SpiritGreens is "a network for Green Party members of any faith/religion, or on any spiritual path or seeking one".
An e-list was started at the end of 2008, and we now include three MPs and over 100 members across Aotearoa and we are still growing. Local groups meet in Christchurch and Dunedin, and it is expected that groups will soon form in Hamilton and Auckland. We have caucuses at Green Party conferences, where we also arrange a short Sunday morning silent meeting for worship/meditation.
Many of us have had convoluted spiritual paths, some still seek one, but all of us appear to see our beliefs as inextricably intertwined with Green politics.
Apart from face-to-face meetings when possible, we communicate mainly via the e-list.
