While no two Sacred Spaces have all the same elements and can vary greatly from city to city, all of them are expressions of being a secular and interfaith community where all are welcome to gather for transformative practices, compassionate listening, and community connection. Coupling contemplative wisdom with research-based practices, Sacred Spaces may also offer small groups and classes, inspiration from the world’s spiritual traditions, music sits led by varied local musicians, coaching and spiritual direction, or Compassionate Integrity Training, all with the aim of bringing together inner resources to drive social change.
The Sacred Space mission is to cultivate compassion and be a source of public renewal and contemplative education so that we can increase our capacity to work together toward collaborative solutions. This work is part of the current global movement for building compassionate community, led by the Charter for Compassion which is dedicated to generating understanding and cooperation between people of all backgrounds and beliefs. All who participate in Sacred Space are encouraged to become members of the Charter and participate in its broad offerings that connect people across the globe to make lasting change in their respective cities.
