The March 29th Leaving Religion Discuss Group will be held on Google Hangouts. Please send Elizabeth your email address via private message in Meetup if you would like to attend. https://www.meetup.com/Humanist-Society-of-Greater-Phoenix/events/269584289/
Many people today are experiencing either a change in their religious beliefs or have left religion altogether. This often results in a loss of close relationships. Know that you are not alone.
Discovering how to live after leaving religion or changing beliefs is a journey. Even though you may be experiencing more freedom, and you know that it was the right thing for you, it doesn’t mean it has been easy.
This meet-up is designed to provide a welcoming place for each person to share feelings, thoughts and stories for a few minutes, or to simply listen to others.
This is not meant to be a support, counseling or therapy group. We are meeting and talking to others who have gone through similar experiences which can be healing or comforting. You’ll meet former believers who are now atheists, agnostics or not sure what they are.
Since leaving religion can make one feel socially distant even when there is not a global pandemic, let’s use the March 29th google hangout to discuss finding new connections after leaving religion. Or, just check in with us. I’d love to know how everyone is coping while making changes to their routine like working from home. I will delay the topic that was voted on for the next meeting until we can meet again in person.
Per our usual structure, we’ll give each person 4 minutes to talk about their experience with 2 minutes for follow up questions so that everyone has a chance to talk.
Limit 10 people
We meet 90 minutes once a month at the Humanist Society of Greater Phoenix. Humanism is a secular philosophy that encourages critical thinking and ethics.
Let’s enjoy some great conversation and get to know some awesome people. Join us.
Your hosts: Elizabeth Sowell, Mark Bork, Igor Moll
