From its very beginning, Eremos has nurtured small group gatherings where people can share their experiences and learn with and be nourished by one another in a common exploration.

    Starting a group

The Eremos Membership Secretary may be able to assist members to find others to form a group in their area. Most of the current Eremos groups are listed on the Join or Start a group page.

Please feel free to email directly the group contact listed near you. If you have any need of further assistance please contact

The focus of Eremos groups is on collegiality and sharing, rather than an expert leader. Most groups use our Books for Groups resources and read a book over a course of several weeks or months. Some also use the EREMOS magazine articles as stimulation for a regular discussion.

Books for Groups

Eremos recognises the power of books to stimulate, challenge and comfort, and has a strong history of providing and engaging with books. We have a wonderful library of books ready for your use. Up to ten copies of each title are available. Hire one or hire up to ten of the same title. Browse the titles here.

Hire cost per book is $5 for Eremos members or $7 for non members. We pay postage to you and you pay return postage.

We invite members to share in the transformative and stimulating act of reading and discussing books by starting their own group or joining an existing group. Email:
