Annual Report For The Year 2021

Offering educational programs to increase the awareness and expression of the qualities of soul and the strength of group soul, to reveal the One Life, and to help people live more effectively in their everyday lives to bring a finer aspect of Life to the emerging New World Community

Amid the complex currents of world change, disruption, and confusion, the SEQL educational programs bring an awareness to the underlying energies and forces affecting our experiences.  SEQL programs train our sensitivity to the finer currents of Life, and enhance our ability to express Life more effectively as we face the challenges of change in our everyday activities.  Energy sensitivity training is a particular focus of our weekend courses and our subjective public meditation evenings.

As a way of sharing our learning, and at the same time strengthening our subjective service, we have increased our contacts with other groups of similar intent, locally, nationally, and internationally through online connections and in our subjective group meditations.  We expect these contacts with other groups to continue to increase in the years ahead.

In September 2021, we offered 18 courses/study groups and received 149 registrations.   These are higher numbers than previous years.  Many students have been engaged in SEQL courses for several years – some since the Society first offered courses in 1998.  Some students are taking more than one course.

Our courses remain tuition-free.  As a registered charity, we receive donations that are used to provide guest speakers (currently online) and to support other organizations having a purpose similar to SEQL’s.  The Board thanks our volunteer course leaders, program managers, and our course members, as together, we build a strong group serving action.

Due to the pandemic, all our classes and gatherings of all groups were online.  The benefit of this is being able to offer our courses and study groups to people far afield.  Our course members include people from the US, UK, Eastern Canada and Italy. We are building on our individual and group strengths as we move forward into new ways of organizing, learning, teaching, and working together cooperatively.
