Atheist approach

Unread postby » Fri Apr 10, 2015 12:45 pm

For those in the Philadelphia Main Line, Montgomery or Delaware County.
Do you know of any good meetings that do not depend on readings from the "book/" and that do not have a religious overtone.

Please, do not reply with calls for my religious conversion. If God works for you I respect your position. Please, respect mine.
Thank you/

I go to meetings in Philadelphia (mostly center city area) and most of them are pretty non-religious. I'm an atheist in the program and I find that most people in that area are pretty open to individual approaches. I would dare say that most of the people that I'm close to from this area are non-religious.
I'm not aware of any meetings explicitly geared toward non-believers but you are most definitely not alone. I've shared in meetings about being an atheist and I cannot remember anything other than affirming reactions.
Good luck!

I am an atheist and I am looking for the same thing, It's difficult to relate to others and overcome problems with people who perceive the universe in such a way that depends on fate, faith and God, it makes me feel hopeless. I wish there were groups that did not incorporate religious beliefs into meetings.

Have any of you tried Smart Recovery ? The meetings are free, science based and non-judgemental .
Take a look @ their website .
