Connect with Spirit
and Your Soul
Deep within us, we hunger for connection with others and All That Is Divine. This weekly online sharing circle -- each month based on a different spiritual theme -- provides a place for exploration and reflection.
Each week, participants receive a Soul Matters packet based on a theme that's designed to foster individual exploration and spiritual discernment.
We then meet for 90 minutes on a weekly basis (via Zoom) to discuss that theme with each other. (To see a sample Soul Matters packet, please email me at email@example.com and there is no obligation to participate by requesting the packet.) Attend each week or as often as you'd like.
Starting in June 2020, we will have a topic of the month and will go deeper as the month progresses. Each week will focus on one of the four dimensions of Soul Matters in practice:
Week 1: Soul Matters -- Ourselves
Week 2: Soul Matters -- At Home
Week 3: Soul Matters -- In Our Community
Week 4: Soul Matters -- Telling Soul Stories
Upcoming Soul Matters Themes are:
June 2020 Thresholds
July 2020 Compassion
The Soul Matters booklets are based on material developed for use by Unitarian Universalist faith communities. The themes have been modified for use in my program to be universal to all people. My Soul Matters group is a nondenominational, spiritual reflection group.
How to Participate
During the days leading up to our meeting, try to find the one question that "hooks you" from that packet -- the question that speaks to you and challenges you personally.
You're then asked to live with -- or “walk with” -- that question for a few weeks and then come to the meeting, not with an answer to all of the questions in the packet, but with a story about how your one, personally chosen question led you to a deeper, personal insight. There's a lot of material in the packet, so throughout the month we will explore the different dimensions of that month's topic.
Because the Divine is present in nature, I ask you to bring some aspect of the outdoors into each meeting to contribute to our Altar of Presence -- for example, this could be a feather you found on a walk, or a fresh flower, or a photograph of the outdoors. This is a small way I hope to incorporate the gifts of the Divine into our group.
