Exchange Meeting: Developing Good-Will Group Activities

We are working in a network of groups of the World Teacher Trust, which is focused on service activities on the background of inner transformation work. Last weekend we were at an exchange meeting of group responsibles in Einsiedeln, Switzerland. 30 persons from Austria, Belgium, Germany, Spain and Switzerland had come together. They are active in different projects. It was a very intense and focused exchange.

Saturday morning was devoted to clarify questions around the Paracelsus – Health and Healing magazine. It is a publication run solely by volunteers working in their freetime – with activities ranging from gathering articles, translations for a 3-language publication, layouting, printing, dispatch, administration to marketing… Many collaborators have developped professional qualities in the work, which often is very demanding.

In the afternoon several gorup service projects in the social field were presented. It was fascinating to see how by intelligent commitment small groups are running substantial social projects such as on migrant integration in Spain, a school in Kinshasa, Congo, a food distribution project in Argentina or a children summer camp in Switzerland.
Sunday morning we engaged in ideas for developing new initiatives. The whole time the focus was very much on practicality and inter-connection. I felt very much inspired when we returned home.
