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 Knoxville 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.

Needs a location

Is there more that unites us than we realize? How can spirituality help us look past our differences as people and nations 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 our essential common humanity. Join us for a lively discussion as we explore the role of spirituality in healing the divisions present in our society.

“The tabernacle of unity hath been raised; regard ye not one another as strangers. Ye are the fruits of one tree, and the leaves of one branch.” – Bahá’í Teachings
