There are twelve Guild groups meeting regularly across the country. There is also a group in Adelaide, Australia. The groups have their individual character, but with a general reference to the aims and purposes of the Guild. Members speak of the value of being able to express ideas and feelings, often still in the process of formation, knowing that both the ideas and the person will be accepted and valued. When ideas and values are changing, it is often the group which becomes the container and provides a safe space for the individual. Many members say that they find in their Guild group something not found easily elsewhere today.
The activities of the groups vary widely. Sometimes a book, a fairy story or a piece of art is used as the basis for discussion. Often a Guild CD or pamphlet provides the focus. Some groups like to work through a theme. The resulting discussions are always creative and lively, as members seek to enlarge their own experience of the psyche through a variety of media and to explore in some small way the meaning of life, thus reflecting the living spirit of the Guild and the importance of the groups to the Guild as a whole.
The Convenors of the groups meet together once a year for discussion and sharing with each other.
Informal Guild groups meet for the benefit of members unable to attend lectures. There are groups in:
|Bristol and Bath||Chichester||Croydon||Derbyshire|
|West London||Adelaide, Australia|
Names and addresses of the Group Convenors are sent to new members on joining the Guild and to all members annually.
