Regular Weekly Groups and Classes

“Spiritual work in the Aquarian Age is – without exception – group work. The first wave of groups were the poets and musicians, who – through the 1950s and 60s – shattered the old cultural forms with new sounds and voices, crying out for freedom, love and peace. In their wake, through the 70s and 80s, another wave of groups emerged: the “workshop” movement. Groups would gather for a day, a weekend or a week in search of their deeper self, to communicate with greater honesty and intimacy, to develop new skills. It is from these temporary “seed” groups, that a new and more enduring form has evolved. These are the groups of two or more people who have learnt the skills, and matured enough, to move beyond criticism and gossip, to work seriously and quietly at some small piece of the work of planetary healing. In the hands of these groups rests the fate of the world.”
