Spiritual Growth Clubs
An increasing number of people are committing themselves to conscious, responsible and empowered living. The number and variety of spiritual workshops and therapies attest to this. Yet, more is required to manifest awareness in action than just a once-off intervention. Personal transformation is a dynamic and ongoing process and requires consistent integration and support, whether that is in the form of honest feedback, access to new knowledge or motivation. Often we attempt, or feel we are forced, to pursue our spiritual development in isolation. Besides the fact that this reinforces a consciousness of separation, it can also leave us blinkered to our own stumbling blocks or gifts or next steps.
Angela offers you the opportunity for continuous integration and expansion of your growth in the form of facilitated, spiritual growth clubs.
What is a spiritual growth club?
An intimate group of no more than 6 members that commits to their own and each other’s spiritual development for no less than one year. The group meets once a month for a growth session, which will be facilitated by spiritual teacher, Angela Deutschmann. Over and above growth sessions, groups may or may not choose to be in electronic or telephone contact with each other and their facilitator or to pursue other activities together. Each group has the privilege and responsibility of setting their own particular pace and priorities.
What is the purpose of a growth session?
The purpose is threefold:
Involve yourself in the growth of other members in an honest and constructive manner, allowing them to be involved with you in the same way. Move out of spiritual isolation into the beauty and synchronicity of inter-dependence and support.
Inspire yourself and others by being exposed to new knowledge or modalities, shared books and insights, and the miraculous in everyday life.
Integrate your highest wisdom and your everyday behaviour. Commit to next steps that will allow you to put your awareness where it’s really needed – in the practical details of your life.
What happens at a growth session?
A growth session will always involve the three elements of: structured sharing (INVOLVE), exposure to new knowledge and exercises (INSPIRE) and commitment to action (INTEGRATE).
Growth sessions will be loosely facilitated by Angela to ensure high levels of productivity, focus and challenge. Activities may include sharing and feedback, Shadow work, games, book and film discussions, personal pain work or stillness exercises. While each group sets their own priorities and pace, the facilitator will ensure that surprise and stretch remain part of every session.
How are the groups formed?

“I find that I often get stuck in a specific way of thinking or
assessing situations. The spiritual support group that I am part of
constantly gives me new ideas and fresh perspective on my life. Each
month the group session has a different theme, (always well thought out
and relevant) each theme comes with its own unique tools and challenges
and therefore rewards. Spending time with new people who are equally
enthusiastic to grow themselves spiritually continuously inspires and
challenges me. It is great to know there is a group of people with a
similar mind set that are outside my immediate group of friends and
therefore can give neutral and well thought out opinions and insight. I
am also constantly amazed how much I can learn form other people’s
experiences (although they may not seem similar on the surface there are
always lessons for me to learn from each interaction).
I have only been to three sessions so far and can’t wait to see what the next nine months bring!“
“I have this truly awesome sense of having stepped out as my true self. I have a sense of liberation and vitality and excitement about life I can’t remember having felt before. Ang sensitively and compassionately facilitates this truly genuine growth adventure.’’
‘’Being in a support group over the past few months has given me the comfort of 'a safe place to land' in a time in my life when I have needed it the most. I have been guilty in the past of isolating myself from the world and attempting to deal with my issues alone. The support group has provided me with the perfect "space" where I feel safe and supported enough to be vulnerable. I am now able to carry this need to express myself and my vulnerability, into all aspects of my life. It has been the perfect reminder that I am not alone in the world and by sharing my experiences, I can assist others in their lives too. Thank you for the opportunity.’’
"Being challenged, encouraged and supported by a new circle of friends gave me something to look forward to every month. New perspective on my own experiences and learning from others, I know has helped me to speed up my journey to Joy. The weekend away served as the perfect climax. Beautiful surroundings, inspiring friends and an awesome facilitator. Thank you Angela and my group for amazing year together."
