All Souls offers different ways for our members and friends to connect with each other, with themselves, and our environment. Our Soulful Circles are small groups of people which meet monthly for deeper connection and reflection. Our Soulful Circles are safe space without assumptions about religious perspective, culture, or tradition and are a powerful way experience love beyond belief! If you’re curious about what this looks like in real life or are looking for a way to connect and learn from others, check out a Soulful Circle by signing up in the church foyer on Sundays or email Soulfulcircles@allsoulschurch.org.
We’ve asked Soulful Circle participants to share about their experiences and what being a part of a Soulful Circle means to them.
I’ve learned there’s greater depth to me and other people than I ever imagined.
“There’s been so much I’ve learned about myself through Soulful Circles. EVERY single month I learn something about myself that I didn’t know before — about my beliefs or feelings or biases, my judgements, my thinking. I often get surprised by what I hear myself say when it’s my turn to speak. A safe place to explore brings out what’s real. BUT, the most important thing I’ve learned is that there are many different perspectives, the practice has busted me out of the distorted belief that everyone (or even most) think like me. The practice has broadened my thinking and world view. To deeply listen and be listened to is life changing. It’s deepened my understanding of and appreciation for the monthly themes, and for my fellow human beings. I’ve learned there’s greater depth to me and other people than I ever imagined. It’s a privilege I don’t take lightly to be a part of my Circle.” -Danna Vitt
I can explore areas of my soul that I usually don’t.
“In my Soulful Circle, I’ve learned that I can trust this wonderful group of fellow travelers to truly hear me with generosity and without judgment. In this safe space, I can explore areas of my soul that I usually don’t. I’ve connected with the members of my group deeply, on a spiritual and emotional level, through sharing honestly and with a sense of love and trust. A Soulful Circle provides a safe and caring space where I can express myself as we, together, explore and share about topics through our hearts and spirits.” – Dan Piazzola
I have learned that I can listen without having to offer advice or crosstalk.
“My Soulful Circle group has helped me grow through the conscious decision to examine my own perspectives and feelings and by listening to others in an atmosphere of trust. I have learned that I can listen without having to offer advice or crosstalk. Connecting to other “seekers” is important to me, and I’ve found consistent connection through my Circle at All Souls.” – Linda Alred
