You may be a highly successful, educated, and confident person, but have you often wondered if there might be something deeper to life than what you've found so far?
Are you deeply curious about existence?
Are you willing to follow the path towards truth - wherever it might lead you?
Do you like serious, authentic inquiry and conversation among bright, curious people?
If you answered yes to some of the foregoing questions, then you might like what this group is about.
Is this group 'spiritual'? Not necessarily. You can have a spiritual orientation or not - it doesn't matter.
Are we into 'woo', mystical beliefs, candles, crystals and faith? No, we are not.
They fill our subjective worlds far more than we realize. But, every time we manage see through an illusion, we come just a bit closer to the raw truth that lies behind all of our illusions.
An insight is what we often call the experience of seeing through an illusion. It is, if you will, the other side of an illusion.
In a typical meeting in this group, we will begin with a short introductory discussion of the evening's topic. This simply serves to get us focused on the topic. This could run from five minutes to 15; but never more.
Thereafter, either a free-form discussion will begin among the group or a round-robin will ensue in which we each speak in turn upon the night's topic.
We will seldom stay cleanly on one topic. Many of the topics we will discuss easily, and not inappropriately, merge one into each other. So, while we may begin on one topic, before we're done we many have touched on many.
Discussions on these matters will be done in a friendly and non-judgmental setting, and always focusing on the individual, their own life and how the current subject matter applies to them rather than searching for an elusive academic or final truth.
The group is open to those interested in the intellectual and emotional understandings we can gain into our lives and our existence through authentic discussions.
If you find these ideas interesting, we hope you will come along and join us.
*Note* that when we gather at the Belgian Beer Bar, they do not charge us for the space we meet in. So, it is requested that you buy something from the Belgian when you come along to a meeting. This could be beer, a soft drink, or a food item. Doing so is a way of thanking them for the use of their space.
