Connect with Spirit
and Your Soul
Deep within us, we hunger for connection with others and All That Is Divine. This weeklyonline sharing circle -- each based on a different spiritual theme -- provides a place for exploration and reflection.
Each week, participants receive a Soul Matters packet based on a different 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and there is no obligation to participate by requesting the packet.) Attend each week or as often as you'd like.

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 our two sessions will let us go a little deeper than just one session.
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.
