If you are here, you belong

Like many, we found organized religion empty. But we’d also experienced its power to transform us. So, rather than abandon it, we began to rethink, strip down, and rebuild it. We’ve become deeply grounded in the universal essence we found—the thread of Divine Life common to all of us. 

Until we can meet again in person, join us on our public Facebook page Sundays at 10:00 a.m. for a livestream of our service or watch later on our website here.

Building the Power We Need to Change the World

Here. Now. Small. Doable. How often do we repeat those simple guidelines? We repeat them so often, because again and again, they are how we access ancient wisdom. And building the power necessary to change the world -- no exception. Have a listen.  

We Have Met The Enemy — And He Is Us

We Have Met The Enemy — And He Is Us

One of our brain's evolved survival mechanisms is the proclivity to externalize our troubles and assign them to "the other." It may have been a helpful survival strategy in hunter-gatherer bands thousands of years ago... But now? In a globalized society? Toxic! ...
