Support for Spiritual Development

“The act of forgiveness is the act of returning to present time. And that's why, when one has become a forgiving person and has managed to let go of the past, what they've really done is they've shifted their relationship with time.”

- Caroline Myss

Effective groups

Collaborative process

One of the hallmarks of effective groups is the ability to work together collaboratively – sharing knowledge and learning from each other - whether in formal partnerships or as volunteers, in formal committees or in informal working groups.

Decision making

Consensus building and conflict resolution are key components of how we work together and reflect our spiritual practices and values.

Group functioning

Effective groups need appropriate groundrules, structure, planning, and facilitation. These resources also include tips on effective communication and understanding the personality composition of groups.


As we move towards increased interdependence and collaboration, how we conceptualize leadership also needs to shift.

Measuring group effectiveness

Much of our spiritual work takes place in groups. Being able to measure group performance can provide valuable feedback to enhance group effectiveness.

Online groups

Increasingly group work is taking place online rather than in person. These resources can help online groups network and function effectively.
