The Nuhra Community evolved out of a previous
community which had brought new psychological awareness and insight into the everyday lives of
many people. The present Community which
came into being in 1999, recognised that this work
of self knowledge was often the catalyst for an inner
awakening to a deeper level of the self - an
awakening to the life of the soul and the spirit.
This understanding informs much of their work
which aims to nurture and integrate all aspects
of the human person, body, mind, soul and spirit.
The foundation and inspiration for their life comes from the Gospel value "to love your God with your whole heart and your neighbour as yourself."
Membership of the Nuhra Community
The Community is open to all adult men and women who accept the vision and objects of the Constitution and its values. There are three tiers of membership:
Friends and Associates:
People in this group volunteer services to the Community because they wish to make a contribution to the work of the group. There is no expectation that Friends and Associates will attend the spiritual programmes of the Community, but there is a mutual recognition that in the sharing of gifts and time the goodness in life is nourished and grows.
Generally wish to share more fully in the life of the Community.
They volunteer their services more regularly and participate more fully
in the spiritual life of the Community. They renew their commitment annually.
Make a life commitment to the Community to live out a Gospel way of life. In this they have a mutual responsibility toward each other - to share their spiritual life, their knowledge their earnings and their gifts, not only for the benefit of the Nuhra Community but to enrich the life of the broader community.
Prospective members would be expected to live at least 2 years with other Nuhra community members before any final decision about a permanent commitment could be made.
