Spiritual Teachers and Guides

As a spiritual seeker, how important is it to find a teacher or guru to provide guidance along the path? Can one be a "light unto oneself", or is some form of outside help essential? How does one recognize a genuine teacher, and what form might they take? Is personal contact necessary, or is it sufficient to study the teacher's writings? And is it possible to receive guidance on a non-physical level?

In this group discussion, we will consider these questions and any others which may arise in connection with spiritual teachers in general.

      Hi Valerie - there is a public car park right next to the venue which charges £1 for evening parking. Parking is free in the driveway of the Quaker Meeting House if you are early enough to find a space! You may have noticed there is a link to Google Maps next to the venue details above if you are unsure how to find us. Feel free to email me for directions if you need them:-)

    Hi all .. I have just joined your group so really excited about coming along and meeting everyone. There is so much is unknown in our small world and lives, so keen to discuss with you all, and try to get an insight into a bit of it! See you there I hope (only thing that might mean I cannot go is that I am off to a week long trade show a couple of days later .. so if I am not ready, I may have to join you all next time)! Thanks Valerie :-)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
