The 3D Dialogue delves into a range of ecumenical, inter-faith and inter-spiritual material, including books, digital media and conference papers to explore the Divine.

We meet on Zoom four times a year.

Each yearly theme engages with a range of materials.


  • a spiritual classic 
  • a contemporary spiritual book 
  • a spiritual auto/biography 
  • a wildcard (depending on theme)

Between meetings we will share any podcasts, articles, YouTube talks or any other relevant material on our Event page.

The main dialogue will centre on the selected material with the additional media available for those that want to go deeper into the ideas being explored. 

2024 dates are: Feb 25, May 26, Aug 25, Nov 24 at 5.30pm (AEST).

The eight principles of Contemplative sharing
Which we will use in our 3D Dialogue spaces
  1. Keep comments rooted in your own lived experience and refrain from remarks that are overly abstract, philosophical, or theoretical. 
  1. Express your own thoughts knowing that others will listen and reflect upon what you say. It is helpful to use "I" statements like "I believe..." or "I am confused by that response." Try framing your remarks with phrases such as "My assumption is that..." or "My experience has been..." Trust that others are hearing you. 
  1. Pay attention to the assumptions, attitudes, and experiences underlying your initial or surface thoughts on the topic. Ask yourself questions like: "Why am I drawn to this particular passage?" "What makes me feel this way?" 
  1. Remember to listen first and refrain from thinking about how you might respond to another's comments. Simply listen to and accept his or her thoughts on the subject without trying to challenge, critique, or even respond aloud to them. 
  1. Trust the group. Observe how the participants' ideas, reflections, common concerns, assumptions, and attitudes come together and form a collective group mind. 
  1. Reflect before speaking and be concise. Make one point or relate one experience, then stop and allow others to do the same. 
  1. Expect periods of silence during the dialogue. Learn to be comfortable with silence and resist the urge to speak just because there is silence. 
  1. Avoid cross-talking. In time you will adjust to saying something and not receiving a response and to listening without asking a question, challenging, or responding directly. Simply speak from your own experience or perspective as you honor others doing the same.
