We are not a religion, we are an experiment in philosophical spiritual community. We believe that we can positively affect the way we experience and treat each other without claiming that ours is the only way. We believe in individual freedom, personal responsibility, and the importance of community.                                                          

Office Hours :

Monday-Friday 5-7 pm.

Or by appt. Contact Rick at 404-226-6843

We believe that people shouldn’t be excluded or disenfranchised because of race, gender, sexual orientation, physical or intellectual challenges, income, etc., and that we should take an active role in inclusion.

We believe it is important to support community initiatives in areas of social justice and hunger drives, to name a few, as well as projects closer to home such as accessibility improvements and youth education.

If you are intrigued, curious, excited by this different way of approaching a sense of meaning and purpose, come to a Celebration of Life, talk to a member and they’ll be glad to share their experience with you.
