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 up to 10 people meet once a month from September through June for no more than two hours. All groups are led by trained co-facilitators and center around a common theme for the month. Rooted in deep listening, the structure of the group 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.
Covenant Groups currently meet via zoom. Contact DLRE@WestsideUU.org for more information for the 2022-2023 year.
