What we're about
A Spiritual Self-Help Group
The Pittsburgh Self Inquiry Group offers a friendly environment where people seeking to discover a true understanding of themselves and their place in the cosmos can work together.
We meet the first and third Wednesday year-round, 7-9pm at the Friend's Meeting House, 4836 Ellsworth Ave, PGH 15213 -ithin walking distance of both Pitt and CMU's campuses.
We encourage individual spiritual paths and practices while exploring the teachings of people throughout history who have claimed successful discovery of the answers to the big questions in life, such as "Who am I?", “Does life have a purpose?” and “Is there a way to find out?” Our “working group” of seekers forms the matrix where each individual's progress can be accelerated by helping and being helped.
About The Meetings
We sit silently for 15 minutes and then each participant has the opportunity to explore their views on the chosen topic. The primary intention of the meetings is to help each person see their own patterns of mind and deeply-seated beliefs more clearly. The goal is not therapy but discovery.
Other benefits include: People to talk with, Recommended books, Weekend workshops and Group retreats.
In addition to the local resources, you can connect with a wider group of people, some of whom have found an ultimate answer and are motivated to help you do the same.
For more information on resources see the Self Discovery Portal (http://www.selfdiscoveryportal.com/index.htm).

And check out this free online spiritual ezine, The Forum (http://tatfoundation.org/forum.htm) with essays, poems, opinions and humor on seeking and finding answers.
Perhaps most importantly, with the Pittsburgh Self Inquiry Group you will find friendship with others who see the goal of self-knowledge or self-definition as the highest goal of life – and each individual's true calling and purpose.
