I went to my first Spirituality and Healing support group today. I knew one person from the previous group but I didn't know anyone else. All of the other people knew each other and had been participating in this group for years. At least one person had been going to the group for 5 years. Needless to say, that was a bit intimidating.
Each 6 week session has a theme, apparently (which is probably why people can take them for years and years), and this session's theme is Gratitude. It looks like the focus will be on being mindfully grateful for the good things that we each have.
I hope I like this group - I have some small reservations, because some of the people are a little over the top with the spirituality (although I did notice that those people tended to be very poetic). I don't know whether or not I believe in this spirituality thing that strongly. I think I don't disbelieve, so I guess I'm sort of neutral. I'll stick it out in the group for this session, and re-evaluate afterwards.
