FIGU-Landesgruppe Canada

Dear  Reader,

Thank you for your interest in FIGU-Landesgruppe Canada!  We’d like to take this time to outline the goals of the organisation and introduce you to the different ways that you can become involved.  Once you have reviewed this notice, if you have questions or would like further clarification or information, please 
contact us. 

As a not-for-profit organisation, some of our main goals are: to provide interested individuals information about FIGU-Landesgruppe Canada events and activities; to answer questions pertaining to the Billy Meier case and the spiritual teaching; to maintain a FIGU-Landesgruppe Canada website; to publish a regular newsletter; to translate and publish FIGU material/books into English; to assist and support the formation of study groups across Canada; to host monthly public events; to organise lectures and presentations on various FIGU topics; to have FIGU information tables/booths at various public events; and eventually, to establish a FIGU Centre in Canada;

As someone who is interested in the FIGU material and the Billy Meier case, there are many options open for you to consider. You can:

  • Study FIGU material and the spiritual teaching on your own.
  • Meet informally with like-minded individuals or FIGU members in your geographic area. Please let us know if you would like to exchange contact information with others (Canada only).  We only connect people when both parties agree.
  • Become a passive member of FIGU Switzerland. For more information see FIGU Membership
  • You could form or be part of a group named "Interessengruppe" (interest group), which is a precursor to an official "Studiengruppe" (study group) and requires at least 2 FIGU passive members. An "Interessengruppe" is for people who are willing to support FIGU's mission by studying the spiritual teaching, organising information stands, presenting lectures, etc.
  • Should you decide to become a passive member, the possibility would then exist to found an official "Studiengruppe" (study group) which has to observe more formal requirements than an "Interessengruppe"; however, this would also require at least 2 passive members.
  • As a passive group member you would have the option to join FIGU-Landesgruppe Canada. In order to ensure that the group grows cohesively, develops interpersonally and ensures that all group members are involved equally in the group decision-making processes, group members are required to attend our monthly meetings in person in Toronto, ON. If these prerequisites are met and you are interested in becoming a member of the FIGU-Landesgruppe Canada, please notify us through the Contact Us page. We recognise that the geographic size of Canada presents some challenges to being able to attend our meetings (distance, finances, family commitments, etc.). Therefore the next few options are other ways that you can contribute directly to FIGU-Landesgruppe Canada.
  • You may also contribute to the FIGU-Landesgruppe Canada newsletter.  These are published quarterly on our website. We welcome the submission of FIGU-related articles, opinion pieces, short stories or other kinds of written and creative work which naturally, will be subject to our approval.
  • FIGU-Landesgruppe Canada welcomes you to attend any of our public events including our monthly public meetings on the third Sunday of every month in Toronto, ON.
  • You may also choose to make a financial donation. We welcome any financial contributions that would assist us in our various projects. To read our rules and regulations concerning donations and to donate please click here 


We look forward to hearing back from you!

Salome, 

FIGU-Landesgruppe Canada
