Meetup Spiritual Experiences Discussions

Chattanooga Meetup Discussion: Relationships, A Means for Spiritual Growth

Saturday, October 10, 2:30–3:30 p.m.
Barnes and Noble Bookstore, 2100 Hamilton Place, Chattanooga

What a tapestry there is of people who help weave our lives with love, joy, ecstasy, frustration, anger, and even befuddlement. What if from Soul’s perspective we’ve invited every one of these folks into our lives for our spiritual growth? Some expand our heart’s capacity for love and joy (and they may be wearing fur or feathers!), some challenge our preconceptions and hold a mirror to our dark places, while with others we may be completing ancestral karmic cycles. Let’s talk about ways we can see these relationships through the eyes of Soul, to become more conscious and proactive weavers of our own lives.

Knoxville Meetup Discussion: Spiritual Growth and Transformation

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

Who were you before you were you? Whoever and wherever you were before, and wherever you might go next, surely, “Life goes on.” Many people have experienced an awareness of a past life existence, whether complete with concrete details, with only vague feelings and imagery, or simply a knowingness. You might find affinity with (or dislike for) a foreign country or culture, or you might feel a strange instinctual fear, or discover yourself surprisingly adept at an unusual skill. While certainly fascinating to consider and an interesting topic of conversation, there may be an important purpose to recalling specific past life experiences, to help you better live your life now by understanding the reasons and connections for your current circumstances and attitudes. Come share your own experiences, and learn easy spiritual exercises to go exploring!

By practicing simple daily spiritual exercises, during our everyday lives, we can open our awareness to the steady flow of God's love that patiently waits for us to awaken. Any time we exercise our gratitude and unconditional, selfless love to one another, we open our hearts to a happier existence. Please join us for a lively discussion!

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.”

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.
