Meetup Spiritual Experiences Discussions

Memphis Meetup Discussion: Seeing Blessings in Our Every Day Lives

Saturday, June 27, 2:00–3:00 p.m.
Barnes and Noble, 2774 N Germantown Parkway, Memphis

Opening our hearts with love helps us to see the blessings in our lives. We get so caught up in the frenzy of everyday life, we forget to stop and smell the roses, to be grateful for events in our life no matter how small. Have you looked back on an event that was painful at the time and said—that’s the best thing that could have happened to me? Let’s talk about how we can be more present in the moment to recognize the spiritual blessings that are always with us. Awareness and gratitude go hand in hand.

Knoxville Meetup Discussion: Soul Travel and Out of Body Experiences

Wednesday, June 3, 7:00–8:00 p.m.
Earth Fare (Turkey Creek), 10903 Parkside Dr., Knoxville

You are Soul, a divine spark of God. Contrary to common perspectives, the real you is Soul and you simply have a body. Soul can freely, safely and naturally leave your body in any number of ways, and easily return to it when you so desire. When you change your focus or attention, or leave your body entirely as Soul, you are Soul Traveling. Everyone is already a natural born Soul Traveler when you dream or daydream, or let your consciousness wander to another place or time. Even modern science is exploring simple methods to coax Soul out of the body, and explore awareness from new perspectives. Please join us for a lively and loving discussion.

Chattanooga Meetup Discussion: Beyond Prayer is Contemplation

Saturday, June 13, 2:30–3:30 p.m.
Barnes and Noble Bookstore, 2100 Hamilton Place, Chattanooga

Contemplation is a method that enables us to begin to actively explore the inner worlds of our own being through spiritual exercises. It is different from meditation, a passive state. Spiritual exercises link us to the Holy Spirit, which is heard as the Sound and seen as the Light of God. The inner Sound is the Voice of God calling us home. The inner Light is a beacon to light our way. Join us for a discussion of the difference between prayer, meditation and contemplation.

Tri-Cities Meetup Discussion: Building Spiritual Confidence

Saturday, June 13, 2:30–3:30 p.m.
Perkins Restaurant and Bakery, 2608 North Roan Street, Johnson City

We all know it’s so important to have self-confidence. But what about spiritual confidence? At this meeting we’ll talk about learning to trust our personal spiritual guidance and wisdom. We all have the capacity to get our own answers and know the right course of action to help us have the best life possible. Maybe you have a story that illustrates a time when you trusted your inner wisdom, even though to others it seemed like “not the right thing!” Join us for this discussion on deepening our ability to listen to Divine Spirit.

HU Songs in Tennessee

“Singing HU has been practiced for thousands of years in one form or another for inner attunement. In the same way a musician can use a tuning fork to find the right pitch, the person singing HU tunes in to a higher spiritual awareness.”
                                                                —Harold Klemp, HU, The Most Beautiful Prayer, page vii

Monthly and weekly HU Songs are held in the following areas and times. The HU Song lasts about 20 to 30 minutes with time afterwards for visiting and sharing. Everyone is welcomed. To learn more about the HU, and to hear what it sounds like when sung or chanted in a group, click here.
