“ … as long as we try to grasp God, we shall never realize him. 
Life itself, as we experience it moment by moment, proceeding as it does 
directly from God, is the perfect analogy of this truth, for to grasp life is to kill it,
or rather, to miss it, and more than ever is this true of God - the Life of life. 
Pluck a flower and it dies. Take up water from the stream, and it flows no longer. 
Pull down the blind, but the sunbeam is not trapped in the room. 
Snatch the wind in a bag, and you only have stagnant air. 
This is the root of every trouble: man loves life, 
but the moment he tries to hold onto it he misses it. 
The fact that things change, move, and flow 
is their very liveliness, 
and the harder man hangs on to his life, 
the sooner he dies of worry. “

                             Alan Watts, Behold the Spirit, 1947, p. 92

What paths lie ahead for religion and spirituality in the 21st Century? How might the insights of modernity and post-modernity impact and inform humanity's ancient wisdom traditions? How are we to enact, together, new spiritual visions – independently, or within our respective traditions – that can respond adequately to the challenges of our times?

This group is for anyone interested in exploring these questions and tracing out the horizons of an integral post-metaphysical spirituality.
