About Us

We are a welcoming community that embraces many spiritual paths. There is no dogma here. No one will tell you what to think or how you should act. Our community celebrates diversity. We believe in freedom, personal accountability, and mutual respect.

Spiritual Coaches

A spiritual coach or licensed practitioner is trained in the art and science of positive prayer (also called spiritual mind treatment).

Practitioners see the divine magnificence in every person and know the greater good in every situation. They are committed to their own spiritual practice and they are in service to others. Let them support you in finding the divine truth in your current situation. If you are facing a challenge in your life; if you are feeling lost in any way; or if you just want to be reminded of the greatness within you, consult a spiritual coach.
