 “If we are to live in harmony with ourselves and with nature, we need to be able to communicate freely in a creative movement in which no one permanently holds to or otherwise defends his own ideas.” ~ David Bohm

Purpose: The Circle serves as a path to finding shared meaning in our community. When separateness, prejudice, and biases disrupt our collective sense of balance we yearn for a wholesome response. A uniquely brilliant solution was put forth in a book written by the great 20th-century thinker and theoretical physicist David Bohm. The name of Bohm’s seminal work is “On Dialogue”.

“On Dialogue” is squarely aimed at uncovering the personal biases and prejudice that exist in all of us. The Dialogue process gives each of us an opportunity to safely explore the assumptions that belie the beliefs that support separation in its many forms. Separation is simply the distance we must navigate to find shared meaning.

The Circle is a sacred container that nourishes safety, confidentiality and mutual respect. Dialogue protocols add the disciplines of suspending judgment, silence when silence happens and listening generously with intent to be influenced by shared meaning.

All are welcome! This meeting is now open to everyone, however, we request RSVP before coming to your first one. Email your RSVP the circle leader listed below.

Meeting Information:  On the 1st Saturday of every month we meet from 9:30 – 11:30am. We begin with a centering meditation and prayer and then begin the exercise of Dialogue. Each participant has read and considered the participant’s responsibilities. Afterwards, all are welcome to go to lunch at Best Thai in Addison.

Men’s Circle



Purpose: We meet and provide a supportive place for men to step more fully into their purpose, passion, and authenticity. We seek to build trust by giving each man an opportunity to say how he feels. We aim to help each man address the issues in his life in a way that does no harm to other men, and in a way that he is in control of his own work. We strive to ensure confidentiality and emotional safety. Any man may abstain from commenting.

  • Check-ins are a statement from each man in the circle as to the feelings that he wants to announce are in his heart. There is no crosstalk. Each man will start with his name and have as long to speak as he takes unless he is rambling to the point of distraction. If so the moderator will ask him to finish.
  • After Check-ins the moderator will ask if anyone needs to go further into a feeling or if other men would like to address a man that is dealing with a heavy burden.
  • Each meeting will have a published topic. The moderator will introduce the topic.


Meeting Information: 2nd Saturday from 10:00am to Noon.

Leaders of Circle: 
Jeff Fritts,, 469-569-8930

Spiritually Motivated
Social Engagement (SMSE) Circle

In the midst of what may feel like the bombardment of conditions all around us in the world, we are called to bring our compassionate hearts and our conscious actions to a world crying out in pain. This is a massive challenge, but who is better equipped to meet this challenge than someone steeped in the Science of Mind?

With so many heart-breaking events and issues taking place in today’s times, there is a call to change the paradigms from which we human beings live and share our love, light, planet, and resources. There is an ever-increasing call for us to speak out and stand for our Global Vision. As a Spiritually Progressive community, we are called to speak out, stand up, and more than that, we must engage.

Purpose:   To provide spiritual guidance and active support as we collectively engage with the issues of the day. We seek to illuminate the interconnectedness of us as spiritual beings and our human conditions, regardless of the story. We seek to declare, unceasingly, the dignity of each individual and claim Spiritual Light as the Truth and guide for humanity.

Mission:   We are committed to engage in the issues of the day, to show up and stand for Love and as Love, and to create a World That Works For Everyone. We know the Truth – that we are spiritual beings expressing and creating in this human experience – that no matter what, Good must come of every condition because we claim it so – that there is a trajectory to evolution which is the expanding of consciousness – and that “this is sure to be attained by all.”

But faith without works is dead. We should not only pray, we should act, each contributing the best he has to the common purpose, each willing to make any sacrifice necessary…one in a certain sense, a selfish one, for we all desire self-preservation, but the other in the greater sense that there can be no individual self-preservation without the preservation of all.   ~ Ernest Holmes

Our SMSE Circle invites you to participate in AGNT’s Social Uplift Ministry (S.U.M.)

This program is designed to open your eyes to your unlimited good and clear all channels for abundance to enrich your life. You will also have the opportunity to experience the spiritual practice of tithing from your unexpected income.

Ernest Holmes said: “Expectancy speeds progress. Therefore, live in a continual state of expectancy. No matter how much good you are experiencing today, expect greater good tomorrow…Try this magic of expectancy…It makes life a game that is a joy to play.”

Meeting Information: 1st Sunday each month at CSLDallas from 12:00 – 12:45pm

Unlimited Visibility Circle

Purpose:  To practice knowing there is nothing more vital for us to understand than our inseparable oneness with God. To support each other and practice connection to the one life.

Description of the Circle: We meet to go through Stephanie Sorensen’s book Unlimited Visibility “Lessons and Processes to Improve Your “I” sight.”  The book is inspired by the teachings of the Science of Mind by Dr. Ernest Holmes. The intention is to assist the reader through lessons and processes in learning to use more effectively the Unlimited Power of Mind which is present within her or him.  There are twenty-six lessons which we will study as a group. Each lesson is followed by a Process application to the lesson and meditation to close.

  • Check-in and invocation

  • After Check-ins the leader or appointed person will read the lesson out loud, do the exercise as a group and then the meditation with that lesson to close.

  • Each lesson is laid out in the book per week.

  • Each meeting will be a topic in the book for that week.

  • People do not have to attend every week thought encouraged to attend for the 26 weeks.

  • We will communicate with those registered what they missed, and they will be asked to go through the lesson on their own

  • Everyone will be encouraged to buy the book

Meeting Information: Every Thursday Starting January 16, 2020 from 7 – 8:30pm (26 weeks)

Wisdom Circle


Purpose: The purpose of the Wisdom Circle is to learn, grow, and share new dimensions of Wisdom. We focus on uncovering the abundant gifts of our expanding life-span and exploring the unchartered opportunities that some call the second-half of life. Our lives after 50 journeys are unique. More and more of us, are living into our late eighties and beyond. In our Circle, we consider aging and life transitions as windows into new dimensions of wisdom and possibilities of spiritual growth. The Wisdom Circle is a whole-group experience and whole-group container for nurturing transformation.

We may schedule special events on holidays in lieu of meetings, like gathering for a 4th of July fireworks picnic. Members are encouraged to suggest and/or lead topics of special interest and contribute their creativity to enhance the vitality of the Circle experiences.

Description of Meeting: Circle leaders provide a structure as well as a topic focus for each session and facilitate the conversations and activities. We engage in “out-loud” personal inquiries and a collective dialogue of depth. We respect others by giving them our full attention without judging them or needing to verbally respond.  We do not give advice. We know there is nothing to be “fixed.” We do not “process” someone or try to convince another person to a certain point of view. Members frequently say how grateful they are for the openness, support, and camaraderie the Wisdom Circle creates.

Meeting Information:  First Thursday each month, except for on or next to holidays, 7-9 pm at CSLDallas or other locations. Please contact the leadership before attending, as the circle gathering is often held at a location other than CSLDallas.
