It's a new year and a new day full of challenges and opportunities and I am creating this new Meetup group with some of my friends in the hope of expanding our circle of friends by hosting gatherings of diverse groups of people interested in meeting up for deeper and more meaningful conversations about spiritual topics. Each week we will choose a different topic or theme to investigate starting out our exploration using short selections from the Baha'i spiritual teachings. We aim to host events that uplift, inspire and give expression to the human spirit. We welcome a diverse community from all backgrounds and create spaces for community members of all ages that facilitate elevated conversation, inquiry, consultation and learning. As we grow together and learn from one another we hope to build bridges of unity and respect for all humanity.
Finding a moment to truly disconnect from the pressures around us and focus our minds seems more and more out of reach in today’s society. So how can we find the quiet in the midst of the chaos surrounding us and learn to reconnect with our spiritual selves? And why do we need to?
Practices in faith traditions of prayer and meditation to the rising trend of mindfulness confirm that the sea of chaos we are immersed in only increases the desire for our souls to find peace. So what are we limiting when we don’t create the conditions to allow for that peace? What would society look like if we were able to connect spiritually with ourselves and with those around us?
Come join a different kind of conversation – one that welcomes every perspective in a search for the truths that unite us all – as we discuss the spiritual perspective offered by the Bahá’i Teachings on how we can find true, inner peace. Join us for a lively discussion as we explore how spiritually reconnecting refreshes us as individuals and allows us to better serve those around us as we work with each other to bring together a unified global community.
