    Autobiographical Spiritual Odyssey

    BYOT guides participants through case studies, group sharing and introspective exercises aimed at self evaluation of one's beliefs and how they may have evolved over time. The facilitator attempts to provide a safe place for open sharing and exploration while also moving the group through the material for each session. Many UUs find that they want to periodically revisit and may re-enroll in BYOT multiple times as years go by.
