This group is about exploring issues around personal spiritual development. This is not a therapeutic group for handling spiritual emergencies or psychological distress. There are other organisations properly equipped to support these issues. Saying this, there are a huge number of issues that this group can share and discuss, for personal development and interest.

Reply To: Personal Experiences of first becoming aware of our ‘spiritual self’
My first experience of my spiritual self was as a 9 year old walking home alone from school. Bored, I decided to play a game of not walking on any pavement cracks. I carefully watched my wellington boot clad feet, aware that with each step my hand-me-down boots, which were slightly too big, slid down my heel. Completely focused on my legs and feet, I became unaware of my surroundings. Suddenly I came to a halt as a voice from within me loudly and clearly stated: “I am not these legs, I am not these eyes. I am using these legs and looking through these eyes but I am not this body.” I stood still, elated and excited in a way I had never felt before, knowing without doubt this was true.
This awakening had such a profound affect that it ignited my search to answer the question that it gave rise to: ‘If I am not this body, who am I?’ It took me over 40 years to finally fully awaken to the truth.
