The purpose of the group is to discuss what matters in life and how to achieve a high level of personal growth and development. How does society help or hinder such development? What about family and relationships? Does organized religion have anything to offer? Ancient traditions? Philosophy? Yoga? Can a person develop on his/her own, or are institutional supports necessary?
How healthy is the way we in the West live? Does it allow for genuine growth? Is it excessively materialistic and ego-centred? Can a person live spiritually in the broader environment that Western mentalities create?
