    OUR VISION

    The Center serves all seekers — whoever they are and wherever they are on their spiritual journeys.

    The Center’s offerings promote compassionate action and transformative growth in relationship to God, neighbor, self, creation, and cosmos through the integration of practice, learning, engagement, and reflection. We emphasize experiential learning through spiritual practices, real-world engagement, peer teaching, and other learning methods.

    our mission

    We are committed to providing opportunities to discover and learn a variety of spiritual practices for all seekers.

     

    By 2025, Center for Spiritual Wisdom will be known as the resource for holistic spiritual growth in Western North Carolina, connecting self, community, and world.

    We are committed to providing opportunities to discover and learn a variety of spiritual practices for all seekers.

    We will develop our organization and build a base of financial sustainability and a core constituency of people who turn to the Center for their spiritual needs.

    Participants will experience the joy of a deeper and more enriched life through our experiential approach, open to the wisdom of the great spiritual traditions.

    Our Principles

     

    Center for Spiritual Wisdom was founded by a group of seekers in 2016. Here are the key principles we named at our founding.

     

    • The Center’s offerings will promote compassionate action and transformative growth in relationship to God, neighbor, self, creation, and cosmos through the integration of practice, learning, engagement and reflection.

    • The Center will be rooted in the Perennial Tradition as expressed in the contemplative and mystical dimensions of the world’s great religions. It will be intentionally ecumenical and open to the wisdom of multiple spiritual traditions.

    • The Center will strive to integrate the active and contemplative dimensions of life: soul work & justice work, science & spirituality, faith & reason, individual needs & the public good.

    • The leaders of the Center will function as a circle of trust and promote an ethic of caring companionship in their collaborations.

    • Spiritual practices will be defined broadly to include traditional practices such as lectio divina and contemplative prayer, personal learning tools such as the Enneagram, and contemporary practices such as eco-spirituality, social justice engagement, and the creative arts.
