What is the purpose of an A.R.E. Study Group?

An A.R.E. Study Group focuses on relating more fully to God and humanity, and on living more abundantly, extending love and service to others. It is NOT the purpose of an A.R.E. Study Group to function as an open-ended discussion group or a development group for mediumship or psychic phenomena. It recognizes the existence of extra sensory perception but it does not pursue it as a group activity. The A.R.E. does not recommend or endorse anyone commercially involved with any psychic field nor should any of its members promote their own business and/or services or those of others during meetings.

Why a study group?

Search for God I and IIIn a group there is the likelihood of all its members traveling in the same general direction, all in need of support and help. There is comfort in knowing one is not alone; that there are others with problems. There is an opportunity to get outside oneself and help others.

A group brings together a variety of viewpoints, educations, environments, experiences, and personalities. Collectively, the group wisdom may have far more to offer than could be found in any one individual.

In group discussions members may disclose personal problems which cause other members to see the same difficulty within themselves for the first time.

Meditation is developed more powerfully in a group, and personal meditation on one’s own is strengthened. The examples presented by group members increase one’s awareness of hidden personality traits and encourage efforts of self-change. The group helps members to talk openly, but not to talk so much that they deprive others of an opportunity. Members become more concerned with the whole group – not just with themselves.
