Spiritual Friends Groups
Spiritual Friends Groups, sometimes called by the Pali term, Kalyana Mitta (KM) Groups, are small groups of FCM members who commit to meeting on a regular basis to discuss and share their experiences in the practice. They are a powerful means of strengthening and broadening one's practice. The group setting provides an opportunity for members to practice deep listening and sharing, and to support and nurture each other in efforts to bring the practice into daily life. They are an enjoyable way to form connections and friendships with others with similar interests and perhaps similar challenges.
Groups typically include meditation and Dharma sharing. In Dharma sharing members are able to benefit from each other's experiences by sharing the joys, difficulties, insights, and aspirations of their practice. Group members develop a deep sense of trust and acceptance that allows for true exploration of their Dharma journeys of personal transformation.
