What we're about

Join a different kind of conversation – one that welcomes every perspective in a search for the deeper spiritual truths that unite us. All are welcome regardless of background or belief. There are no group membership dues or fees and donations will not be accepted.

About us:

Inspired by similar meetup groups across the country, we have started our own group here in San Antonio as an act of service to our community with the goal of creating (with your help!) a space for deeper conversation, connection, reflection, and action. Individuals of all ages, backgrounds, and beliefs gather together each week to explore uplifting (and sometimes challenging) topics and to engage respectfully and civilly in elevated conversations, inquiry, consultation, and mutual learning. Using short selections from the Bahá'í teachings as a starting point, we hope to grow together and learn from one another as we seek to build bridges of unity and respect for all humanity.

Please note: attendees under the age of 18 must have a guardian with them.

Free Online Event | What’s Your Spiritual Footprint?

Online event

Some people believe that as long as we’re not hurting anyone else, that we can do as we like. But is it enough to simply “do no harm”? Or do we need to actively seek to “do good”?

What about when it comes to our spiritual lives? Is our spirituality limited to our own personal growth and progress, or can we live in a way that our beliefs and actions make a positive impact on the world around us?
When we think about ideas like sustainability and carbon footprints, we are thinking about the impact of our lives on our material environment. But what about our spiritual environment? Are we considering the spiritual footprints we are leaving behind? What would it look like to live conscious of the lasting impact of our choices and our spirituality on not just the world around us, but on future generations as well?

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’í Teachings on the lasting impact we each have on our communities. Join us for a lively discussion as we explore how we can each contribute to the spiritual growth of the world around us, now and for generations to come.

Free Online Event | Spirituality in a Time of Great Divide

Online event

What would happen if we could look past our differences as people and instead focus on the inherent commonality we all share as spiritual beings part of one humankind?

The world around us seems focused on amplifying the existing fractures in society, highlighting messages of division and conflict over those of peace and unity. So in this environment, how can we as individuals make a difference? Can spirituality help us foster that peace and unity? How can we stop talking over each other and start listening to those we disagree with? How can we create unified and inclusive communities that can work for the benefit of us all?

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’í Teachings on how we as individuals can make a difference in a divided world. Join us for a lively discussion as we explore the role of spirituality in healing the divisions present in our society and working for the progress of all.

Free Online Event | Is Love Something You DO?

Online event

We all know about love in our personal relationships, that it’s not just something you think or even say but that it’s something you show by putting what you’re feeling into practice. But what happens when we think about love in a wider context? How do we embrace loving those beyond our existing circles? What about all of humanity? Is it enough to simply feel love for all mankind, or do we also have to seek out ways to put that into practice? This can seem like a daunting task, but even coming together with people of different backgrounds and beliefs and exploring these ideas together in an open and respectful setting can help contribute to creating the world we want to see!

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 perspectives offered by the Bahá’í Teachings on the power of love in action. Join us for a lively discussion as we explore how developing that practice in ourselves and in others can help create the change we want to see in the world.

“Do not be content with showing friendship in words alone, let your heart burn with loving kindness for all who may cross your path.” – Bahá’í Teachings

Free Online Event | Finding Our Spiritual Purpose

Online event

Can a deeper sense of spirituality help us answer the question “why am I here”?

At some point in our lives we have all asked ourselves if there is a meaning to this life. Writers, philosophers, scientists, and almost all other disciplines in existence are trying to answer these two fundamental questions: who am I? And why am I here? As individuals, we try to find the answers in our jobs, in our family, in our relationships, etc. – but do we each have a greater purpose beyond our day to day lives? How can we orient ourselves to achieving our true purpose as individuals and as communities? And is it possible to discover that purpose in a vacuum, or do we need to take ourselves out of isolation?

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’í Teachings on the role of spirituality in finding our true purpose. Join us for a lively discussion as we explore how we can create the conditions in our communities so that every individual can achieve that purpose as we walk together on a path of service.

“The whole duty of man in this Day is to attain that share of the flood of grace which God poureth forth for him.” – Bahá’í Teachings
