Bournemouth Spiritual Exchange Fortnightly Meetup

Do you really have Free Will, or are you just a puppet dancing to tunes played by your subconscious mind ?  Join us on Thursday when Trev Roberts will lead a discussion on this fascinating subject that has recently been in the news with reports of the results of new scientific research.  Bring your thoughts and feel free to share them in what will once again be another fascinating evening of Spiritual Exchange !

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

    I think that everyone is at the mercy of our subconscious till we become aware of what we are and the power we hold within, even down to the point that we can alter our physical by positive thought !

      Quote: But if past, present and future are all wrapped up in a simultaneous sort of being, how does that fit with past lives? There are several statements to the effect that one can look back and see the personalities one was in the past, but without wanting to associate with them.

      He recognises them, but he does not socialise with them. It’s not because he’s afraid, it’s just because he doesn’t want to get caught up in the whole Time thing. He understands he is his own individual and these are just aspects of a greater portion of his being, but he still wants to move forward in expressing himself, who he is as an individual, and not let any of these others dictate to him... or ‘codify’ his possibilities.

      If it's any consolation Jayne I'm constantly awe struck with how much other people have read and studied the subject ... and how much they remember of what they've read ! For me it often seems to go in one ear and out of the other, but I'm working to catch up :-) Introduce yourself to me when you arrive tonight so we can have a chat ...

    Hello, just a quick message for Jayne R. The last meeting was only my second one, and I'm certainly not knowledgeable yet, but just want to learn, so please don't be put off. If I can do it so can you. Look forward to seeing you tonight!
