Welcome to Open Spirit…

you are warmly invited to join us in exploring the depths of Christianity in an open and collaborative way and discovering the riches of a reflective and contemplative approach to daily life.

Open Spirit offers small, friendly meetings for spiritual study and meditation in the Dartington and Totnes areas of South Devon. We also gather for day retreats on different spiritual themes and that explore the Christian ‘seasons of the spirit’, from Advent to Easter and beyond…

Open Spirit…

respects all…

We respect all wisdom traditions and take a non dogmatic approach to the Christian Mysteries, which celebrates their inspiration and beauty without making exclusive truth claims. We have a particular interest in the Divine Feminine, in reclaiming Christian Herstory and restoring a balance of masculine and feminine in contemporary mystical Christianity. We welcome people of any faith or none and from both within and outside established traditions. Open Spirit groups contain a rich mix of people of all ages, genders and varied backgrounds.

thinks deeply and asks questions…

We are committed to thinking deeply about faith and meaning and to asking open questions. We feel free to engage with both the  treasures of tradition and the creativity of new ways of thinking, praying and serving. We draw upon both classical and contemporary forms of spirituality.

works collaboratively…

Open Spirit upholds non hierarchical and collaborative ways of working that emphasise facilitation and the active participation and equality of all and we celebrate a diversity of culture, age, gender, sexuality etc

lives reflectively…

The intention behind our meetings is to expand our understanding of what spirituality means, to learn to listen to each other and the spirit at work within each of us and to practise contemplative ways of being that will help us to reflect and respond, rather than react to life.

loves, creates and cares about all…

Open Spirituality celebrates the interdependence of all life. It works to heal suffering, to free, to nourish and uphold peace, justice and all life. We seek to serve this life giving spirit in all the creative forms it takes in people and in the natural world.

Please join us in exploring what it means to be an Open Spirit!
