Thank you for your interest in learning more about WAYfinding! WAYfinding is open to all faiths and secular perspectives. In fact, we think exploring the big questions amid diversity is key to helping us grow in love.
This year we're offering three 8-week rounds - fall, winter, spring. To read details about and sign up for our fall round, scroll down.
WAYfinding is group-based. Most of our groups have 7-10 people and meet for 2 hours each week for 8 weeks. Our groups meet in homes because it's comfortable and allows us to offer time for breathing/meditating/praying.
We have many groups located across the Indianapolis area, and starting this fall, a group in Portland, OR.
If you'd prefer to "try it out" first, check out our upcoming sample meetings.
Fall Round 2017
All day long we tell ourselves stories. Stories about ourselves, stories about others, stories about (or more often, from) our society/culture. Sometimes these stories are life-giving; but, sometimes they are not. In fact, the narratives dancing around in our heads can rob us of deeper truths, love, joy, meaning.
This fall, we'll explore how we can open up space for new stories to emerge. Our topics will include compassion, empathy, being wrong, conversation when we don’t agree, forgiveness, and nearing the holidays, we’ll explore the arguably “American" story of “busy lives, lots of things” alongside an alternative story of voluntary simplicity. Our resources will include neuroscience, Native American theology, authors Marilynne Robinson and Charles Eisenstein, a TEDTalk, an unexpected friendship between a poet environmentalist and the CEO of a timber company, and more.
Hope you'll add your voice to the conversation!

For those who can afford it, there is a cost with the WAYfinding experience. Each round we ask you make an investment in yourself of $50 - $150. It's a sliding scale; you pay what you can. And, if you can't pay, simply select our Scholarship Fund when signing up - that's all there is to it.
Or, you may become a sustaining member of WAYfinding by making a recurring donation of at least $30 per month. This option is not just an investment in yourself - all rounds are included - but in others. Your recurring donation (or quarterly/yearly, if you prefer) helps us sponsor new and existing participants, "get the word out," invest in public speakers and new programs, etc. You can learn more about our different investment levels here.
