Are you interested in exploring your spiritual side, and sharing your experiences with other gay men? So are we! We currently facilitate discussion groups at the LGBT Center in San Diego as well as in our home, and have also run retreats for gay men in Southern California, Arizona and New York. Our discussion groups and retreats attract gay men that are interested in spirituality from a broad perspective, investigating the natural laws of nature and how it impacts their lives. If you find yourself becoming more spiritual, but not necessarily more religious, come to one of our meetings at the LGBT Center and/or sign up for an upcoming retreat. In addition to discussion, you will have an opportunity to meet other gay men of like mind.
Our discussion groups include men of all ages and walks of life. Topics vary and have included subjects such as the evolution of consciousness, the nature of free will, the power of thought, karma and reincarnation. The focus is personal experience and sharing, not promoting any particular philosophy or approach. Our facilitation style encourages speaking from the heart, rather than the intellect.
Our retreats include discussion, as well as individual and small group activities, and typically run for 3 or 4 days. Following is a list of some of our retreats over the past ten years:Journey into Spirit – Changing Times & Changing Consciousness, The Spiritual Impact of the Subconscious in Our Lives, Alchemy of Personal Transformation,Discovering New Identity in Life’s Transitions,andExploring the Path to Higher Consciousness.
