Small Groups are the Engines that Will Evolve a Changed Humankind

AREI knows that for humankind to learn to live together in love, peace, and joy, individuals must become more loving, tolerant, and compassionate. That requires interpersonal experiences as people learn about themselves and life. Small groups will provide the interpersonal experiences and learning.

AREI has a small-group initiative that is encouraging the development of small groups that meet in physical locations or meet online in Zoom groups. Some groups have special interests, such as grief support, instrumental transcommunication, physical mediumship, mental mediumship, book discussions, and other such interests. Other groups meet regularly for the camaraderie as they share and discuss random topics about this life and the life after this life.

Our Zoom meeting room hosts group discussions – please check the calendar or explore the groups below to find a group or discussion that interests you.

Success of the Groups

The groups are very successful. To date, the following groups have formed, with over 250 participants. The groups have the following interests:

  • Animals and the afterlife
  • Mediumship and automatic writing
  • Spirit art
  • Physical mediumship development circles
  • Learn to record EVP
  • Meditation and intuition development
  • Maintain a connection with a soul-mate
  • Australia/Europe gathering
  • Weekly global gathering sharing developments from Europe, Australia, Canada and the USA

Opportunities for Growth with Funding

The groups will help people learn and have experiences that will be life changing for them. AREI will encourage the development of groups, support the groups with educational materials, and network the groups to allow them to learn from each other. The primary need funding will satisfy is to promote and advertise the groups so more groups are established and people join the groups.

Zoom Groups

AREI is holding regular Zoom online meetings. A Zoom meeting allows participants to participate in meetings from wherever the individuals or groups are in the world. Live video images of the participants show on the screen, and they can participate in discussions, hear speakers, ask questions, and otherwise perform group activities without having to come together at a location. Please check the calendar to find a meeting that interests you.

Thanks for the meeting Sunday 10 a.m. London time, that I just attended. As ever it was lovely to meet up with like minds.

When I started out looking for information and evidence of life after death, almost a lifetime ago, in London and Kent in UK, everything I found out was very hard work and hard earned. I had to travel a lot to many different places to see different people and mediums, and there was no internet, only a few rare books. The weekly circles I sat in and classes I went to often involved travel of at least an hour each way, often in dreadful weathers. I think many people maybe don’t realise how lucky we are to have here in AREI online, access to the ‘creme de la creme’ of mediumship information as well as the whole spectrum of research and info re life after death, in such experienced hands and on our own doorsteps, and all the very interesting and well informed experienced people that go with it all. 

Your constant efforts and hard work at AREI, all of it completely voluntary as a gift, to get everyone together on Zoom and in all manner of groups to make it so much easier for all to share and consume all this very valuable information, are so very much appreciated! You’re creating a wonderful resource for so many! I hope people realise how precious this is and I think BIG THANKS are very much in order.
