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.
STARTING A GROUP
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 email@example.com.
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.
