Referrals to Study Groups and Local Readers
Urantia Foundation encourages readers of The Urantia Book to attend or organize study groups in their communities. Studying and discussing The Urantia Book with others enhances understanding by presenting a variety of perspectives. Each study group is independent and develops its own style of studying the book that best fits the needs of its members. Our Reader Services Department assists by sharing experiences gleaned from those who have participated in study groups and provides contact information to nearby study groups or individual readers.
To receive a list of study groups and referrals in your area, please fill out our Mailing List Form and include your wish to receive such information in the comment section. We will make every effort to answer your request on a timely basis. You may also call Urantia Foundation at 773-525-3319 during normal working hours and speak to a staff member.
In addition to Urantia Foundation's study group list, both Urantia Association of the United States and The Urantia Book Fellowship have lists online. Urantia Foundation can not guarantee the accuracy of information on these lists, but your search may benefit from them.

Truthbook Discussion Board & Online Study Group
"This discussion board has one primary goal: To be a safe place where newcomers to The Urantia Book can ask questions and explore the teachings of The Urantia Book in a communal setting. In a sense, this forum is a Virtual Urantia Book Study Group. Specifically, it is a place for new readers to meet long-time readers. We welcome long-time readers as a valuable resource for assisting newcomers to better understand the teachings of The Urantia Book; this discussion board is provided for the benefit of long-time readers too, keeping our primary goal in mind."
The Urantia Book Forum (UAI)
"The Urantia Book Forum was created by Urantia Association International in 2005 as an international web-home for members to converse and study. In 2006, the Forum opened to the public. Now guests may view any of thousands of posts on hundreds of Urantia Book related topics written by a diverse group of students and teachers. Guests can view all subforums, members may post questions, comments, insights, and use the Forum's many features. If you are not close to a study group, or simply want to supplement your study, the OPAD (one-page-a-day) online study session is open 24/7/365. Readers, students and teachers from around the world meet at this Forum daily to grow in understanding and to make or connect with new and old friends in the global reader community. Visit us!"
