What we're about

SOUL Community is a blossoming spiritual community in Columbia, Maryland. Our goal is to create a refuge for those who long for the community of church but without the limitations and dogma often found within. We are an interfaith community seeking awakening, practicing love, and lifting each other higher and higher. We welcome YOU to be a part of it!

We also host a monthly meditation in Columbia which you can find here: https://www.meetup.com/Ellicott-City-Columbia-Maryland-Meditation/

We have a strong foundation in mindfulness meditation practices and while meditation is rooted in Buddhist philosophy, you do not need to identify as Buddhist, or anything at all for that matter! We have members who have active religious lives, and many others who have been turned off by the dogma of religion. The techniques of mindfulness and insight meditation that we practice are applicable to all of life so we invite you to come see for yourself what meditation is all about!

Beginners and experienced meditation practitioners are welcome.
