Soul Circle

What is Soul Circle?

The Soul Circle is a bimonthly spiritual conversation with an online community who consider themselves as pilgrims on a journey. It is designed to provide a safe space for people to share their God experiences and listen to other people’s sacred stories. Each meeting is a unique opportunity to see God’s presence and how He is moving in one’s life.

How is it different from your other programs?

The Soul Circle is a special standalone online coming together of pilgrims on the journey that is not part of the existing Spiritual Formation and Zest Programs. There are no teachings involved like in the modules we conduct.

Who is it for?

The Soul Care is open to

  • Those who have undergone spiritual formation and want to maintain a contemplative lifestyle with the help of a community.
  • Individuals who have just started the journey to spiritual growth
  • Anyone who desires to have some pockets of silence along the journey in the safe company of an online community.
