Spiritualist Meditation Group, Pontardawe

Name: Spiritualist Meditation Group, Pontardawe

Description: This group is a small gathering of a maximum of 6 people who meet weekly for friendship and a led-meditation inspired by the philosophy of White Eagle and other spiritualist teachers.

The evenings are an opportunity to share companionship and support with like-minded people. The aim is to achieve inner peace, a closer connection to the spirit world and an opportunity to send out love and healing to the world.

Each meeting starts with a little time for an informal catch-up, a time for members to chat about anything that is on their mind with a spiritualist focus. This is usually followed by a short inspirational discussion from the teachings of White Eagle, or other spiritualist material. After an opening 'prayer' for protection, we enjoy a meditation of approximately 20 minutes, after which the group is given time to share any insights they gained during meditation. A closing 'prayer' concludes the formalities. Members are invited to stay on for refreshments and more chat.

The evenings are held in the organiser’s home in Trebanos, currently every Thursday, starting at 7.30pm and ending approximately 9.30pm.
There is no charge to attend.

The group is for members who are able to commit to attending every week.
