Bournemouth Spiritual Exchange Fortnightly Meetup

Wanna talk spiritual stuff with like-minded people and have a bit of fun at the same time? Then this group is for YOU!!

It's designed to attract spiritual people of all ages and persuasions, and in our fortnightly meetings the atmosphere is SOCIAL and INFORMAL, allowing people time to talk to friends new and old – in deliberate contrast to an evening dominated by a paid speaker. Above all we like to have FUN and not take ourselves too seriously, so we tend to begin and end our meetings at the bar ;-)

Of course the EXCHANGE of ideas and viewpoints to broaden our horizons is important too, so around an hour and a half is set aside during meetings for a discussion chaired by one of the organisers, during which we adjourn to a meeting room with chairs placed in a circle. In some meetings we deliberately discuss specific topics announced in advance (see our discussion board for more details of future topics). Others are much more free flowing and we tend to just see where the energy takes us.

Above all what the members of this group do is 'come from the heart'. Right from day one that's how it worked out, with members opening up to each other about their spiritual thoughts and inclinations in ways they might not with even their nearest and dearest. You're also welcome even if you think you're a 'beginner', because you've probably had just as many lives as any of us ;-)

We really look forward to welcoming you to our shared journey

      Bless you Lorna, that's a drink I owe you. I assume that's 'perfect' as in 'at making other people look good' :-)

    I just want to say thank you again to Wayne for an excellent intro to ‘Hoopopono’ last night. I couldn’t remember the book I’d read so had to look it up today! It was ‘Zero Limits’ by Joe Vitale. My daughter recommended the book and briefly told me what it was about. I very strongly resisted it for quite a while (not sure why I eventually decided to read it!) with thoughts that were voiced last night “Why should I accept responsibility for other people's wrongdoings?” “There is nothing to forgive” etc. But when I read it I could see the value in it, and often use it myself when I hear or see ‘bad things’ happening in the world. Also thank you Wayne (and everyone) for the love you give us all every meeting – I always wake up on the following morning after meetings feeling extra specially great when I go for my morning walk! Much love to everyone xx

      Wayne, I'd like to comment on your talk but there is a space limit here.

      I will therefore post in the Discussions section and maybe you could comment there?

      Thanks!

    THE INBETWEENERS (Name suggested by Ken) No it's not a new religious cult but a gathering for members of the Spiritual Exchange who can't quite bear to last 14 days without a natter with fellow souls on the path.

    At this latest Thursday meeting I floated the idea that on the Thursday nights that the official main group does NOT meet, those who wished could meet informally in the bar at The Elstead Hotel.

    Tessa commented that she found the gap too long between meetings so a meeting in between times would fit the bill.

    The advantage is that it will cost nothing - except maybe the price of a drink - and it matters not how many or how few turn up. (Well I guess we need at least two or three but we will probably manage that.) I will be there next Thursday anyway at 7.30pm and hope to see anyone who can drop in. I will post this also under the Discussions button so you can comment there or here if you'd like to share an opinion on this.

      It's a great idea you two! Probably unable to be there this week cos I have my lovely sister-in-law staying and I don't think she's in to spiritual 'stuff' - I would love to be proved wrong in which case we'll both be there!!! I'll be there 'in spirit' though - probably quietly listening as usual!!!! Much love to all xx
