Resources for finding communities IRL?

Resources for finding communities IRL?

Postby alejandrocerv » Fri Aug 01, 2014 7:57 pm

Hey y'all!

Now, this community has been super helpful for me in my short time here, and I'm certainly here to stay, but I'm wondering what is a good place to go for finding meetings offline. For relevant information's sake, I'm located in the Twin Cities metro area, and am starting an organization for students on my campus of alternative faiths. Currently our "Interfaith Council" only has members of mainstream sects of the three major Abrahamic faiths, and a friend and I want to change that and other conditions that have made it difficult for altfaith practitioners to feel comfortable.

As part of that change, we're looking for ways to help students connect to, not only on-campus "Otherfaith" resources, but community resources that pertain more specifically to their individual beliefs. We are as yet unchartered, but expected charter members include Neopagans, Satanists, Hermeticists/Kabbalists, a Sikh, and several spiritual seekers. Are there good websites to go to for finding communities, or does anybody know of anything specific in the Twin Cities?

Thanks!

Are you talking about Minneapolis and Saint Paul?

I'm from sunny sunny London in the UK so I can't help you there mate, except maybe offer some advice.

I was active on a social network for magic users called Temple Illuminates before they realized I was under 18 (will be 18 in a few weeks ha ha) but that might help you with that sort of thing.

Good luck :)

Bump. I know its been over 2 h years but I am interested if anyone had any information about this. I tried the temple illuminatus someone recommended, but it looks like the last posts were around 2014 so... I'm not going to join that haha
