The 2020 Exploring cohort has already begun. We'll announce the opening of enrollment for 2021 next Spring.
We believe the growth of faith and spiritual attention will take place not only in organized religion, but also in individual relationships and building small communities of commitment and understanding. Our "Exploring" program is group spiritual discovery - a place to deepen your own spiritual beliefs and practices, and learn about the way others see their own spirituality. The time together includes morning gathering ritual (everyone gets a chance to lead), conversation around assigned reading and other learning materials (podcasts, video etc) and additional instruction and facilitation of practices during sessions.
Our mission at Zeitgeist is to lead the way with fresh curriculum and an integrated interfaith/interspiritual approach, encouraging participants to grow in faith, and their own spiritual connection.
All sessions will be via ZG Zoom (online meetings for our distributed community). Coursework will be specifically tailored to the online environment, making use of engagement tools within the Zoom technology.
Sessions are the second Saturday of each month, from 9:00 am – noon. (Eastern Time. See specific dates below)
All students in “Exploring” are asked to have a relationship with their own Spiritual Director. We can help connect you with the best directors in Atlanta, or wherever you're at.
Students will be part of a recurring small breakout group, no larger than 10, to facilitate trusting relationships, and time for meaningful interaction.
Students will be asked to read/view assigned material in between sessions.
Each student will complete a Spiritual Narrative project, sharing their own journey of coming to know themselves in the context of their faith construct.
