The Thursday Night Spirit Group is a community of people who value love, healing, and light in their lives. Their purpose is to channel spirits that can teach them how they can integrate more of these values into their lives, and spread them wherever they go. Most members are in their middle age, and find great comfort in this community. Along with meeting on Thursday nights, they often have group socializations on the weekend and stay in very close contact throughout the week.
