Our spring SpiritGroups is now closed. SpiritGroups are currently meeting but are closed to new members. Be on the lookout for our next SpiritGroup experience in the fall of 2019.
What are spiritGroups?
SpiritGroups are a gathering of about 4-10 people that will meet once a week for 7-weeks to consciously deepen your awareness of your own courage and strength, while creating friendships and bonds that can last a lifetime. There will be groups throughout South Florida meeting on different days. The SpiritGroups program happens 3 times every year: Winter, Spring and Fall. The series changes but groups at their core will always focus on 5 Disciplines; communion, connection, compassion, community and challenge (read more about this below).
How do SpiritGroups Work?
The SpiritGroup Program has 3 main phases.
PHASE 1: April 21 through and including May 5: Host Recruitment. Two opportunities for training will be provided.
PHASE 2: May 12 through and including May 26: Individuals find their Preferred Group
PHASE 3: May 26 through and including July 7: SpiritGroups meet
what is a Host?
A host is someone willing to host a group, whether in their home or another location they find that is available. As a host, you will receive a 2-hour training session at Unity on the Bay to feel comfortable and be prepared to support your group.
The 5 SpiritGroup Disciplines
Communion - focuses on spiritual practices which heighten your awareness of your sacred calling and your personal relationship with a higher power.
Connection - involves connecting with others who are on a similar path and developing friendships with people who uplift and support you as you learn and grown together.
Compassion - empowers you to bless others in their times of need. It challenges you to be a light in the world and to purposefully seek ways to share your spiritual gifts with the people in your life.
Community - demonstrates your understanding of spiritual principles at work in the world beyond the walls of your spiritual home, and to express your beliefs through service, even when confronted with opposing viewpoints, allowing you to expand what you know to be true and dares you to live with spiritual authenticity.
Challenge - reveals your willingness to stretch and grow through ongoing study and contemplation while consistently and proactively expanding our understanding of spiritual principles.
