We are dedicated to spiritual awakening by fostering the presence of peace in the community, the world, and in the hearts and minds of individuals. This is our mission. Spiritual awakening is the revelation of our inherent divine nature; it is not something attained or created. Peace simply facilitates it. A peaceful, conscious, heart and mind allow one’s true Self to be realized. Self-realization is the key to conscious living and a world where everyone can thrive.
You can experience the spiritual teachings of the Center through many different avenues. The Center offers worship services; adult enrichment classes in spiritual philosophy and practice, healthy living, and Hatha Yoga; retreats; leadership training; spiritual direction and counseling; children's education; and a thriving spiritual community. Join us for our next newcomer orientation (see calendar).
