Spirit Group: Supporting Spiritual Growth and Awakening
At a certain point, we become interested in deepening our spiritual lives. We hear the call from our deeper selves, our True Self, and we decide to dive in. I coach many people on their spiritual lives individually, but there is always something especially rich about working with a group. In this group, you will learn meditations and other practices to accelerate your spiritual unfolding. And you’ll be invited to share your path with others in sacred space. People tell me that they gain from their shares, the feedback they receive, and by listening to the shares of the other group members. It’s a great way to catalyze your ongoing awakening. Contact me for more information. $20 donation suggested/session.
Dates and location, TBA.
There is an energy about us, something we intuitively sense all the time but seldom stop to explore. In this workshop, you will explore the felt-experience of being with others in groups and pairs. We’ll explore the extraordinary potential for experiencing the Divine in each other through dialogue, mindful relating, and contemplative group exercises. I’m sure that you are going to love discovering new ways to make relationships of all kinds part of your spiritual path. Some experience with silent, contemplative prayer and/or meditation is required. Please wear loose, comfortable clothing. Contact me today for more information.

In this group, you will learn meditations and other practices to accelerate your spiritual unfolding. And you’ll be invited to share your path with others in sacred space.
