If you've visited my blog lately, you'll see that I'm putting together my own personal spiritual program. I have no interest in evangelizing a new spiritual path, but of having something that meets my needs and fosters my personal growth.
One piece of my program is community. I have a background with twelve step fellowships, but I no longer satisfy the only requirement for membership. So I no longer attend. Not having that community of souls on a spiritual path has left a hole in my life.
To make a long story short, I would like to be part of a group that meets once per week to share their experience, strength, and hope with each other. I want to share my experiences on my path and hear about others and their path. I imagine it would look like a heart circle where each person could speak without interruption or cross talk. We could say whatever we needed. It wouldn't be limited to talking about our spiritual path. This isn't to critique the choices of others or to make suggestions - just to share.
Depending on who's interested, we could find a central location convenient to all or meet online in a video conference. We could meet in my home or a coffee shop somewhere. Does this idea interest anyone? When I came down from the mountain after Dear Love of Comrades, I had a sense of a greater reality that was more real than our day to day world. I was changed. I want to learn how to carry that consciousness on a regular basis and I need help from my brothers to do that.
