The purpose of these groups is to provide an online platform for exploration and support for issues related to spiritual identity. Such as:
The question of God; does God exist; who/what is God
What happens after death
Discussion may also explore existential questions relating to the origin/nature of reality and existence, and purpose and meaning in life. Such as:
The purpose of existence
What is consciousness
The nature of reality
Whether life has meaning
These are all examples of conversations we can have in these spiritual discussion groups.
Group members will aim to support each other in sharing and exploring thoughts, feelings, belief systems and concepts with awareness and respect for diversity and difference in beliefs/faith.
These online groups are inclusive of all spiritual and religious faiths and backgrounds and discussions may include: sharing concepts, feelings and doctrine related to personal religious or spiritul beliefs.
Group members are required to practise tolerance of others' religious or spiritual beliefs within the group in order to attend discussion. Please view PDF agreement for further details.
Groups will take place weekly for 90mins and members will aim to attend a minimum of 8 discussions at a regular meeting time.
Online discussion groups 'meet' on Skype video conference or Skype IM group chat. Face to face discussion groups in Manchester are a possibility dependent on enquiries.
After initial introductions, group will begin with check in; each member may bring an issue or question and members will listen, help to explore the issues and offer support.
Group facilitator Katy Harris, professional counsellor, will guide this process. These groups are not couselling but members will need to be comfortable with sharing and exploring feelings in a group setting.
