Join a group

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.



The Eremos Membership Secretary may be able to assist members to find others to form a group in their area.

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.



There are several active Eremos groups. Please see below for details of their current activity and how to contact them. If you have any questions or would like to list your group here, please contact

After nearly 40 years of providing sets of books for groups and individuals to read and discuss, Eremos Books for Groups is closing down.  It’s been a wonderful resource for many people over the years but in the past few years only a handful of books have been borrowed so we have made the decision to wind up this project.

We have more than 400 books available at bargain prices: a donation or the cost of postage.  Get a set (up to 10 copies) for your group or add single copies to your personal library.  The full list of books is here.  You can also phone (02) 4739 0632, email or write Elaine at PO Box 198 Glenbrook NSW 2773 for a copy of the list or to request your books. 

We thank all the people who have helped to organise and administer our book borrowing scheme over the years and most recently Elaine Alinta who has a cupboard full of books she would love to give away.

Do you have a library or group that might like multiple copies of the same title? We would be grateful for your help in getting these wonderful books into hands of people who would like to read them.
