotionally-safe people who are also doing this work alongside you. Join us whether you've read the book or not! 1st Tuesday of each month 7 - 8 pm ET

Productivity and Accountability

(Co-Work Sessions)
If you struggle to get things done, whether it’s making a phone call, developing a home management plan, cleaning out the garage, or any other task that’s been hanging over your head, this cloup is the perfect way to tackle all that with warmth, accountability, and support. We will have co-work sessions, shadow partners, and an ongoing, shared document where we help one another get stuff done! Weekly Tuesdays 10 am - 12 pm ET

Bonus: Fun with Devany & Stacy (FREE when you sign up for 4 or more mini-cloups)

Social time, games, movies, power point “parties” (We’re nerds!), coffee hour, happy hour . . . basically, come hang out and have fun with us every month in the most laid-back of all cloups. Play, fun, and laughter are essential to our well-being, and here we will enjoy all of that as we build emotionally-safe community together. 3rd Friday of each month 7 pm ET
