Illuminating-PathsIlluminating Paths

Illuminating Paths was created in 2006 to provide space for those seeking to understand themselves, others, the world, and the divine through spiritual reflection and practice. We seek to accompany individuals, groups, and communities on their life journeys.

Whatever paths we find ourselves on - however we name God, Creator, sacred, or divine - our desire to is invite people into lives that are more free, more awake, and more fully alive. We seek to be transformed by the illuminating power of Love, claiming our true selves as beloved and choosing lives of abundance.
