gatherings

We meet Sundays from 3 to 5 p.m. in a Santa Monica home. Given that our meeting place is a home, we don’t post the address on the web, but if you contact us at connect@thespiritual.center, we’ll get you there.  


A given gathering includes warm-hearted connection over snacks, brief instruction about different aspects of spirituality before an opportunity for meditation (or a version in the Trappist tradition called Centering Prayer) or silent prayer, conversation about items of interest (commonly including passages from the Bible), prayer for needs among the group, and occasional experiences with music or art. Many people find a significant benefit to be the chance to become friends with others at a similar place on their spiritual path.
