What would it mean to create a space where we come together to connect with each other, with our deepest selves, and with the world? Members, friends, and visitors of Westside, you are invited to bring your authentic self to these connection groups.
Covenant groups of 6-10 people meet once a month from September through June and are led by trained co-facilitators. Each gathering centers around a common theme for the month (themes for the year are listed further down this page). Rooted in deep listening, the structure of the groups is designed to foster three kinds of connection: connection to one’s own deepest self, connection to life, and connection to other members of the group.
Another key feature of the groups is that, when they gather, participants listen to one another. Soul Matters groups aren’t discussion groups. Members don’t give each other advice. What they do is listen, and in the listening, many participants have found that they hear their own inner wisdom more clearly. For more about the value of these kinds of connections, see Karen Moore’s blog post on connection and authenticity.
Groups meet once per month for no more than two hours. Groups start meeting in the fall; new members may be added during the year as long as slots remain open, as indicated below:
