What we're about

We will host diverse programs that support spiritual development, including a Zen Meditation group, an interfaith dialogue cooperation circle, meditations for world peace, and ayni despacho ceremonies to honor the Earth. These events are sponsored by California Institute for Human Science, and are open to all.

The interfaith cooperation circle is a partnership with United Religions Initiative, an international organization that works internationally to promote enduring, daily interfaith cooperation, and to create cultures of peace, justice and healing for the Earth and all living beings.

We intend to create more opportunities to learn about each other’s wisdom traditions, to share stories about our experiences, and to engage in partnerships with interfaith groups across the world who share the vision—together building a global network of peace.
