Are you seeking a safe place to explore a range of topics from racism to different faith traditions — all within the context of the spiritual principles of Oneness, Love, and Freedom? Join us for an introductory gathering of our Center’s Conscious Inclusion Circle. This open gathering is hosted by 6 of our ministers and practitioners. Our intention is to begin a journey together of personal education, reflection, self-care, and social healing by creating an ever-widening and trusted space where everyone has “a place at the table.”

The Outreach Team connects to groups outside the Center community. Creating a bond among communities, they initiate programs that meet on-going needs. For example, they collect stuffed animals for children, have a gift tree for elders, gather food for families in crisis and join up with the Animal Connection to provide food and blankets for pets living at the Humane Society. Their goal is to actively participate in creating a world that works for everyone.
