Our online groups meet on Zoom to explore world spirituality. During the sessions, we discuss what we have read between meetings. Since we meet online, people may join from all over the world. However, please note that the groups are limited to English readers and speakers simply because of our language limitations.
We may not be physically
together, but the energy
and inspiration of our circle
can be much the same.
Groups are open to new members up until the first session.
Registration is by donation on a sliding scale.
Friends of the Oratory may join groups for free if they register when signed into their accounts on this website.
New Groups Starting Soon
Join Us. Groups are limited to 15 participants.

One of the bonuses for me, is the diversity of opinions
and the ability to discuss different opinions openly.

It is a breath of fresh air that we are not learning doctrine,
but rather the ideas and meanings behind spiritual traditions
that spark imagination and growth.
—Participant in Spiritual Texts
I have participated in the last two sessions of Spiritual Journeys.
I have gotten more out of the readings and discussions than I ever expected.
I felt welcomed and supported and enjoyed hearing others' experiences and perspectives.
And I felt comfortable asking questions and offering my own thoughts.
5 stars, and will likely participate again.
—Maggie, Participant in Spiritual Journeys
Spiritual journeys readers respectfully engage with a wonderful spectrum of skillfully selected, diverse stories and literature. Attentive facilitation of responses of each participant to each story creates a sense of respectful connection in which all readers are invited to explore and open to their own unique expressions of inquiry, curiosity, and wonder. Studies of spiritual texts, spiritual practices, and mysticism facilitated via Socratic method invites participants to question and engage in deep, critical reflection of ancient spiritual writing and spiritual practices. Delightfully refreshing and expansive online sessions.
